“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
However, I would partially agree with him... These days, far too much of what the government does is an expense which is, at best, paired with a break-even benefit, and at worst, causes harm rather than helping.
Sometimes I think we're alone. Sometimes I think we're not. In either case, the thought is staggering. ~ R. Buckminster Fuller
Why do you believe any private sector in the US would be worse off if every customer could not claim to be in poverty (of money)?
You have yet to offer a solution to the poverty problem and how you propose to get every American above the poverty line which by the way would make these people upper middle class or upper class in many countries. Your inexperience and lack of real life experience is showing. You talk mumble jumble and say nothing which just shows your inability to comprehend the private sector economy and the vision of our Founders. How is that small central govt and part time legislature working out for us?
