A Great Idea!

Hey, I have a great idea! How about doing away with the Federal government altogether. Think of the money we'd save in salaries, retirement benefits, and all the horse pucky that goes along with it. There will be no more exorbitant campaign spending because of lengthy campaigns. We'd do away with the  continued rhetorical circumlocution otherwise known as crap. Decisions about defending our country can be determined by all of the governors in each of our states. 

We'll continue to be legally overseen by our individual state governors and a handful of the brightest state officials, who have to be reviewed by a board of responsible taxpayers before they can even run for office. We can then continue to do away with half of the politicians who run our states. Again, think of all the money and time we'd save. Maybe we can actually get some work done for the good of the people who reside in each state without taxing them to death. 

I'm all for the abolition of the U.S. Federal government. Bye-bye, sayonara, hasta la vista, tschus, and toodle-oo.

I'm giving a thumbs up for a pro-active state government.

okay, you know i love ya pam but this is making my brain squint. so you are really saying we should just break up into fifty countries. that's a lot of armies to build because i have to tell ya, if the country of new york thinks for a second they can go to war with my country of new jersey, i will be the first to catapult tomatoes in your general direction.

sorry pam. it's not personal, just war.

Pamela Beers. said...

No, no Bobby. I'm not saying we should break up into fifty countries.

What's with the tomatoes? Just remember...I have loads of horse pucky...in more ways than one.

lightly left a great comment, but it was "erased" by the google fiasco. lightly said he's married so he has to pay the "whine" tax.

Pam, Pam. You do realize you're advocating faith in the NEW YORK legislature, right? Maryland, sure, I could see that. Or Ohio, that would be nice. But New York? I mean, really.... And what I supposed to do here in FLORIDA? Good God, woman, get a grip.

Ev, we now have a sharp group of leaders in NY. They'll get things done. I like Cuomo, Duffy, and my local representative. They listen.

Oh yeah, Ev, I almost forgot; where's Florida again?
