We don't need global government, we need self government

My position is that governments of the world need to be abolished or neutered. Government control over resources, starting wars and technology need to be taken away.

This is because the world is more global and interconnected. We don't need government controlling our lives and wasting our resources.

In America, you have close to 12 trillion dollars in debt and we have a 14 trillion dollar GDP. Government has us 12 trillion in the hole and they still have to fix everything.

We gave over 55 billion to Arafat. He died a billionaire and his wife was going on shopping trips in France while the people in Palestine live like it's 2,000 B.C.

In Zimbabwe, Mugabe and his crooked henchmen live good while the life expectancy is 37 years old.

The problem is Government.

In order for us to move from a type 0 to a type 1 civilization, we have to reduce the role of government and increase self government.

In most cases, people just want to live their lives. Governments want to control your life by controlling the resources of the country, technology and starting wars.

No matter how poor the people are in a country, those in Government are living good.

In a recent report, they showed that 44% or 237 members of Congress are millionaires compared to 1% of the population.

This is why Bloomberg spent 100 million for his seat and Corzine spent 23 million of his personal fortune.

These positions give you power of people's lives and billions of dollars of resources that you can use to gain more power and control.

Governments of the world need to be neutered. Sadly, many people depend on the government for everything.

We could do this in three ways:

1. Public financing of campaigns - These crooked politicians know it's not about the voters in most cases but it's about how much money you can raise. This is why they raise money when they are not facing a re-election. They want to build up the war chest and scare people off. So if you are not rich or you don't have name recognition then you can't run against all that money. It's money that secures their seats in Washington. Public financing would mean Barbera Boxer and Mitch McConnell would get the same amount of money as Jane or John Doe and they would have to win on the best ideas for the American people, not how much money they can raise.

2. Term Limits - These people stay in Washington too long and become institutions of corruption. Represenative Dingell banged the gavel in 1965 during the Medicare debate and he used the same gavel in the healthcare debate over the weekend.v So this guy has been in Washington since 1955 and we are going into 2010.

3. Ban on Corporate lobbying - Corporations and special interest have too much control over Congress.

We have to take drastic measures because if we don't get these crooks and this government under control are children will just here stories about what it was like when men were free.

Problem is infrastructure.

If private citizens had to maintain roads, for instance, we wouldn't be driving in 50 years.

No individual has the means to maintain our resources. It is strictly impossible. Same thing for power plants, and so on.

We aren't going from type 0 to type 1 without roads and power, I can tell you that much.

I would not recommend engaging or debating Matrix Rising. He is not an honest debater and will employ outright lies. I would recommend reviewing this thread to see the tactics he engages in.
