if you can come up with a system that actually works ill go for it but i have yet to see such a system actually work without killing the populous tax wise.
Finch as far as me saying screw the guy who falls on hard times, im not. i dontate time and money to service organizations and charities that work to help out such ppl. why? because ive seen those work. our government is good at making and keeping jobs and growing ever bigger. they are not very good at finding actual, workable solutions on large scales such as a nation wide health care plan. part of the problem is cause the US is to big. to much land area to cover, to many ppl involved. what would work better is break it down and have the states in charge....smaller numbers of ppl, smaller areas to cover. less ppl needed to make things work. more importantly when someone decides they are going to screw something up its FAR more easy to track down the person and hold them accountable for their actions. every time the schools here ask for more money through taxes i vote to give it to them, why? cause i know the school board and if they do stupid chit, i can inform them of their stupidity face to face. much easier to give up part of my pay check if i know who i can yell at when it comes down to it..........when ever im unhappy with the fish and game..........i know where to go and get the answers. when things go wrong i cant make the drive to DC to beotch at my congressman and president but i can make the 7 hour drive to talk with the state ppl in Helena who are the cause of the problem.
i have no problem increasing state governments but ill e damned if im for increasing federal government. there are 300 million ppl in the US, my vote dont mean squat........there are 950,000ish ppl in Montana.....not only does my vote count...its easy to be known at a state level. someone in LA or New York has no clue what its like to live in Montana, let aloe northeast Montana...........dont like them making desisions for me. less federal government is a good thing.
