We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
In the context of our current system, two of his ideas are pretty good ideas.
A "land-value" tax seems to be some sort of wealth tax, which would make terrific sense if it replaced the income tax. I, for one, have had more than enough of Warren Buffet and Bill Gates types advocating for higher income taxes, which by and large don't affect them. Screw 'em. They want higher taxes--fine, implement a wealth tax and let them feel the tax pain we wage slaves feel. That will put an end to feel-good limousine liberalism.
State owned banks are a great idea because they loosen the mutually beneficial circle jerk between the banking sector and the federal government. North Dakota's state bank has been a tremendous success.
From a libertarian perspective, even the minimum basic income through social security is not a terrible idea. Most current social security recipients receive dramatically more in benefits than they ever paid into the system, which is to say that SS is essentially a welfare program of a guaranteed basic income for those aged 62 and above. What's so special about 62? Why not 55, 46, or even 22? What the hell--if we're going to hand out money why not go full freight? Half the country is on the receiving end of federal benefits. Why not load up the other half?
I think the minimum income concept is already in place when one considers all of the current government programs. Even the concept of the minimum wage no longer applies in our economy as most of these people receive benefits as low-income workers. WalMart even provides low-wage employees with information on all available programs so they grouse less about what they make at WalMart.
