National, State and Local Laws: Understanding the Game

So often folks starting out do not understand the game and all the laws, which they must deal with. Today we have an abundance of laws and duplications in law at all levels of our government. These laws are in place so that we can run a cohesive society and civilization. Indeed it appears to be working quite well, as today it is hard to dispute that the United States of America is by far the greatest nation in the history of mankind.

Is there too much redundancy in our laws in the United States of America? Surely there is and few would deny that. The real problem is not with duplication, but rather multiple jurisdictions with slightly different rules on the books making it tough on citizens, land-owners and businesses both large and small. What can we do to fix these issues?

Well, perhaps we need to sit down amongst ourselves and stop acting like the United Countries and start acting like the United States that we are. In doing so it might be wise to have a similar set of laws which make doing business, traveling or anything else relatively simple. Maybe a red magic marker committee might be a great idea and line out those laws, which are overly redundant or simply no longer make sense. Simplicity will save us from this maze of laws, if we allow it. Consider all this in 2006.
