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.
There's nothing more feckless, more useless, than one of those Libertarians. They're above the everyday give and take / compromise of actual governance, so they're never in power anywhere and never will be. They're all about the outward appearance of being against something, typically the Gummint or Big Pharma, Mean Corporations, etc, et al. They're not about power and when you're yelling about politics, power is the only thing that counts. What's important to these nuts is lecturing and posturing.
Power emerges from, and is held by, whoever or whatever controls working capital because that buys politicians, unions, lobbyists, write laws and regulations, tells the attorney general what laws to enforce and what no to. That system is very resistant to change, and Sorens' fantasy of libertarians taking over a small state is beyond naive, as are those of "Objectivist Girl" and the other loons mentioned.
No one's going to beat this system, because (1) "Objectivist Girl" and those like her will never pick up a rifle because she's always going to be "explaining Ann Rynd on videos" and wearing her dramatic eye makeup; and (2) there are enough of us who do quite well under the status quo.
I'm saying that its absolutely critical that you sincerely believe and are willing to fight (that is, fight the Japanese, Nazis and Commies) for the notion that you were born with inalienable rights, and it is the governed that grant these rights to the state. GM, the AFL/CIO and Wall Street thank you, and permit you to debate whether the commerce clause should be more restricted or whether drones should be due processed down in flames. Because the answer doesn't matter, you get to decide.
Washington, et al... those guys were men of property and power and when it came time to pick up rifles to preserve their way of life (ask any slave pre- and post-revolution how much the revolution mattered to them), they did so. I'm guessing someone worried about tax money wasted on relief to the undeserving poor isn't in that same class. Maybe if it was explained on a youtube video... .
