Trump hits new low in approval poll
Americans say that the reason the elites want to kill off the 99% is to save the environment, but maybe the globalists are just evil, insane, and greedy.

Clearly the solution is to cut their taxes.

Almost every problem in the US is caused by the government.

Rents and medical care are expensive because of regulations.

The economy is collapsing because everyone is under house arrest.

Tuition is expensive because of student loans.

The debt is increasing because of wars and welfare.

Airline tickets are expensive because foreign airlines cannot fly domestic routes.

Puerto Rico couldn't recover from a hurricane faster because of the Jones Act.

Prisons are crowded because everything is illegal.

Families fall apart because females marry the state instead of a man.

The government exists to regulate capitalism.

Rent and medical care are regulated because those areas are subject to regulatory capture


The government is in the student loan business because our capitalists want a competitive economy.

Foreign airlines cannot fly domestic routes because they might undercut domestic airlines, i.e. capitalist competitors.

Everything is illegal because property rights are so stringently enforced.

Etc.

Remove commodity production for exchange and you have no government.

Wow.

Americans are so enslaved that they think government agents are holy gods, but since the elites and the government are the same now, asking for government protection from businesses is like asking a thief to watch your house when you go on vacation.

Maybe the real reason there are laws against car repair is because car dealers lobby for them.

Maybe the real reason there are food stamps now is because food and banking corporations lobby for them.

Maybe the real reason tax filing is so difficult is that tax preparation corporations lobby for complicated tax forms.

Maybe the real reason there are laws against ridesharing is because taxi cab companies lobby for regulations against competition.

Maybe the real reason there are mandatory vaccine laws now is because pharmaceutical corporations lobby for them.

Maybe the real reason the US is a police state now is because private prison corporations lobby for it.

The government takes away your freedom, but won’t protect you.

The way to deal with danger today is to do what worked in the past.

Government needs to be small and people need to take personal responsibility and embrace freedom.

Being dangerous is not in the best of companies.

The big difference between private business and tyranny is that you can boycott the free market, but the government forces you at gunpoint to do something or not do something.

Look not to the politicians; look to yourselves.

Liberty is always dangerous, but it is the safest thing we have.

What do we need government for anyway?

Everything the free market does is better than what government does.

Would you rather graduate from Harvard or the University of New Mexico? Would you rather own a Yugo or a BMW?

If a private association like the MPAA can regulate movies, why can’t the private market regulate other things?

When the TSA fingers your asshole and pulls your cock, is the real purpose to protect you or to make you feel like a degraded slave?

When people smoke now, people just call the police on them, but people in the past either took some personal responsibility and ignored smokers, moved away from smokers, or asked smokers to go somewhere else. The problem with a police state is everyone now is either or a slave or a criminal. Who pays the taxes to pay for tyranny?

If smoking is dangerous, can’t nonprofits raise funds to pay for educational campaigns that warn of the dangers of smoking instead of outlawing smoking?

Can’t people use the BBB to verify if a business is good or not instead of forcing companies to pay fees to get a government business license?

Can’t private charities funded by volunteer donations provide homeless shelters and soup kitchens instead of being at forced at the point of a gun by the government to pay taxes that fund welfare?

Can’t people use guns to protect themselves instead of relying on the Gestapo?

So 'unexpected consequences' happen. So diminishing returns is a reality. Oh, am I shocked! Shocked! Shocked!

If you think that the sole reason for the state to exist is to help evil capitalists then why would you support the government?

I recently watched a documentary on Toposa people of South Sudan.

"What is your greatest dream?"
"To be alive"
"What future do you want for your kids"
"I want them to be alive"

Of course they work pretty hard... just to stay alive.

Every country is a police state now, but only countries that disobey the globalists are called dictatorships.
