    yeah that is why I oppose it. our federal government is 10X the size it was supposed to be

    In reality, probably many more X that.

    No, a world government would be a disaster. How will you unite communists, Islamic theocracies, third world dictatorships, democratic countries, and other types of governments under the same leadership and government?

    I'm even of the persuasion that the fed in our own country is too large and cannot govern people inappropriately. There is a drastic political difference between the Northeast and the Midwest. I support more state's rights to allow people to actually have their opinions and beliefs matter instead of being silenced or diluted by another person thousands of miles away in a different culture and with a different beliefs system.

    This would certainly help to equalize conditions throughout the world. With the world government taxing authority, it would be easy to get the richer countries to contribute more to help the poorer counties.

The only problem is there would be no one to trade with so ultimately we would have to work to keep the nation alive trading among each other. Honestly I don't even know if capitalism would work for a world government since there would be no competition. There's a ton of things to considerand I personally think because of human nature a world government in even 200 years isn't possible. But as a hypothetical would you support such a idea?
    I hope that this world will never be "ready" for a world government.

    We are under no obligation to pay for poor countries nor is the wealth of the rich countries something that poor countries are entitled to. How many of them are poor because of dictatorships or oppressive governments?

    I suggest anybody who thinks a world government is needed or viable go to the local psychiatrist. One has been reading too many sci-fi books
    "The misery of being exploited by capitalists is nothing compared to the misery of not being exploited at all" - Joan Robinson
    "The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries" - Winston Churchill
