Why This? The Sad Decline of Florida’s Space Coast
Because This. 7 surprising things the government spends more money on than space exploration
America’s government is a bloated, expensive boondoggle that is unaccountable to the voters who allegedly gave their consent for it to exist. Our whole society is overpriced, and instead of asking “Why is everything so expensive compared to other countries?”, voters keep voting higher minimum wages and more government benefits, and the fatcats and their pet lobbyists continue lapping up the gravy. Stupid.
Our Government Was Chosen For Us By Prior Generations of Now-Dead Americans Why Mandatory Voting Is a Bad Idea; Freedom means the right to ignore the state and live peacefully.
We are allowed the “Right to Vote” to grant the illusion of consent. Try ignoring anything the government does and you’ll find out in a hurry how great an illusion democracy really is. Mandatory voting is an idea typical of the current regime. The real question should be “Why don’t people vote?” The simple answer: It doesn’t appear to matter. What difference does it make when your vote is overshadowed, in a Presidential election for example, by Florida, Ohio and Colorado? Political strategists know from data mining how the other states will vote, so they can focus on those states instead. Our electoral college guarantees that a few states will dominate the race, because those states have the deciding electoral votes. Smoke and mirrors. That right there is why voter turnout is so low. Add to this the fact that even if you do vote, and your chosen candidate somehow gets himself elected, the courts will abuse judicial review to invalidate nearly anything your candidate does in response to your wishes. In the end, its all just an oligarchy and we, the People, serve its interests.
Piracy Is Armed Insurgents Attacking Ships at Sea and Either Murdering Everybody and Stealing Their Stuff, Or Taking Hostages (And Stealing Their Stuff) Netflix Wants To Make VPN Piracy Obsolete
This is not piracy. It is, rather, a reaction to an artificial system enacted by now obsolete media monopolies to control the flow of entertainment options around the world. If people didn’t have to wait six months to get a movie in a portable, non-theater-based format, and didn’t have to pay a fortune for it, and if they could access it anywhere in the world they pleased, then all this “piracy” would become unnecessary.
