I love the attitude displayed

I love the attitude displayed in this video.

I enjoyed it immensely. Instead of 19th Amendment and politics, maybe more women should assume similar civil roles in towns across the USA.

Love this guy

He may not want to broadcast this. A whole lotta people wearing Ron Paul t-shirts are gonna show up :)

I don't know if this would work in a city.

I hope to one day live in a place like that. I would kinda feel bad moving to a place like that though. I wouldn't want to ruin it.

Me too

Me too

I found his only mention of Ron Paul!

It was in the comments of this video:

I would agree. Ron is the

I would agree. Ron is the real deal, but what easier way for the Feds to do a head count than a national election?

Looks like you...

Looks like you also got caught up watching Bill's videos! There are very entertaining and educational!

Mayor Nystrom!

Got an idea for the 'Daily Paul'...
Maybe we should call it the Daily Max!
Or the 'Daily Mr. Bill'.


I grew up about 70 miles from there

There are a lot of towns in Nebraska that are unincorporated. We had one just down the road called Willow Island. It was unincorporated. Had a highway (US 30)running right down the middle of it. So just because it is unincorporated doesn't mean you have to do without power or paved roads. The only problem with living there is 107 degree temps in the summer with 99% humidity and temps to -70 (with the wind chill) in the winter. The people do wave at everyone they meet going down the road and if you break down you eventually have to start waving folks to keep going because you get to many people stopping to lend a hand. Not a bad problem as far as problems go! :) Also watch out for Rattlesnakes.

To what degree is the city of Max operating without government?

Even though the city is small, it still brings up some principles of how a larger city could function with much less government. It is small, but it still shows real examples of how local solutions by private citizens can do what many think is supposed to be a "governmental" function. Government bureaucracy is not needed for their roads, for example, since the local citizens take care of the roads themselves.

However, I have to wonder to what degree the local town economy truly is functioning without government assistance. For example, how many citizens of Max receive money from federal or state governmental assistance via social security, medicare, unemployment, disability, etc..

If the citizens of Max decided that none of them would receive governmental assistance then the model, though small, perhaps starts to look much more interesting.... to the degree its citizens are receiving checks from the government it seems to undercut its "with no government" argument...leaving aside the issue of the currency it uses for its local economy.

Nevertheless, it still is great to see the example for what it is.

There are many towns like this

I once drove into Oatman, AZ, which was supposed to be mining ghost town. I wanted to see a ghost town. Well, to my surprise, I found a little town, which I guessed thrived on tourism. Wild donkeys walked the streets. I ended up talking to one of the locals and he told me that the nearest cop is in Kingman, AZ, a 45 minute drive through desolate desert.
"What do you do if you need a cop?" I asked him.
"Oh, we just solve it ourselves" he replied.

It's generally not a good idea to be a cop caller in Western

Arizona. About a month ago I had to be in front of the local magistrate because some asshole tried to push me around and the judge asked me why I didn't call 911, and I said because I'm afraid to call 911!

The smart towns don't have cops!

I have a feeling

there's more cities like Max that we just never heard about.

This guy and his 300 plus

This guy and his 300 plus videos should be pinned to the top front page.
This is reality not some theory of living in liberty.

sounds good

except I think a paramedic and a firefighter would be nice.

Volunteer fire departments

Volunteer fire departments have been used by many small towns and cities - even INCORPORATED ones.

For instance: My family moved to Milan MI when I was about 7 years old. The village became a city while I was there. (It exactly straddled the county line, so becoming a city was somewhat complex.) They used a volunteer fire department all the time I was there, and for all I know still do. (The town got so big they had to add a second siren a mile or so from the first, so the volunteers in the northern part of the city could hear it.)

Milan is no slouch of a city: It sits on the intersection of two railroads and was a major market town supplying southeastern Michigan farmers. Businesses in those days included grain elevators, a parts factory for Ford, a plastic devices plant, a "screw machine" company (making small parts like screws and the metal hub inserts for plastic car-window crank knobs by machining the ends of bar stock), a large farm equipment dealer (tractors, combines, ...), and the housing for the civilian workers and guards for the nearby low-security federal prison.

towns.... Try Lawrence County Missouri

Volunteer fire covers the county.
There are towns that have professional firemen, but the volunteers all have the same training Fire1 Fire2 and emt minimum. They also respond to the accidents on I44 so we are not talking remote or unpopulated.
The second hand equipment purchased for nearly nothing is better than most towns.
Volunteer Sheriff Auxiliary.
Can live in the county and be 30 minutes from Springfield Missouri.
Sheriff is one of six who wrote the feds that they would not just refuse to enforce the federal unconstitutional laws but they would intercede upon citizens behalf to prevent the Feds from enforcing their unconstitutional laws.
Lawrence County Missouri.

Hamburg TWP MI has a volunteer fire department in 1984

Most of the volunteers were also involved in Scouting.

They went "professional" about a decade later.

Times changed as the township grew.
