    Honduras has given permission to a private city to do a conservative experiment. They will be having minimum taxes, government and regulations to see the economic growth it provides. Funny though because I thought that experiment was already done in America of the past and states that implement those policies like Texas that are doing better. At the end of the day, you can provide all the evidence in the world but the big government people will never want to believe it. Thinking about heading there myself and I’m keeping a close eye on this.

    They will do fine until the freeloaders move in and vote themselves the other guy's money.

    Honduras is a very welcoming city to Americans that want to come and bring jobs.

    Honduras is the country that threw out the communist dictator who declared himself president for life. Come to think of it, he won his election too. obama supported Zeyala in his claim of lifetime presidency saying he was freely elected. At least the last time there was an election.

    It would be cheaper to buy a copy of SimCity.

    Like I said big government idiots will never see it. You see there is this false belief among your brethren that somewhere there is this wonderful place where big government has saved people for poverty. That some country out there has equality for all and greed does not exist. Can you tell us where this place is and if the place indeed does not exist then what type of government are you talking about are better forms of government than a free capitalist society? Sure there are those that fall through the cracks but they fall through the cracks regardless of what form of government there is. There will always be the poor and the rich regardless of what you do so to sit there and pretend and talk like there is some place where all are equal and there are not the rich or poor people is a lie. If your definition of utopia is a place where people don’t starve but have nothing, then I’m going to bet there are a lot of people who are not going to agree with you that is a utopia. The greatest thing about free capitalism is at least everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed from birth. Sure some people are dealt different cards so not all are playing with the same deck but there is nothing there to prevent you from the possibility of success. This is not the case for a big government society. And if you want to see the experiments here in the United States in the 1900 that failed one after another here you go:
