@patchgrabber: would be to do it on a smaller level, i.e. municipal, maybe state

Now you're speaking my kind of language! I am a federalist and states rights advocate afterall. If it was up to me, there would be no federal income tax at all. The federal government would levy a flat tax against all of the states and the states would collect taxes as they see fit.

I just don`t agree that we would necessarily need to migrate the best method to the federal government. The states would observe others and adopt the best policies.

@HA: While I'm not necessarily saying that trying new things is bad, I`m just saying that something as big as the US economy might be something too big to risk with. Also, being a scientist, I`m more convinced by empirical evidence and things that can be tested. So what I would do, if I were wanting to test out a new system, would be to do it on a smaller level, i.e. municipal, maybe state. Then if that microcosm model succeeded or was better, you could grow it to the mesocosm and more.

@patchgrabber: You can't just say it will and then be sure that it will unless you`re a genie or something


I think this would be a good time to state that I actually happen to be a genie.

@patchgrabber: It was supposed to be funny... The problem with your logic is that there is no room for improvement - ever. You cannot try anything new because "what if it doesn't work out?" Everything in this world includes some risks and some benefits. If we are too afraid to take the risks, then we are doomed to continue maintaining status quo. We never improve.

@HA: Excuse me while I lol. What I meant was exactly that: What if it doesn't? You can`t just say it will and then be sure that it will unless you`re a genie or something. Your only response now is that if it doesn`t, then you`ll "try something else." Well what if that doesn`t work as you think it will? How long can the US economy continue to exist off of your assumptions that may or may not pan out?
