Agreed. I'm not for a few people playing God with a multitude as if we are just pawns who can be disposed of. What makes one human being more important then another in terms of the value of life.

If history is to be our guide, the best government is local government.
The states in America were created as sovereign entities. Today, the constitution has been co-opted by fascists and communists in our government. The original intention of the founders was to create competition among the states so people could choose what kind of government they wanted to live under.
The federal government was constituted by the states to serve these purposes:
1. provide for a common defense
2. provide for a common currency of gold coinage
3. ensure all the states played fair with each other
that is it.
With sovereignty comes choice, the freedom to choose.
If you don't like the taxes or government in one state, you can move to another.
The fascists and communists that have usurped our government hate this competition among the states because it inherently prevents the centralization of power and socialism. We know socialist systems always fail and lead to tyranny, so if a state decided to become socialist, all of its productive capacity would eventually be driven out to surrounding states that didn't have such outrageous tax burdens and restrictions on freedom.
Today, we have no where to move too and are consigned to suffer under a tyrannical illegitimate government.
