Absolutely. But contrary to you baiting post, we should be taxed "enough." Not "more than other people," or "enough to pay for a bloated government."
Less government spending on quality of life for its citizens.
Yes, but what is "quality of life?" Your opinion is much different than ours.
Less development of infrastructure
This is stupid and trollish.
Less regulation of business
Again...yes, less regulation. No one said there should be NO regulation.
Less regulation on what goes into the food we eat
What I said above.
Less regulation on how safe our cars are
What I said above.
On what kind of weapons we can buy
What I said above.
On the safely of the medicine we take
See, your trollish extremism has blinded you to what libertarians actually think. Not that you'd have a problem. Liberals enjoy that blind extremism.
there are quite a lot of things the government does that is in our best interest.
Yes, but there are also TOO MANY things government does in THEIR best interest, and against the will of the people.
But that’s not city life. Now I live about 4 miles north of Detroit. The “take care of your own” school of public welfare doesn’t work in the city, and 80% of the population of the US (World) lives in cities. The centralization of human populations creates big problems. We can ignore those problems on principle, or we can accept that big problems require big solutions. I accept we need big solutions to fix our social issues, and I simply don’t see “Do nothing, or do less than we’re doing now” as an acceptable solution.
Gee...I wonder why libertarianism doesn't work in Detroit? Maybe because that useless excuse of a city is overrun with crime and this glorification of "Thug Life?" Detroit is a city full of losers who couldn't fend for themselves with a how-to manual. Come to a decent city where people DO take care of themselves.
You don’t like Government taxation or regulation, clearly. What would you have us replace it with?
Again...this is why you really DON'T get libertarianism. No one said "no taxation." No one said "no regulation." The problem is that we have a fascist president with an oligarchic government hell-bent on creating the biggest, most convoluted bureaucratic nightmare ever. The well being of the citizens is an afterthought. People who really think the government cares about you are suckers.
Is there a currently government model you would use as an example?
Classical Constitutional Government is perfect. The Federal Government should only
be interested in protecting the nation against aggressors and maintaining good trade. State Government should be a microcosm of the federal level, but interested in state affairs. Local government an even smaller microcosm. Unfortunately, we've got politicians that want EVERYTHING run by the Feds, with State and Local governments just acting as puppets.
Having a small government has never been linked to a strong economy or better quality of life that I know of.
It worked for the first 200 years of this government.
Should we put all our trust in Corporations to do the right thing? They, historically speaking, never ever ever do, so why should we trust them to know?
Corporations are interested in one thing...profit. It's retarded to think differently. They do not care about their employees. They do not care about the community. But we should not expect anything else
. Corporations however, create wealth. Something Government cannot do. This is why they are a necessary evil. The biggest regulator of corporations isn't
the government...it's the consumer. Let consumers be the regulators. Let the free market weed out the winners and losers (yes there will be losers, but not everyone can be a winner, regardless of what Lord 0bama says).
