30. Honestly I wasn't meaning to rib you, I thought you were serious.
But speaking of serious, that kind of proposal is much closer to economic servitude than anything else! There is no real obstacle to anyone who wants to grow or hunt their own food right now (although to be fair it would require a very large hunk of one's time.) But depending on the gov't to provide sustenance (and presumably granting them the right to tell you -what- in addition to how much) would be a one-way trip to absolute totalitarianism. :scared:
