Does Brexit spell the end of the UK as we know it?

IrishEconomist
UnspeakableRebel

I believe that the British government rushed the arguments for and against the UK leaving the EU. The national debate was too short, and the electorate really didn't get a chance to properly weigh up the consequences of their decision. Scotland and Northern Ireland opted to stay in the EU, and the Welsh vote was close. I believe that if the UK gets a poor deal from the EU, it will dissolve like a disprin and the pain will be felt by the man on the street....

Taxes should be wealth-based, not income-based

Consider a homeless person. Does he need a fire department? He"s living in a box, even if it got burnt up he can still find a new one. Does he need police protection? He has nothing on him worthy to be stolen, and any fights that he gets into are over before the police show up. What about the public transport system, or education? He would not be able to pay for these basic services, he might not even be able to get a decent meal. And what about the wealthy? They've got cars that might be sto...

The 2nd Amendment states that "A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.", I do believe it could be changed. The world today is full of craziness so allowing anyone to walk around with bear arms isn't a safe decision. Personally, for me I feel as though you shouldn't be allowed Bear Arms unless you have a registration or license for the gun itself; People such as "Gang Members" only want to ha...

Money is everything?

I've just come from having my dinner from my family where someone decided to talk about the water, electricity and phone bills (much to my delight), but then all of a sudden I got so annoyed at the fact that we HAVE to pay for water bills and electricity bills. We live in a world where we have to pay for pretty much everything, when someone tells me money doesn't matter , I reply by saying ; truth be told it does, money is what gets you food on the table, money is how you buy a house with, money...
