The reason we have ISIS is that we were in such a rush to leave IRAQ we didn't bother to finish stabilizing the situation.

Seeing as Vietnam has been mentioned, I'll point out the exact same thing happened there. The war was brought to an acceptable conclusion and we pulled out before stability had been achieved. The cost that time was 4million dead Vietnamese and Cambodians. What do you think it will be this time around ?

Also I would be very careful what you wish for here. Anybody who doesn't have the capital or desire to become a participating entity could be screwed over royally here.

It would be far better to take patent trials away from juries. Picking people at random and then pointing them at highly technical patents isn't something that even sounds like it might work.

The 46 red states all require utilities to give a 1 to 1 credit for electricity usage, and have to buy up to the limit for each of the states.

Either you work in the utility industry in a different country or one of the 4 states that hasn't adopted the rules you are talking about.
