That's fine, but the State should simply be going to another supplier. Right or wrong, just or unjust, private industry should have no hold over
Considering lobbyists pretty much write the laws and large finance corporations pretty much ARE the government, I fail to see the validity of your
I don't know, that's kinda like saying the Nazi's wiped out most the jews so who cares if we sterilize them all. Sorry for being over dramatic and
kind of blowing it out of proportion... But it's true.
Another comment I made in this thread was blown out of proportion too. GMO milk, blah, blah, blah, being mandated by private corps to be fed to you.
Call it Soylent Green, call it whatever you want. 100's of loons come on these boards daily whining about antibiotics in their food supply, growth
hormones, fluoride and the like, but somehow when it comes to guns, they have no qualms of a private industry forcefully pressing government
The less grip the government has over itself and the further we let that grip vanish, the less effective a government can be in its duty.
At this point, government has already become completely useless.
One member mentioned that even with 100% opposition from the people, the US Gov would still instil a law they were behind. While a unpopular law
recently was struck down in Canada because of the will of the people. What does that say about Canadian Gov? Maybe it works, maybe this was all
planned and a new law will make it through... Time will tell.
Just because we have lobbyists, do we accept without conditions private biz to manipulate Gov by determining who they will or will not service, send
product to, support? This sounds very similar to the days when aristocrats chose which clans and factions they would back to see themselves the best
possibility of increasing their own wealth.
Either the gov works for corporations, or people. Either its actions are dictated by the will of the people, or the will of private business.
I actually believe in the 2nd amendment rights laid out in the constitution. However, if you think a multi national arms dealing corporation gives two
#s about you or anyone else's rights in the country, you're sadly mistaken.
If eye for eye laws were allowed, mid day shootings for grievances by common men, the arms dealers would be jumping at the chance to sell weapons to
anyone that would buy....
Just because it appears someone is on your side, doesn't make it so.
Technically, the gov is supposed to be, which seems to be a dismal failure in the US.
Just my opinion.
