    Record Pork Barrel Spending.

    I've been pretty busy lately and haven't actually browsed the forums in forever. All I've been doing is responding to posts because I get alerted via email. I'll look up some of the issues around and see about responding some more.....

    Record Pork Barrel Spending.

    First of all, the Supreme Court knew it was unconstitutional. If anyone knows our Constitution best, it's them. Here is what I know about it: -Social Security was stealing from me to give to you. That's not respecting my property rights at all. -FDR took us off the gold standard, which gave...

    Do politicians, who are profit and power hungry individuals, care for the constitution? NO! At least CEOs are bound by law. Politicians can just change it. The New Deal was unconstitutional, and only passed because of FDR's evil deeds. When first presented to the Supreme Court, the New Deal...

    Actually, I don't wish to destroy government. I wish to *GASP* actually make them obey the constitution! :eek: How many extremely obvious examples and blinding articles to I have to feed you before you realize MINIMUM WAGE HURTS WORKERS THE MOST! Since using force is unlawful, I doubt...

    Record Pork Barrel Spending.

    It's not ONLY the Supreme Court's fault! ALL THREE branches of government must go against the constitution for it to work. And currently, all three branches see the constitution as a piece of paper that keeps us quiet. We need an amendment that tremendously penalizes officials if they violate...

    (emphasis mine) The Constitution is NOT GUIDELINES! It consists of STRICT LIMITATIONS on government power, not suggestive guidelines on how to function.

    These politicians don't even have the right to institute this pork spending in the first place! It's against their constitutional oath! Simply voting them out won't do! Others will replace them easily! What we need is a CONSEQUENCE for their actions. There needs to be a huge penalty for any...

    I figured you might just feel guilty for supporting the government's theft of my hard earned money. But I guess that thought would never cross your mind. You have no problem with telling the government to steal from all of us. Yes, they do all of that. Yet they do it extremely inefficiently...

    Since you seem to like it, could you pay mine as well?

    I think your criticism of me is quite unnecessary. If anyone's insane, it's all of you for letting the government trample your rights.

    There would be no "setting aside of land" for communes, as there won't be any setting aside of land for ANYONE. You can use the land you already have. Or sell your land and buy some in a common area to establish your commune. While Libertarians don't think communes can work, they still...

    Record Pork Barrel Spending.

    As I discussed thoroughly in a previous thread, a Libertarian government tolerates whatever people with to do with their lives, including establishing local governments. Those of you who want to "tame" the "run wild" capitalism are free to do so IN YOUR OWN COMMUNITY. Go ahead. But in my...

    Record Pork Barrel Spending.

    Explain to me how a government without taxes and without a monopoly on our currency would be able to include pork in their budget. By the way, just like to let you know another neat fact. When presidential candidates reach a certain amount in their campaign funds, the government offers to...

    Record Pork Barrel Spending.

    There is a simple way for us to fix it. STOP ELECTING OFFICIALS WHO SUPPORT IT! Republicans and Democrats see no problem in violating and mutilating the constitution. Stop voting for them! Start voting for someone who will actually uphold their OATH!

    A question for Gabo

    It's not that I don't like it. It's that it's not for me. I need to be fully free, not bound by any obligations to others. I want to count on only myself and provide only for myself. Ok, they're not really socialist. But they're definitely becoming more authoritarian/statist. I am willing to...
