Thank you for providing such a superb example of the people of whom I spoke. If you truly believe that fantasy that is dribbling out of your mouth, then Somalia is the place for you. No nanny state there to hold you back. Pure 100% unadulterated capitalism. You'll not be bothered by "Big Government" there. Dare to live the dream. If you believe it, live it. It's calling to you. Go to Somalia and see all that your ideals can be. Find out how nice it is when the government doesn't watchdog the quality of your roads, food, power, water, education, and so much more.
Your revisionist history is MOST amusing. Our founding fathers formed this nation in order to escape "taxation without representation". Right now, here in the US, our taxes are BOTH at an all time AND worldwide low. You can see the results of that in our deficit AND the current state of our economy. (Helped along by the last 50 years worth of idiotic deregulation, of course.)
You are spouting off about communism. Who is it, that you believe wants, or has tried to create a "Communist State"? Who, exactly, is it, that you believe has said ANYTHING against well regulated capitalism? There are no "Levelers. Not in this nation. There are "Balancers". I am one of them. I believe in economic balance. I believe in regulating exposed imbalances in our economy, in order to prevent atrocities like the ones in our very own history. Atrocities caused by people abusing the flaws in a predominantly "Capitalism" economy. You, are a Laissez-faire-ist. A sad position to take, as Laissez-faire has been proven CONCLUSIVELY, by history, to NOT WORK. You know it, to. As shown by the fact that you have to use scary words which you don't even know the meaning of, in order to form a ridiculous Strawman argument. Words like "Communism" and "Socialism". Your are a prime example of why we need to improve education in this nation. The lack of education shared by you and those like you, are leading this nation down a dark hole.
