What would be the worst result in each form of Government in it's unfettered extreme?
OK, Republican Conservatism in it's most extreme form would be extremely capitalist with little regulations. There would be much less social programs for the poor and "needy" and unemployed (however, there are statistics that show people give to charity allot more when not already taxed to pay for the same purpose) Now here is the problem. This could be an incredibly rich country that is able to keep a large majority of it's citizens employed.(Which it was, before certain taxation policies and gangster unions pushed many corporations and companies overseas and other more tax friendly states. Call it "greed", but this is business when they are pushed against a wall) However it is NOT rich, then we have the problem of unemployment. However, this would be the case in any form of government, except instead of taking taxes that could build more companies capable of employing people, we would be taxing companies and giving it away to the unemployed,A very short term solution. Also, let's not pretend Republicans do not engage in any social services what-so-ever. (Obviously, I am Republican leaning toward Libertarian and constitutionalism) Leftist Democrat- Government and corporation jobs available for anybody who is ambitious enough and put forth the effort early in life to achieve this goal. However, if he/she doesn't take this opportunity, then the the government has a plethora of social programs from everything from unemployment right down to SSI and everything in between. MANY of which are abused. Not all, but enough for MUCH stricter criteria to be set. Example- I should NOT be able to get SSI or welfare because of a prior heroin addiction. That sounds like a reward. But I know many who get this for that reason. The term "Oh, you can get a check for dat'" is getting to be ridiculous. Getting money from the government USED to be something to be ashamed about. That seems to be gone. And so is the motivation to WORK for an honest living. Also, Unions- They had their part in their time. Now they have abused their position and pushing jobs overseas. Also, High Taxes- Also pushing jobs overseas as well as to other parts of USA where taxes are cheaper. Look at New York. What sound businessman would open up a business in a state that they will make 10% LESS just due to taxes?! Why does government not see these problems. Because they are too obsesses with keeping their base and pandering with their social programs at the expense of the countries downfall. Also- LAws on top of laws on top of laws- Liberals are legislation crazy. There seems to be NO end to when or IF they will ever stop their "well intentioned" legislation. But you know where the road paved with good intentions lead..other than the poor house and a inevitably a land where government rules all if it continues this way. And I see NO signs of it slowing down, let alone stopping. (I know libs don't like to hear it, but communism was and is a failure, and as much as Leftists pump up socialized Europe, it is for all intents and purposes stagnant with no signs of an upturn w/o drastic governmental reform. FACT. Oh, and w/o BS meaningless "standard of living" rhetoric) Libertarianism- Now, Libertarianism is a little harder to explain since it has several sect. Right-leaning, left leaning, and though many will disagree anarchism. But one thing they all have in common is a small role for government except for essential roles such as military defense, police, etc. In my opinion, the founding fathers created an excellent country that left little room for improvement. (with exception of slavery, woman's suffrage, and REAL examples of civil rights violations, not victims agenda "civil rights which is all the fashion now a days) I am not insisting there is NO room for new laws or government, BUT there need to be far less government. ALso, there needs to be a stop put to every single event that a useless law could be written for. Because, let's face it. At least 60/70% of ALL new laws are designed as some type of new revenue source to pay for some new social policy that was outdated and useless before it ever passed. These social policies help no one except in the short term...and that is ONLY for people who ACTUALLY intend on returning to work. Invalids and people who CAN"T work are a different story. Obviously this is extremely inadequate. So I am sure you will add your own arguments. But let me ask you this question. If, left completely unfettered, to it's own values, morality, and ideology, which form of Government do you think will be most prosperous in say 200 years. Maybe that is too optimistic. Which ones, if any, actually have a chance of SURVIVING into the future?

They all tend to the extreme over time and ultimately they all fail. You just can't have a state. Small government sounds nice but it cannot be sustained or at least it never has historically. It continuously grows in size and power and the ability for a given individual to have any impact diminishes every step of the... More
