The Louisiana government has passed a law in which the use of cash is banned in transactions involving used or secondhand goods. The law is broad enough to cover a lot of things, and it is also completely illegal because it violates legal tender laws. The politicians who brought this law into being should immediately be fired. This would represent true 'checks and balances', rather than the farce that exists today. I assuming that a judge will strike this law down, probably after some middle class housewife gets busted for having one too many garage sales, though relying on a judge to have his head screwed on straight doesn't fit my idea of good risk assessment.
We are a nation run by lawyers. They make laws for the express purpose of sustaining their own class. They don't even care if the law is unconstitutional- the mere process of contesting the law generates more work for lawyers. Nothing that adds to the ever growing mass is ever checked or balanced.
This is the sort of legislation that proves simply, and without doubt, that the people in office who approved of this bill are incompetent for their job. There is an outside possibility they may just be evil, but I will be charitable and assume they are just too stupid. Either way, they are not fit for office and should be fired immediately.
Elections, as we have seen countless times before won't work. Indeed, we appear to be getting increasingly less intelligent candidates and are running into politicians passing illegal legislation precisely because they don't comprehend anything, rather than what we used to have when intelligent leftists were running around intentionally trying to subvert everything. Now we get both the left and the right passing ridiculous things with out having a clue, and we still have the odd intelligent leftist, though I think many of them pose as professors and subvert good governance by giving insidious advice to idiot politicians.
