That is a prescription for fascism. In fact, making decisions based on cost-benefit is already the system we have in place. It is exactly why NOTHING gets cut! It certainly has nothing to do with liberty.
It isn't about that to me. I don't trust the douche and think his whole cost/benefit talking point/plan just furthers us down the road to fascism. I find it disgusting from a liberty pov. I think if he was president, his limp wristed approach would have him signing off on whatever any warmonger or powerbroker told him was best.
My local grocery recently started carrying organic, raw, unfiltered, unpasteurized red wine vinegar with mother. And it is damn good stuff for salad dressing.
If you see it, I recommend giving it a try.
Meh, it may sound like it involves restraint when spoken beforehand but in practice I think you would find that ends up with no restraints whatsoever. If anything we already have a cost/benefit approach in place and the costs of losing liberty always loses the argument.
Outside the US it isn't unheard of. Some CFR members proposed exactly such a thing back on our bicentennial when they put together recommendations for changing the US constitution.
AS to the topic, the LP, the new party of Jeb and Mitt, lol yeah that sounds just about right.
This is a bit offtopic, but what the hell; do any of you know if public school districts get increased funding or special grants based on their graduation rate? ie: if they have a high graduation rate, they get more money?
I've been racially profiled as well for being white in black neighborhoods. I've gotten pulled over simply because the cops thought I was in the area to buy drugs. I didn't get butthurt or make speeches about it though. I was just thankful that I hadn't bought any yet.
