Time zone reform, now!

OinC, I'm glad to see we're almost on the same page, but going to one nationalized time zone only increases the power of the centralized goverment.

It's intelectually wrong, and also will make it just that much easier for Kofi and the UN to roll in someday and make us all live like the French.

I have to say, I think the true libertarian positon on this (not to mention conservatives, since I haven't been a conservative in months) is to decntralize and deregulate time zones, letting the free market decide. If consumers demand noon for six hours a day, then by God, that's what the stores will all say it is, and everyone will be the richer for it.

What do we want? Time zone reform! When do we want it? Now! And for a while!
