    Combine that with the plan for healthcare that's the best that dump can come up with, and we can get rid of a lot of republican voters very naturally.

    No social security. No public welfare. No big corporate farms providing a consistent supply of food. No public schooling beyond about 8th grade. No interstate highway system. No air/seaports. Greatly reduced interstate and international commerce. No real healthcare - illnesses and deaths were largely viewed as "God's will". A military that got by on state militias and the hunting rifles of soldiers. In short - a poorer, dumber, more rural population, that tended to die much younger. OK for 1817, not so great in 2017.

    But yeah, what have taxes ever done for society?
