if only a million people out of 300 million managed to organize and march on DC the national guard would run away.
we could throw all the traitors there in a cage, abolish the income tax and the fed.
Bullshit.

Don't bring a gun to a drone fight.

the people who fly and maintain those drones are the same people the government robs with forced taxes, i wouldn't be so sure that the drones will be on the government side.

Paying Taxes is the reason we are getting Health services, Law enforcement, Clean streets and parks, Great Infrastructure.

Government need money to provide us a better place to live that's why they force us to pay taxes.

who said i want their health services, law enforcement and parks.
if ill want a park ill pay someone to build a park, what right do they have forcing me to buy stuff they think i need.

Because if for X reasons you lose your wealth and you become old and shit on your bedclothes, they can help you with the taxed money. It's called socialism aka common sense.

how about i'll buy my own insurance against that instead of them shoving it down my throat.

the only reason this works is because the citizens are unorganized and unarmed.
if people gather in groups of tens of people to protect each other against the government there is no way they could throw anyone in jail.

Well then they would probably make an example of a few to intimidate the rest.

how will they do that if they have a million armed people marching on their jail.
there are millions of us and only a few thousand of them, its insane that people haven't gathered up and thrown those government thugs in a cage yet.

It has happened many times in history.
Those people then form a new government which, in time, turns out to be pretty similar to the old one.

the solution to this problem is the same solution bitcoin implements for the monetary system, power must be distributed.
there must not be a monopoly on the use of force given to any group of people.

This.

You have to remeber 999/1000 people LOVE, LOVE LOVE being slaves and being told what to do.. LOVE it.  They would do anything the gov tells them to and go on about how amazing it is.  Being a slave is easy and simple being free is hard work, many people are lazy and love being slaves and not having to think or defend themselves.

What are you bubbling about? The US National Guard and US Military and the Police are payed entirely with tax dollars, and the Military Industrial Complex is the most politically influential group on the planet. For them "taxes" is more akin to "Customer Relations".

im sure that if i told the guy who maintains the drone that should he forget to tighten those screws he will never have to pay taxes to any government thugs again he won't mind.
he can always get a job at a civilian company.

sure, because only the government can heal a toothache.
let me tell you a secret, the doctor who takes care of you does not work for the government, in fact he wouldn't have to charge as much money if he didn't have to pay the free loader bureaucrats in the government their protection money.

So how many percent of those do you think have to join your putsch for it to have a 50% chance of success? I'll assume it has to be much higher than in the general population, right?

why is it ok for a group of people calling themselves the government to force everyone to buy their services?
if enough armed people refused to pay and told the government to go fuck itself there is nothing they could do.

The government can jail you, be careful Smiley

I have spent a lot of time in the most impoverished places in the world. There are no dentists or doctors. Why? because there is only the strong and the weak. Any attempt to be a doctor would just get you kidnapped and held treating soldiers. I mean, why should I not keep a slave doctor?

If you lived in such a place you could not afford a dentist anyway. You would spend your time doing whatever the local warlord says you will do. No choices, no opportunity, just a lifetime of fear and poverty. That's what it's like, and I never met a person in a place like that who liked it.

It is views like this as to why big gov runs our slave lives.
People believe some how having a gov makes your country super rich and not having one makes it shitty ghetto place..
As I said people are super lazy and love not haivng to do anything and being told what do do... look at this guy..  Most people love being a slave.

the reason there are messed up places like that is not because of lack of government, its because of the mentality of the people there.
if they form a government it will be even worse then the situation where the warlords don't have a monopoly on military power.

America would not turn into a place like that should the government disappear, because the ethics of the people are different.
people in America generally respect the non aggression principle.

Some of the taxes are good. They make or maintain roads, they pay your medic (in some countries) of that.

The problem is the amount of those taxes and the way they are used. Because the "government" pays the "law enforcement" from our money to punish us if we don't pay those taxes.
But since the beginning of "civilization" the rich asked money from the poor and paid the "police" to protect them (yes only the rich) from the others.

The government will not change the "law" i.e the current way the county works because it would be against their benefit.



The solution is a completely new form of government - which needs a clean / correct philosophy and a (global?) revolution. How achievable you think is that?

Gov use our tax money is for building the whole country ( but you know and we know about corrupt in our gov )
Like highway , shelter , military etc.
i hate to say about this , but yes we have to agree pay taxes.

Corruption, embezzlement, fraud, these are all characteristics which exist everywhere.
It is regrettably the way human nature functions, whether we like it or not.
What successful economies do is keep it to a minimum. No one has ever eliminated any of that stuff.

the government doesn't do anything, it takes money from you and buys highways and weapons from private companies.
why not cut the middle man and just buy our own roads from the same companies?
why should the government even decide we need a new road, maybe we already have enough roads, why are we allowing them to force us to pay for things they say we need?

even if none of them join the drones won't stop a mass of a million people, how many drones do you think they have.
once the central bank is under control and the pay checks to the army stop arriving its game over.

That depends on who you think they are. http://www.theguardian.com/news/datablog/2012/aug/03/drone-stocks-by-country#
According to this the US has 678, and the Air National Guard 42 MQ-1B Predator and 14 MQ-9 Reaper. And that was over two years ago.
THEY also have not only drones but tanks, ships, u-boots and a bunch of riot cops/soldiers who will tear gas you not because they are payed to do so but because you are the "traitor".

even if none of the cops and soldiers (who are not exactly being paid top dollar and may actually agree that the government has become totalitarian, violated the constitution, and must be stopped) join up its still not enough to stop an army of a million people who are already inside the country and are flooding into the New York FED and DC.
there is no way to stop such a blitzkrieg except by committing suicide and nuking New York.
