    The original system was fine. But we are not running the original system.

    I'm not big into politics but from my understanding, he had the right ideas, it just didn't really go anywhere.

    The original system was great 235 years ago, we need to refine our system drastically if we want to get anywhere.

    Drastically changing the system put us in the situation we are in today. Just because its old don't mean it ain't right. Also just because its new doesn't make it better.

    We will never find out whats better if we've never tried anything else.

    The issues today aren't political, one of the mistakes in our current society is trusting other humans driven by self wealth to run this country.

    Thing was the original system made us what we were 60+ years ago. A self sufficient industrial power house. Going off that model was an experiment. You know the whole "great society" BS? Well the bills due.

    Go back to states rights and shit will get better fast.

    But that doesn't fix the issues we are still plagued with, a replacement of the economic system that benefits everybody should be in order. It's hard to believe, but we can do without militarys and rid the world of most crimes if we were dedicated to changing.

    But we are so use to the current system that no one questions it. We just tuck ourselves in and tell ourselves we're the most ''free'' nation in the world.

    Oh I gotta hear this. What system would rid the world of crime? Better yet what system would remove the need for a military?

    Resource based. Our system produces scarcity, hence why most steal and kill, they want money or food for their family/themselves. So we make laws because we don't understand how to fix the root cause of our problems.

    Militarizes don't contribute anything to society, militarizes exist because of our unwillingness to solve issues, so we patch it up with violence cause that's all we know how to do. We kill Osama and then wait for the government to tell us who the next bad guy is and then we assassinate them, it's never ending stupidity. Don't you see that if we don't fix the underlying ideology we will just keep going in circles?

    especially since that's how the original constitution was written. The so called "federal" side of our government can be found nowhere in the document. We were supposed to be a federation much like how the EU is designed (but we'd do it better because this is the AMERICA TPU clubhouse) with States' rights and a trade agreement via the federation.
