I've been thinking. Libertarianism is a great way to live. Making yourself independent and making your own way. There is one thing I see that I have a problem with. It is only a valid idea if we go to a creche system of living. Every child given a completely new start. Where your determination matters. Until then. Your way won't work. It will only allow the rich to get richer and the poor to get poorer till the poor finally die out then a new cycle of poor will come. If we close the gap that has formed now we will have shorter cycles and hopefully, no cycles at all. It will soon approach 0. We don't have to pander the stupid and unwilling. Those people will die out and cause their own problems. We need to inspire the ones who will work(great line I thought while writing this "inspire the Insipid"). You dig?

Libertarianism FTW! Imagine if everyone started from zero, and started working towards common benefit: You would help building a nuclear power plant, or a dam, or a new computer design not for personal profit and material gain, but for the common good. It makes perfect sense, as we are born naked and die without taking anything with us. Leaving the material wealth behind and working toward the common humanity wealth. Imagine the cultural, technological and scientific progress we could achieve each generation.

The founding fathers of the USA believed that each individual had the god given right to be free. That means free to fail as well as free to succeed. The right to your life and the production thereof. No where in our constitution is there a concept of taking from one class of people to give to another, what our liberal statist friends love so much, redistribution of wealth.

Why do you support the fair tax then if thats all it is? IT isn't a system to reduce or kill taxes but another system to redistribute wealth. You want a system like that read snowcrash. You are free to live or die on your own with no government support. Though theres no one to help you anyways.

The founding fathers endorsed slavery. So much for those universal freedom fighters.

I support the FairTax because it takes the federal government OUT of my life. They have NO business knowing where I work or how much money I make, the income tax is an invasion of my privacy. The FairTax abolishes the IRS and the income tax.

Legal schmegal, slaves were conveniently labeled as soulless animals, as exploitable as a horse or dog. Only idiots could not see that sñaves were human beings too, not some kind of talking, rational apes. People knew it was immoral, but it was expensive to let go of them.

I'm highly suspicious of libertarians, because I notice they're almost always old white men with money. What's in it for me, boys?

Political affiliations in the US seem to be divided in a hateful way, with a strong 'them and us' mentality. I don't care what parties have done in the past or who you vote for, only how well their manifesto matches my own beliefs at the time of an election.
