Can we tax them?

There's a special sauce joke that could be made on this thread, but I'm just too damn lazy to write it.

I think we're better off with no president or congress.

Sure. That's how things work on the Walking Dead and look how great they have it.

Ha!

Walking Dead wasn't without any political structure. They had a Governor.

Lol

@batwatch: I always have trouble buying into the libertarian pitches on politicians, specifically when they talk about giving citizens their liberty back. Everyone hates how much power the government has before they become another cog in the machine and I can't think of any president who has actually signed away their own expanded power. Every expansion of government power is kind of like letting the genie out of the bottle, you can try to get it back but it just doesn't work out that way.

@frozen: Yes, when white people are longer the majority. Then the news will focus almost entirely on the new majority and virtually ignore the rest of the people until someone forces the issue. And by the way this ain't just an American thing, its a humanity thing.

It's not actually that simple. "Racial majority" isn't really about raw numbers anymore, it's more about power and ownership over resources. By 2050 Latinos are expected to tie whites in numbers but they won't automatically become the new majority. More likely, over the next several centuries whites will continue to breed into other races until the concept of race by skin color will be no longer effective in describing race. After that point a new standard of physical features might change the meaning of race or social class might just replace race entirely. Either way, we'll both be long dead before any of this occurs.

@ostyo: George Washington was a Federalist so he probably wouldn't be eligible.

Don't care so long as they all lose the actual election.

Why should they?

Yep. They talk about war, but have no intention on joining the battle. Pure chicken hawks.

Yep, and every oncologist must have cancer. What sort of cowardly doctor prescribes treatment that he will not himself undergo?
