    I've advocated the Swiss canton system for years now. The country is too large with too many different interests.

    I'm not. I just grow weary from your short posts that contain no meaningful content. I agree with you on almost everything, but you are one of the worst posters in this forum. You're a boring, anti-intellectual, inarticulate bitch. Straight up.

    Decentralized. When I lived in Europe from what I understood , the Swiss didn't even know who their president or chancellor or whatever their leader was. Basically there's free trade among the cantons but they're fairly autonomous.
    An example: The second amendment wouldn't apply to the whole country. Texas might have liberal gun rights while guns may be totally outlawed in Washington state.

    Right. And some people think the states in our country should operate that way.

    That leaves 1/3rd of the voters to go out and vote next time that you may recruit from.

    The most important referendum in the 2022 election must be DEMOCRACY itself!

    If you truly want it- you have to go vote for it next time or it may be the last time you can ever vote again!
    that 1/3rd is probably totally disillusioned with the version of democracy that you liberals and conservatives have foisted upon us............so what do you propose to regain their interest in anything other than being prepared to kill you all when you try to force more of your unconstitutional evil upon us?
    In a combat situation it is about 16 times better to do something useful and violent right away than to wait and figure out something even more useful and violent later.
