A great video on why people's money should just stay with them

I also really liked one thing that Stoss said, he said a state could be a "Democracy Laboratory"
That's awesome, imagine if we had good leadership and they actually tried different positive things in different states so everyone could learn from each other.



You it just goes to show you, running a country is not as complicated as partisanship would like you to believe.
Just imagine what would have been possible if it weren't for big govt.

Personally I love the fifty state country plan. Don't like the rules in California move to Montana and visa-verse. How cool would it to not have to jump on a plane to go to a place with lots of guns or no guns. With lots of liberals or no liberals.

It would not work as travel would be a nightmare.

I see what you are saying
But I don't mean to sound offensive to any leftie but I wouldn't mind moving to a place with no liberals.
The main reason why I say that is because "No Social Engineering", but of course it may be fooling to assume that there would be none, but I can dream can't I?

I was talking to my nephew and guess what, his entire school has banned the word "Elder" or "Elderly".
Not allowed to say that on school grounds, you have to say "Senior Citizen".
WTH man...... Elder is a word of RESPECT!!!!!

I detest social engineering!

Senior citizen berries just sounds odd to me.

Wonder what it's going to be like when all the emo / goth kids are running the country?

Do you realize how much control and power the massive centralized federal government would lose?

They'll never go for that. Ever.

there are plenty of places around the world like that - Syria, Iran, Russia (there's a few left, but Putin is doing his best), Indonesia, China - probably others you can think of too - why not go to one of them?

They centralized government to make it easier to steal under the pretext that it was for our own good and safety. The commerce clause was the means to do it. I give you Obamacare

Nice try!

Who is closer to communism, libs or conservatives?
Who leans towards socialism more, just to help you out for that China comment.

Also you mention Iran.
Really? Which side of the fence is pro-redistribution of wealth?

The political system of the Islamic Republic is based on the 1979 Constitution. Accordingly, it is the duty of the Islamic government to furnish all citizens with equal and appropriate opportunities, to provide them with work, and to satisfy their essential needs, so that the course of their progress may be assured

Now before I continue with the other countries how about you do your research first?

Sounds good?

Because if you really want to go in on this I can do it no problem
