I do like the name Lapinot so much better than Scooter.  The only person I every knew named scooter was also the first chick I ever did in a moving car, though not the first in any car.  Her brother was driving, actually.  (You might be a redneck if...)  Everytime I head the name scooter I thought about that sordid experience.  Now I only have to hear it on the nightly news, but not on this forum.

Oh, and I vote no.  I don't want US imperialism to create One World Government, nor do I want some other empire making us part of theirs, and frankly I think that having nation states who live side-by-side, in peace, suits me just fine.

misspent youth, to be sure.

anyway, I still don't want or need One World government.  There are only two ways to do that:  Let the US take over the world or Let the World take over the US.  The amount of taxes it costs to grow the empire to that extent is too much of a burden.  In fact, I think we have already bitten off as much as we can chew, proverbially speaking.  And the other alternative seems just as offensive.  Do you really want some Sudanese slave-trading overlord making your laws?  Or how about Supreme Court Chief Justice Pol Pot?  No thanks.
