spelletrader: would love to see a Libertarian convention, it would be a week of solid laughs.

I think it would be awesome seeing the attendees organizing themselves in the stands. I mean, how cool is that?

You know, the more I read up on the policy positions of Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed, I gotta say he seems a pretty reasonable alternative to Romney. I mean, first off, he isn't Mormon.

Koalacaust: However, I think it's important to remember that the people in government are just as capable of being selfish, corrupt assholes as the guys on Wall Street.

The main benefit (and drawback) of government workers is that people's asshole nature isn't guided by fiduciary responsibilities.

RanDomino: Being repeatedly invaded and subjugated by foreign empires over the course of hundreds of years has nothing to do with the breakdown in society, I'm sure. Nope, they're just incapable of cooperation... probably because of genetics.

I don't mean to alarm you, but you might be a moron.

Vegan Meat Popsicle: If they want overall freedom from government... well, then, yea, it's pretty much disease-filled shiatholes like Somalia because when people refuse to work together that's what the region turns into: a disease-filled shiathole.

But they are able to use phosphorous in their dish soap!

mikemoto: Yes subby, because anarchy and limited government are EXACTLY the same thing.

Libertarians are anarchists who want the police to protect them from their slaves.

Libertarianism would only work if they had control of the entire government. And by "work", I mean it would not achieve a single goal otherwise. I think that if they ever took over the Government we would have to move to Canada because the US would cease to be a functioning entity.
