I wish I could help these people.

Sometimes I think the funnest part of being a billionaire would be the option to help whoever needs it any time you want.

Musuko: Our American government now, is nothing like it was when it was first instituted. It has grown into a monster with it's tendrils into everyone's daily lives.

This government wants everyone under it's thumb in some way, they want people reliant on the government so they can control them. To these bureaucrats, anyone living independently of 'the system' is considered dangerous and needs to be crushed.

"Are you an American living in Europe by chance? If no, then your talking out of your butt."

No, I'm a European living in Europe...you know, that part of the world that has a history of ACTUAL oppressive governments.

Which somewhat puts the "oppression" you're suffering into perspective.

Incidentally, to COMPLETELY finish Godwining this thread: to everyone who has their flag up, talking about revolution and overthrowing the government, take a look at history and see what tends to happen shortly after such revolutions...at the extremes of government that usually form the replacement.

What's remarkable about the American revolution, and the arguably enlightened government that followed, is that it was a freak deviation from the norm. Don't rely on it being the expected outcome. Not when the Soviet Union and the Third Reich, among others, are in our history books.

"Obamacare will eventually be a single payer system"

The UK has a single payer system (we have a tax called "national insurance" that pays for, among other things, our healthcare system, state pensions and unemployment benefit)...

...yet you're still perfectly free to get private healthcare and insurance too.

So why do you assume it won't be the same there?

I don't necessarily think that the government is evil, but can't the government can't think of something to do better with their money??

"It really amuses me when I see topics like this. People seem to think of this being "us and them": where "us" are the normal people, and "them" is some faceless army of inhuman robots forming an alien gestalt "government".

It seems that the further the person withdraws from society, the stronger they hold this view. Isn't there a term for this, somewhere in psychology? Dehumanising through detachment?

The "government" is made up of people just like you. They're only as evil as you are. The X-files isn't real...no matter how much you wish it to be."

Are you an American living in Europe by chance? If no, then your talking out of your butt.

Bullsh|t, most government workers are liberal minded socialist bureaucrats. You can't ever get one fired, unless they do something truly horrible, their union SEIU protects them at all costs, and they really don't give a damn who they hurt. These NAT bureaucrats operate on rumor and innuendo, they have you convicted in their mind before they even go out to inspect your property, they are busy bodies with nothing else better to do than harass people.

These bureaucracies attract a disproportionate number of people who think either that people are a cancer on the world or private property is evil or both. Giving these people the kind of power they have is like giving a pedo a private room full of kindergarteners.

Its the goverments job to protect the people, so instead of messing with the people out in the desert that doesnt any harm, they should take care of there gang issues

as for the dessert folk didnt the samething happen to the hillbillies in tennessee and indiana where the people that didnt move got flooded by dams

if the government wants it they used to offer to buy it first, then ask you to leave, then annex you, but now it is sad that they just go straight to leave

I saw take this issue above there heads and keep going up

someone is obviously misinforming these people. Inspectors do not require a search warrant to inspect the property.
Remember Jaycee Dugard and how she lived in that massive building code violation in her abductor's backyard? The County Inspectors were in part found negligent when they did not follow on neighbors complaints about his property. So as a result I'd wager they are being hyper-vigilant now.

Who built the road that the truck bringing your solar panels to you drove upon?

No man is an island. You can make a pretty narrow peninsula, but rarely beyond that.

"the government will be the sole payer and the sole decider."

Umm...

...my country has universal healthcare, and you can still get private medical insurance and go to one of many private medical hospitals if you wish.

See that thing between your and your seat? Stop talking out of it.

Its a drive for control, and nothing else-that's all it needs to be. When people live on their own, supplying their own power and needs, they are out of the control of the government. NO cameras to watch then, no power to tax, no water and sewage service to tax, they are considered anti-American. I live in the desert, with slar and wind power, my own well, and raise animals and plants for my food and milk-the folks in this video would fit perfectly where I live. And I expect the same to happen to us one day. We don't conform, and its seen as dangerous.

Proof positive: A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take away everything you have.

Musuko: An insurance company can only say what procedures and treatments their company will cover the payment for, Granny may still have her hip replacement if she is able to afford it on her own, The IPAB will not even allow that, private pay will go out the window completely, the government will be the sole payer and the sole decider.
