Ever hear of a little thing called interstate commerce?
Cat out of bag.
Only works when the Federal government doesn't interfear in any form what so ever. When the government exists beyond protecting the nation from threats, and expanding trades...that's where the problems start. And that...is what we have now. And yes, it can be done without the taxes we run.
The game...is far from over. I'd suggest abit of reading from Adam Smith.
"For every human problem,
there is a neat, simple solution;
and it is always wrong."
