[QUOTE=isired;3960967]You're right there, I got carried away. As Warfish pointed out, the principals are not wacky, for the most part. I don't think most of them are implementable, but that doesn't make them wacky.
I don't trust corporations as much as you do, I guess. Or their influence on politicians.
Yeah, and I don't know what to do there, tbh - part of me thinks the tea party 'cut the fed employee salary immediately' would go a good way towards minimizing career politicans, but I don't know that, for the politicians, it wouldn't eventually be made up one way or the other, 'on the back end', so to speak. So we might just wind up with less motivated people doing the 'work', and not affecting the politicians much at all. I don't know.[/QUOT
Chris Christie is providing the answers..albeit nobody wants to hear it. TRUST corporations??? That makes little sense IMO. Trust yourself, provide for yourself etc... I don't trust Walmart but that doesn't mean I need a typical federal worker retiring at 50 and being a burden on the rest of us for the next 30 years under the guise of protecting me.
