Decentralization and Secession as a Viable Alternative to the Tyrannical Status Quo
Sunday, August 14, 2011
Because of the continuing fiascos in Washington; activists on the left and on the right, libertarians and socialists, will have to begin to face the fact that looking to the central planning elites in Washington for answers is futile . . . even counter-productive.
The debt ceiling will be raised for the 75th time since 1962, no real spending cuts will happen, taxes will again be raised, and happy days are here again for the politicians, the life-long bureaucrats, the industrial lobbyists and lawyers, and, especially, the Wall Street fat cats.
“Well, the next time they will implement their promised reforms,” say those who are still faithful in the central planning bureaucrats. But our chosen representatives do not fulfill their promises, and they never will. Sooner or later, we are going to have to face the reality that central planning is a promise that can never be kept.
have been trying to get that message across, especially in my March 2010 prediction that the 2010 elections would be just another rearranging of deck chairs (and I was right).
But it appears that too many people just have blind faith in central planning and the fantasy that “reforming” an inherently flawed system could ever work.
Faith in central planning, despite all the destruction the U.S. government has wrought, is something that needs to be overcome.
