I asked this before, and people said to be more specific.
OK, things like the last election cost $ 5.8 billion, with taxpayer money going to advertising companies, lawyers, public servants who administer the election and various other interest groups. Now would you want to reduce your liberty in abolishing the voting system so that this money can be spent on building schools, hospitals and creating jobs for your family?
Things like the current budget crisis, the Tea Party is trying to get more federal funding in their states to get more votes, would you put aside your political interest for the greater good of the nation and the average American?
America have more police and prisoners than China, even though US have at least 3 times less the population. This is a FACT. Would you put away your liberty to own guns as your hobby for the greater good of the nation?
During Hurrican Katrina, it was a big mess with people shooting guns at aid helicopters and looters rampant. Would you reduce your liberty for a tougher system like China, where police are given authority to shoot armed looters on sight and those prevent aid during a national emergency?
Last week I saw a man refuse to sell his house blocking a national highway, that cost the government millions in delays but he refuse to sell. Would you reduce your personal liberty like in China where government would forcibly remove your house after if you refuse compensation for delaying a national project?
