If by some miracle Washington, DC, A/K/A the Nexus of Evil, were to disappear tomorrow along with all of the political caste which occupies it, how would the rest of the country/world fare? Could we do without the federal government? Could the world do without America as Globocop?

    Evil seeks a vacuum which it can fill, i.e., Somalia, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, Lebanon, and all others. Removing government is only half the battle -- and it's the easy half. Then begins the BIG work -- just ask the Founding Fathers.

    although i think the real n-o-e is not who you say, it's funny but the real n-o-e if vanquished would be far better, for the world to be without as long as greed goes with it! because greed is the cause of so much injustice in our world today, im surprised your god,allah,the great spirit,buddah, and all the orther names assinged by the faiths of the world havent simply put an end to them all

    Lawless anarchy in the short term. Much better off in the long term since liberalism and cultural marxism wouldn't survive the crisis.

    you would be shocked, i know more creative, liberal minded people, who arent bound by their insane archaic beliefs and cultisms that would survive, than the cultist conservatives who prepare & prepare only to get stuck with a bunch of outdated useless spoiled crap, remember conservatives were the ones who said computers are just for childhood fads and young people to waste time on?

    What is wrong with the world isn't limited to our centers of government, faith, or learning. It is in the hearts and minds of the people. All of these other things are merely extensions of what exists in society as a whole. Only by fixing what is wrong in ourselves en masse can there ever be any true and lasting change in our institutions. Unfortunately since people generally tend to cling to the notion, "there isn't anything wrong with me". It's always "all of them". That change will never happen. And as the population gets larger, the divisions become broader and the problem compounds exponentially.

    The U.S. and the world would be much better off if we would eliminate the federal government from everything except defense against all foreign and domestic enemies. This would include protecting our borders from illegal aliens, communists, Muslims, and racists. The world should also understand we are not the world police, but God help the world if they decide they want a piece of us.

    Just like the Salem Witch Hunts, lynchings in the South and gun fights of the west....the nation would be out of control. We'd be dictated by people's religious beliefs, bigotry and greed. The government gives an equal playing field to all. It may not be popular for those who want to run things their way but there are some of us who really don't want to be controlled by the Tea Party!! Change the politicians....but our government needs to remain in tact.

    The Tomb of The Unknown Soldier, Guards included, and the Cemetery, would remain unscathed. along with the Monuments, and the Whitehouse and, the Pentagon, those Buildings should survive, they would just all have a lot of job vacancies to be filled, and I would bet those who were sent as replacements, would have a whole New Attitude.

    I totally disagree....my bosses are greedy all by themselves and continually look for ways around Government laws. Which they are quite successful at. Their interest and their business associates operate from their own personal greed. Government does not have anything to do with their desire to succeed. It's more money, bigger houses, more expensive cars, etc.

    Redneck Lib -

    So you're saying people should NOT be entrepeneurs, take the risks financially, and aspire to succeed & improve their lifestyle?

    Typical Liberal.... gimmee what you got, you don't deserve it..... I do.

    I find your remarks to be coated with jealousy & YOU to be ungrateful for your job which is provided by your "greedy bosses". Do you realize that nearly 1/2 of America is unemployed or under-employed? You should be thanking your "greedy bosses". In Obama's economic hell you're lucky to have a job!

    LMAO That is not what I said at all. Entrepeneurs are essential for this country but it's all about how it is done. I've worked for my bosses for over 20 years. It's not jealousy at all. I do however, see how they purchase personal properties, go on expensive vacations, remodel their homes and cabins, buying expensive vehicles, jewelry and gifts, supporting their girlfriends (which their wives do not know about), even paying for their own dry cleaning, while writing them all off as a company expense. They decreased wages of the field employees, while increasing their own salaries by 500%. Their actions are not honorable, they are criminal. If I were jealous as you say, or vendictive, I would have turned the evidence over to the IRS years ago landing them both in jail. Instead I simply witness their actions and those of other business associates, knowing that business owners have severe character defects. I've been working on a payroll since I was 16 and babysat, housesat, petsat, for friends and neighbors long before that. I've never been on public assistance or even unemployment at anytime in my life. So stop with the gimmee BS because you don't have a clue of what you're talking about.

    Government is the only tool we have - particularly the American constitution, and the Bill of Rights - both following the Magna Carta.

    You don't abandon government - you have the balls to do the work the Founding Fathers EXPECTED you to do with the amazing tool they left us - work to overturn the Citizens United decision, and wrest our government out of the hands of the military industrialists, for whom war is great for business, and for whom the American worker, his family and his community are disposable commodities in the way of their profit margine.
