If you could enact one new law, what would it be?

The law of no laws. All laws be banished and not be able to be brought back forever. That would be the best one :D

Your getting the two mixed up with each other, me thinks. Look around you; do you still not see these things occurring? Don't let them fool you into thinking, that without laws, things will just go bananers. Laws actually cause more problems than they solve. People don't need laws; they need understanding, knowledge and unifications.

No, people still do those thing, but if they are caught they are punished for them. With no laws there would be no punishment, and knowing there were no punishment would make more people do whatever bad thing they want to. I'll admit, if I could not be punished for theft I'd be happy to walk into a store and take whatever I wanted for nothing.

It may seem so, off of the start. But, things would balance off pretty fast. People would realize if they deliberately attacked another, they would more than likely be attacked by the people who they attacked; same with stealing. If people would realize that we are all connected as a single thing, we would realize that by harming another, we are actually harming ourselves; people would co-operate much better then.For example, if you secretly made someone angry, that person would pass the anger on to someone else, and so on; soon enough, that anger would come right back to you.

It would be a moratorium on any new laws. We already have more laws than any person in this country can reasonably live by. And every day, local state and the federal government keep adding more, most of which they have no business regulating. This is especially true at the federal level. I am not an anarchist, society must have some law and governance. However, it has gone beyond absurd in the level of both.

I'm with you on that brother. A good portion of these laws jeopardize our freedoms, and only help those who make them.

Seems like no new laws (or no laws at all) is a common answer to this question.

lol, you noticed that huh. Well, think about it. Do we really need to keep adding laws to the books the way we have been? As I said, I am not an anarchist and society must have some laws to live by, but eesh...it's gotten ridiculous.

No new laws? But in particular? that government would be severely limited in power, by putting most things in the hands of the states, no federal blanket laws.. except murder, and the basics of fraud and robbery.. as far as what we eat, drink, smoke or not smoke or where, or any number of other regulations, taxation(s) and limitations upon the people, m arriage and small business penalties.. forget it. The constitution was not written to limit the people's rights, but to limit government rights and power/influence.

I agree that states should have more, if not total, control of themselves. You can't know what is best for a certain place if you've never even visited there, most less have never lived there for any length of time.

Very simply - All people are created equal. If a law is created, it applies to EVERYBODY. No hate crimes, if you kill somebody, you kill them. The government is NEVER exempt from the laws they make. No waivers. Nobody is above the law.
