Our nation went back to the original campaigning environment where, because of the spread of the population and a relative isolation because modern transportation and communication weren’t around yet, the funds for campaigning were limited to local funding within the electoral jurisdiction and the selection of campaigners was a local decision?
Albert Einstein said we can’t go back.
What if credit cards didn’t exist and the local economy depended on cash, check and local bank financing? Would giant retail mega-corporations exist?
Albert said we can’t go back.
What if the amount of income from any source was subject to an upper limit beyond which federal taxes would be 100 percent? FDR did it.
But Albert just chuckled.
What if unions were pervasive enough to restore full-time, corporate guaranteed retirement and full medical benefits?
Albert said nope.
What if the entire education industry had been able to keep up with inflation like the universities did?
Stop this says Albert. The laws of physics say that under certain conditions it may be possible to leap into the future but going back in time is not possible.
Anyone care to peek into the future?
