Lots of assertions, but no proofs. Frankly I don't care what you and your like minded associates wish to experiment with as long as you don't force me and my associates (or any unwilling third parties) to fund or participate in it. -- ff42
Reality is sometimes cruel.
Whether you like it or not, we were both born into the same 'home owner's association'. If you don't want to follow the rules or pay your dues -- then you can move, gain political power within the rules of the 'association', disregard the rules and suffer punishment, or take power by coercive means.
I believe thieves (people who would rather steal than honestly work) are drawn to any organization that has power over other people and that there can not exist a 'virus' to prevent them from running (and wining) for office.--ff42
if the federal government didnt have the power to regulate, tax, spend, et al beyond what is constutionally allowed by a balanced budget amendment, limit on spending as a % of GDP, private money, et al --- then it really wouldn't matter who got elected (except for national defense which wouldnt be an issue for an economically and technologically powerful and prosperous capitalist society).
Moreover, if states assumed the role of taxation and regulation, then they would be loath to abuse their productive citizenry since hard-working honest folk would flee these destructive states (Massachusetts, Illinios, California, et al).
Indeed, our constitution has been pretty effective at protecting civil and political rights the last 230 years -- it is possible to extend these protections to private property.
it is better than an anarchist alternative.
And we are still in the same home owners association, so we cant do much without each others support.
