You don't need a truly untouched wilderness. Anywhere in Nature's End Boss Level(Australia) that isn't an outright settlement should serve the same purpose.

No. But people who don't pay taxes generally don't complain about them. See how that's relevant? On the whole, if you deported everyone who complained about paying taxes for infrastructure, you will reduce the number of people paying those taxes, but not reduce the number of people not paying them. At the risk of tossing some basic math theory at you, that means that the ratio of folks paying to folks benefiting will shrink, thus requiring either that more of the people left over start paying more in taxes *or* not having as much money for infrastructure relative to the people using it.

Quote:
AUGUSTA, Maine — Outgoing Maine Republican Party Chairman Charlie Webster plans to investigate claims that “dozens of black people” who were unfamiliar to municipal officials voted Nov. 6 in rural Maine towns.

There's a nice long interview with Charlie HERE if interested. The longer he talks the more revealing he gets.

I guess much like the polls all being oversampled, there's just no way that a Republican could lose an election if not for voter fraud.

I think it's also rather telling that the mayor expected the poll workers to know every single person in the town, when I'm sure there are parts of the town itself the mayor has never deemed to visit.

True if the set of people who paid most of the taxes complained about it. In reality, it's a very small fraction of whiny **** who complain about paying taxes (while using all the services, naturally). Most people with high tax loads understand it's an exchange. I pay more taxes than you, for instance. Likely orders of magnitude more, yet I accept the exchange for roads, police, fire services, etc. Someone who pays no taxes bothers me as much my neighbor benefiting from the shade of a tree I own. I'd assume you morons run out and demand he grow his own tree or compensate you.

Since he's now saying hundreds, he should have upgraded from "dozens" to "gross"

"Several gross of blacks arrived and voted!"

I wonder if any of these "invisible" black people in Maine will step forward and politely remind him that they've been a janitor in the city hall for the last ten years, or helped deliver his eldest son twenty years ago in the hospital...

Just because you don't pay attention to them, doesn't mean they haven't been there for a while.

Never been to Maine? While comical and racist, it would be beyond passing strange to see 10 black folks vote in The County. North of Bamgor, Maine is about 99.999995% white.

The alleged voter fraud would be probably be better used in a state in which every election didn't go Democratic (or Independent) by double-digits.

Well, I figured that much, but what about the single states? What would they become? Individual countries? I would assume that they would still US money. Would that increase or decrease the US dollar? I would assume that it would make it that much harder to pay back debt, then again, it may be less money that the government has to spend on people.

I guess the questions wouldn't stop. That would be a very interesting scenario.

They would become states, with state currencies, or, pending what sorts of fragmenting event, something else entirely.
