Comment: What is the point?

In reply to comment: That was a pretty long reply (see in situ)

What is the point?

"And that you (apparently) do. You seem pretty (annoyed?) impatient that you are one of the only people that understands it, and nobody else seems to be catching on."

I'm just passing on measurable observations, so what you read into things, or fail to read into things are your responsibilities accountable to you. If you continue to move the topic from the topic to me personally, fabricating someone who is "annoyed", or "impatient" or whatever you can dream up, then your contribute is exactly that, fabrications of diversionary personal perspectives aimed at me.

I employed a "you don't get it" phrase to stress the point of that having already been done in this thread, before you showed up.

"Because I never found the concept of a limited, decentralized government bound by the rule of law to be all that complicated or confusing."

A State, such as New Jersey...

I cut myself off, so as to get me out of the picture entirely, and the quote I will offer to any reader, including you, has nothing to do with me (other than I share the accurately measurable observation) so you can take your personal attacks up with that author if that is your axe to grind here on this forum.

Quote:

"Second, federalism permits the states to operate as laboratories of democracy-to experiment with various policies and Programs [footnote 12]. For example, if Tennessee wanted to provide a state-run health system for its citizens, the other 49 states could observe the effects of this venture on Tennessee's economy, the quality of care provided, and the overall cost of health care. If the plan proved to be efficacious other states might choose to emulate it, or adopt a plan taking into account any problems surfacing in Tennessee. If the plan proved to be a disastrous intervention, the other 49 could decide to leave the provision of medical care to the private sector. With national plans and programs, the national officials simply roll the dice for all 284 million people of the United States and hope they get things right."

Your words:

"Because I never found the concept of a limited, decentralized government bound by the rule of law to be all that complicated or confusing."

Competitive words:

"Second, federalism permits the states to operate as laboratories of democracy-to experiment with various policies and Programs [footnote 12]."

"With national plans and programs, the national officials simply roll the dice for all 284 million people of the United States and hope they get things right."

The question is, then, do you know the difference between a National (Consolidated) government and a competitive free market confederated voluntary union type government?

I could ask just about anyone, I don't have to ask you.
