Actually, that appears to be what you're
doing. "Absence of government" is the first definition, and yours is the 2nd or 3rd down the list. hmmm.
Given that we don't have anything close to a utopian society ( and aren't even on track to acheiving that ) I don't think that's the closest definition to the subject.
So the definition is invalid because we don't have a utopia now? There is a little thing called abstract thinking you might want to try.
And if you think that just removing the government will get us there I'm going to have a good laugh!
Strawman. He didn't claim that....you just made it up.

trumpt writes opinions that he bases on facts. This board is a place to post and discuss those opinions. You seem free to write yours, so why can he not?
Also why do you refuse to look at where this all started? Oh! That's right. It's in the past so it doesn't count ( it only counts if it's a democrat ).
Yes, let's do that. Where did it start, jimmac?
Also I've stated repeatedly that I'm not pleased with everything Obama's doing but he's still better than the Greedy Ol' Party.
Excellent. Let's have a list of things you don't like, and reasons for them.
And trumpy lots of people were saying this was a really bad problem from the start ( before Obama ). The worst since the Great Depression ( I don't know how you could compare it to something worse ) and yet those in control weren't listening then.
Which people? How does that support your argument? Also, I think you have no idea
how bad it actually was and is. It's far worse than the GD in many ways.
And you know 8 years of stupid mistakes back in the first decade of this century is pretty long period of time also.
Yes, yes...it's all Bush and the GOP. See, their WARS were the problem. Never mind that Barney Frank and company ignored the Bush Administration's warnings on the mortgage industry. Never mind that Senate and House Dems resisted mortgage industry reform at every turn. Never mind that the Feds started pushing banks around under Clinton, forcing them to make low income and no doc loans. Just ignore all of that, and blame it on one party. It's much easier for you that way.
My criticism of Bush is well documented. Perhaps you could provide some quotes for yours.
Uh, yeah...because you don't support him. How about some criticism of Obama? By the way, trump DID provide documentation.
And how about something while he was in office if you're looking for them.
And what are you offering as an alternative? Republicans? They got us into this in the first place. MJ's 3rd party that can't win? So what do you offer as an alternative trunptman?
Better than what we have. 9% unemployment, near-stagnant growth, huge deficits, 3 wars, coming and massive inflation.

Oh, he'll ignore it or dismiss it. He's blindly partisan. jimmac does not support parties because of their positions.
He supports the Democratic party because he's a Democrat.
Instead of reasons for voting one way or the other, he finds justification
after the fact.
