    Public schools raise a number of issues not necessarily related to separatism.

    Primarily, the creation of public schools created an apparently free good, a quasi-monopoly, and compelled funding via taxation. This destroyed the market for education services and incentives to improve. The reactions described are people who care coping with the lack of choice imposed by public school laws.

    What is needed are more political parties instead of two – Republicans and the Democrats. The divide between the two is like the great chasm of the Pacific Ocean. The more parties the lesser the intensity of the differences in opinion and the better management of the country.

    I love revisionist history. The civil war was about taxes. Lets cut to the chase. I don’t support or believe in any kind of slavery, economic slavery being one of the forms of slavery I am specifically against.

    All one has to do is research a Private Express Trust and you will immediately learn how the elites have been sidestepping taxes and laws for centuries. This is not rocket science or anything new. It is smart. They still pay plenty of taxes and the jobs they create are worth way more than the taxes they are sidestepping.

    National sales tax is a much better solution, especially the recent one presented by the GOP where everyone would receive a rebate check each month in the mail. Effectively allowing lower income earners to not pay taxes at all and potentially get a distribution that would enable to have a better lifestyle.

    The main issue is no one wants the sane and effective solutions because they were always presented by the other side. Polarization of the population on hot button topics is pointless and only serves to divide the nation. Why are we even having these conversations? We have different states for a reason. I don’t know why we need to have two federal governments. Why not just have strong states rights and get the feds out of our business? We literally already have the perfect solution but no one seems to get it. So sad.
