Because we're ignorant and afraid that we won't be able to take care of ourselves. We'd rather deal with the devil that we know rather than
with the devil we don't.
Remember that old saying from the 60's? What if there was a war and nobody came? Well, what if there was an election and nobody came? We as
Americans have become so fat, dumb, and happy, that this as a solution is NOT unrealistic. It does, after all, involve doing nothing. How hard can
Let the border states, north, south, east, and west take care of the foriegn issues that affect THEM the most, and let the "fly-over" states
take care of themselves and domestic issues. If an issue that immediatly affects a border state bleeds over into a "fly-over" state, then it
immediatly becomes a state issue because the immediacy of the problem just changed geographically.
Why do we even have a federal govt. anymore? Because we think we are the UNITED states of America? We are united by geography ONLY. Arizona is not
united with, say, West Virginia. We have vastly different needs. Back in the 1700's we WERE the UNITED states of America. 13 colonies united against
England. Sorry to wake you up people, but this aint 1776 anymore. We are still trying to base our laws on a constitution that was written before cars,
telephones, electricity, and air travel. Our needs as a country have changed DRASTICALLY, but the basis by which we make our laws has not? Can we GET
any more socially retarded? That being said, a person would have to be delusional to think that the socially rejected morons in Washington could do a
better job at establishing and enforcing laws in any given state, then the people who actually live there. Arizona is a prime example
People are crying that the federal govt. is conspiring this and that against the American people. And they may very well be doing just that. Why?
BECAUSE WE LET THEM!!!
You want a conspiricy? Why don't you conspire against THEM? The are ALOT more common people then the are politicians, police, and the armed
forces combined. I'll bet we outnumber them ALL at least 1,000 to 1. Think about it.
This little experiment called "democracy" in the U.S. of A. has failed and everybody knows it. The system cannot be fixed. It HAS to be changed.
And it's gonna have to take the collectiveness of the common people to get their cajone's back on to make that change happen.
