A list of thing about the UK. Some good, some bad. OK... mostly bad.
Some articles (facts) about the U.K.: 5 items
- UK is poorer than all the states - If the Britain were a State, it'd be poorer than any other state in the U.S. This is especially bad because Britain is the richest in the United Kingdom. This is based on US figures for GDP per state divided by population to come up with a GDP per capita figure -- then compare that to Britain (or the UK). Then add in the PPP (purchasing power parity) adjustments. Many people leave that last part out, but when you have a 20% VAT tax, it means that while your GDP might look fine, the actually purchasing power is far less. Do we really want to be more like them?
- 2019.04.01 Porn Block - Licensing is when the government takes your liberty away, and then sells/leases it back to you. Like the UK did with free Porn. For £4.99, you can buy a porn card (for each device), to allow you to watch free porn. Now they say it is for protecting the kids, but that's sort of the Parents job -- and since there will be a black market for those cards, it really won't stop them. Free speech and licensed speech are oxymorons.

The U.S. was created so that we the people could separate from a monarchy, self govern as a lot of local (State) democracies, with the minimum overarching federalism as possible. The EU was created to turn a bunch of separate little democracracies with autonomy into one unresponsive Brussels (or Berlin) run monarchy. It's not just that's the wrong idea... it's that they THINK they're doing what we did, when they're doing the exact opposite. We were created on individualism and limiting government power, and they are created on collectivism, centralization and maximize it.
