These limitations made it impossible to trade with another country were the product was cheaper than the United States one. By this, no matter the price, if it was high or low, Puerto Rico could only trade with the United States. This situation violates a right which is “That all men are created equal” (Jefferson 236) because if the United States can trade with a bunch of countries, why can Puerto Rico also trade with other
Roughly 600,000 people live in the area, they pay taxes and serve in the US military do not get representation. Nearly 70% of Americans say the government today is worse than intended, Also the US Constitution can cause gridlock within the Federal Government, because it gives too much power to those who oppose change and 58% of Americans say they would like to see more bipartisanship. Difference in political ideology means that gridlock is caused by the checks and balances in the constitution. This means that laws which really need to be passed or sensible laws which are against one parties ideology or certain senators can't get passed, for example Obama's gun background check laws cannot be voted in due to gridlock caused by republicans and some democrats.

The distribution was worse off than it ever was. Too much of the wealth was in the hands of too few people and so Long introduced the ‘big fortune cut’. Mr. Long’s first of six proposals was his most significant proposing that every big fortune be cut. He states “every big fortune shall be cut down immediately by a capital levy tax to where no one will own more than a few million dollars…shall go into the United States ownership.” This proposal prevents one from owning excess fortunes of up to three to four million dollars and gives the surplus to the United States, the government. In order to get this excess, questionnaires of the ownership of properties such as lands and houses, stocks and bonds, and factories and patents are sent to everyone.

All this cost about 90 million pounds and only 42.2% of citizens turned up to vote, this is an atrocity and the direct reason why referendums cannot be justified by say the state wants the citizens to get involved as most of them do not. However referendum can be used to reunite two divided parties when they
He points out that as the nation progresses through time the liberty of the people decreases. His primary example is the social security acts. He notes that the concept of social security, insuring that you will have money when you are retired, was an upfront lie. It is a lie because the money taken out of your weekly paycheck for social security is not going to an account for you and your retirement. In addition to making it clear that social security is a lie but he also emphasizes that it is also a failing system.
