As Ayn Rand said in "Atlas Shrugged":
The Constitution of the U.S. needs a new amendment, such as, "Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of production and trade …" [as stated by Judge Narragansett]
This means not only the removal of 90% of the current laws that control, regulate and hamper production and trade, but also means stopping all taxation, since taxation distorts various trade and production. All that is being argued about by Fast Eddie, is whose ox gets gored amongst all the citizens who get taken to the cleaners by the Fed, State and local governments -- not about fundamental move towards a free society that would release the immense power of human productivity to make life on earth a better place than it currently is.
