Politics is a Dangerous and Destructive Game; why are we playing it?

Too many people are seeking the power to be able to Force and control others. Too many people are willing to compromise their integrity and lives for the power to Force others. Too many people are willing to join in the collusion of Force instead of fighting against it. Too many people want to control by Force how much money you make and how much money you contribute to government. Too many people want to control by Force, how you build your home. Too many people want to control by Force who you use for your Doctor, Dentist, Attorney, General Contractor, Realtor, Hairdresser, etc. etc. etc. Too many people want to control by Force what substances you put in your body for both health and pleasure. Too many people want to control by Force who you have sex with and if you want to pay them or not. Too many people want to control by Force if you want to bring a child into this very dangerous and destructive world, if you become pregnant. To many people want to control by Force who pays for the child when one is born. Too many people even want to control by Force what types of money we use. Too many people want to control your actions by Force, before you ever create an eminent danger. Too many people want to control your actions by Force, without understanding all aspects of the law and its ramification. Too many people want to control by Force who you give your money to and how they spend it. Too many people want to control by Force how you protect yourself from both criminals and the tyranny of oppressive government. Too many people want to control what weapons you have and want to carry on you by Force to protect yourself. Too many people are willing to use the money government takes from you by Force to wage war for monetary profits and controls. There are too many people willing to manipulate and subvert by Force, honest voting systems and manipulate the counting of the votes. I could keep going but I think you get the point.
Too many people want to legally have government take money from you by Force to pay for what they think are good ideas of which common sense tell us otherwise. All these uses of Force require your money and there are just too many people who are willing to take your money from you without your consent. Of course there are those that are willing to represent you but really believe that they know better than you “what is in you and your neighbors best interest. There are those (politicians, predominantly attorneys) that we know from their history of voting that they are lying to us about what they will and can do. Are they really too stupid to know what laws they can or cannot get passed through the legislative process yet they still lie to us about doing so? We have the very same problems today as we had 50 years ago and many are even worse now.
I recently heard someone say, that we need to replace all federal agencies with the Department of Common Sense. Could this really be any worse than what we have? For the “Bureaucrats” in these various Agencies, it would not be so great, but for the majority it would be a great coup. We would be able to significant reduce taxation and the cost of government.
However one thing that is necessary and a grave concern is that we are now in a dilemma of having so much government debt that even if we eliminated all of the Federal Government, including the military, the revenues still are less than the interest and unfunded liabilities. Therefore we must restructure our debt with the various creators around the world, most of them governments, or we will face masses levels of inflation in the near future, if we continue to print money instead of actually solving the problems of excessive government, taxation and regulation
Our society has used the power to tax so high and so long we have bankrupted ourselves, by various taxation and regulatory enactments. This is nothing new, as each generation attempts to play the same game, with the same or typically worse results. Each Administrations expenses and deficits are generally larger than the last. After 235 years, many within the majority are no better off today than those who lived under King George. Those who think that an economic collapse cannot happen to this country do not know the history of fiat currency nor have studies the economic cycles of nations. Those that are well off now can be without a job and without a potential income overnight, allowing them to experience what many in the private sector have experienced over the last 5 or 6 years.
The use of Force has not worked. It is a dangerous and destructive game and we have now seen and have the empirical data to show the negative ramifications of a system that uses it. One group, no matter how it is organized or formed, cannot be allowed to use Force against honest Citizens, or we will continue on this most dangerous and destructive path for all eternity.
In the movie, WarGames (1983), the Norad based computer named Joshua, finally figures out, at the very last moment, that the only way to win, is to not play the game. When are we going to learn that politics is a game that cannot be won, because it must utilize the legalization of Force against honest Citizens. How can a form of slavery, whether it be physical or economic, provide the foundation of an ethical and prosperous society.
Every form of government so far conceived by mankind has failed in almost every conceivable form of death and destruction. We build our world only to destroy it and kill one another fighting for the power to use Force. It is the Force of government that should be destroyed before it ends up destroying all of us.
