What does the US and England have to do with anything?

It's the Netherlands and Malaysia that are most directly harmed, and the US is merely voicing opinions on the matter. It's people from the Netherlands who are being kept from the bodies of their relatives. I don't recall the dutch shooting down any airliners.

All this focus on Iran Air is just blatant deflection.

You can vote for a different government. The fact that people aren't coming to bulldoze your house right now, is because people have voted for a government that does not allow it. It's not because of your personal fighting prowess.

Power is always gonna exist. All you are actually asking for is a change from one person, one vote, to one dollar, one vote.

Locationally smaller government just hands an advantage to those who can manipulate geographic legal differences, ranging from rich people easily capable of moving themselves and their assets around, to companies that can exist whereever they want instantly and perhaps simultaneously.

In comparison, poor people and smaller businesses suffer because they are unable to physically move, and so there is no actual inter-state competition for legislation that affects them. Thus, a race to the bottom is created where policy shifts to be extremely favourable to mobile populations and corporate entities, and extremely unfavourable to ordinary people.

Yeah, exactly. Ron Paul should answer this: why is it that those states that are fucking over Tesla also in general states run by the party he is a member of?

"Small government" is a slogan. Actual republican policy is to manipulate political power to favor their sponsors. Rand Paul is just a fig leaf for that.

unless you assumed the sewage was somehow radioactive

I was going to say that even that should be removed by distillation, and the water molecules shouldn't become radioactive, but now I'm not sure. Deuterium can capture neutrons to form radioactive tritium, but Wikipedia doesn't say if regular hydrogen can do the same to form deuterium.
