You certainly got the playing

You certainly got the playing dumb thing down pat; well, I hope your only playing.

If I had crack on my person; who is that hurting? If you answered nobody, then you would be correct. So, then might I ask what gives you the authority to outlaw something which isn't hurting anybody?

What about if I had a handgun? Who is that in-of-itself hurting? If you answered nobody, you would correct. So, what gives you the authority to outlaw that which is not violating your rights?

The organize crime started mainly when gambling became illegal. How does your neighbor gambling infringe on your rights? It doesn't; so what gives you the authority to outlaw that which doesn't violate your rights?

Organized crime, then got bigger, when the Government began outlawing drugs and then alcohol. How does your neighbor drinking alcohol infringe on your rights? It doesn't; so what gives you the authority to outlaw that which doesn't infringe upon your rights?

The funny thing about the business of the Mobs and the Cartels is that most of their money is made because the federal or State government banned or outlawed that which they had no authority to do so by either the Federal or State Constitutions. Neither the US Constitution nor any of the State Constitutions authorize either of those governments to be able to outlaw drugs, alcohol, gambling, prostituion, or many other things. Something tells me, you wouldn't like a society where the government adheared to the Constitutions.

As far as the Financial situations such as the S&L and the current situation; those institutions couldn't have existed the way they were or are, because for those institutions to be structured the way they were/are and to be operating without regard for consequences, was do to the fact that most of them are -by goverment saction- unable to face the consequences of their actions.

You keep trying to take our current system and just remove government and say that is how it will be. The people would have to determine if they want to do business with an individual or a company. I know that is just so much responsibility for one person, and the government should just do it; like they have been doing it, because that hasn't caused any problems. People will have to learn that if you leave someone else in charge of your money, the potential for it disappearing is higher than if the individual him/herself looked after it.

Musicians learned this; several of the most popular musicians and bands ended up poor because their financial manager stole the money. There was nothing the government could do to get it back; because the musician or band didn't read the contract and basically gave away the rights to their money. People will continue to try and steal; the government making a law doesn't stop this nor does it even deter it.
