    What appeal to emotion?

    BTW there ain't 7 billion people in the world:

    And and not all 6.8+ billion people are causing harm.

    I'm not worried about voters liking it or not. I'm a very unlikeable person with very unlikeable ideas.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Your answer is that only the super wealthy get medical treatment? I wonder why no politician has ever ran on that platform and won?

    Eh or lack of responsibility, I'm not a big fan of fiat currency. Expanding credit crazily, creating all these booms and bust, keeping interest rates low, creating mal investment, etc.

    W/O the masses being in the system the uber wealthy would not have health care as we know it and its terrific accomplishments.

    So you don't seriously think this plan could ever get passed. We are in agreement there.

    6.9 as of 2010. Here's something more up to date:

    US Census Bureau

    The amount of people is causing major problems. More people means more energy needed, more production, more industrialization, more cars on the road, more food consumed, more land taken, etc etc etc.

    That's why we need government. To craft policies that give the appearance of abundance despite booming population and dwindling resources.

    Nobody in their right mind would approve of such a thing. even I wouldn't vote for it, but mass reduction of population will at some point become entirely necessary, and part of that is to allow the surplus population to die off.
