If the government is shut down and still collecting taxes isn't that taxation without representation?
If a group emits bills of credit, and passes them off as a representation of wealth, isn't that counterfeit?
If nobody objects to the harm done, and the foriegn policy never changes, then aren't we all responsible for the countless innocent deaths all over the world and therefore don't we share responsibility for creating future enemies who are enraged by the death of their family member at the hands of a person from halfway around the globe?
If we print more money at a rate much quicker than the rate of more products produced and distribute it to certain groups first(banks, corporations, lobbyists, goverenment officials etc) wont they have an unfair advantage by utilizing the money prior to its taking effect on the function of the economy(i.e inflation), and wont it lead to a money which loses buying power over time?
If one saves in dollars and the government destroys the purchasing power of money by arbitrarily creating new money isn't that a tax and therefore theft?
If people give up their rights to liberty, privacy, habeas corpus, association, self defense, due process and even life can they truly be called free? And how can the surrender of those rights help defeat an enemy who we create more of with each second around the globe through collateral damage? Even if it did defeat them hypothetically, for what would we unfree things unfit for the name people be fighting other than our master's amusement?
If there is a central bank, price floors/ceilings, subsidies etc. how can this be called a free market?
If neither party gives the good of what they claim to bring to the table(dems-social liberty and reps- economic liberty) and instead both continue us down a path of dependence, sacrifice, debt and imperialism then aren't theyreally one party acting like two to deceive the public so that their agenda is furthered no matter what?
If we never fix our problems then who will? If we don't take action and adapt our government to serve us again then the fact that we are prisoners rather than free men will soon stare many of us in the face while our neighbors thank their diety that its not their type of people that are being rounded up and made an example out of this time.
