Witkov's Modest Proposal
"Many American today believe certain illegal vices in our society should be decriminalized, taxed, and regulated. The most popular of these vices include marijuana smoking, prostitution, and all forms of gambling. ... Unfortunately, when it comes to lowering taxes and helping the downtrodden, the best-laid government plans seem to fall short of expectations. However, there is one vice, one small illegal indiscretion, that, if decriminalized would solve all our problems. The [US] needs to decriminalize the victimless crime known as counterfeiting. ... Universal counterfeiting could be the entitlement program that ends all other entitlement programs and sets us free", Harold Witkov (HW), 22 May 2009 at http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/05/time_to_legalize_counterfeitin_1.html.
Welcome aboard HW, I first suggested this about 25 years ago. Positively Swiftian.
