    ..it's like being against head lice. The problem is these people are so stupid, if you don't agree with them then you MUST be for higher taxes. AS if there is no other possible position to have.

    I have tried explaining my thoughts to some of these folks. They just glaze over and mutter taxes suck. The baggers are simply followers and now they are falling into the mob mentality of violence, justifying it all the while with their ignorant belief set.

    I have lost patience with these "morans". Trying to reason with them is simply not possible in most cases.

    By the way, when will we discard this notion that lowering taxes inherently improves the economy? George W did it (2nd biggest cut pkge ever), Obama is still doing it, and the economy is sluggish at best. Why don't we look at our trade policy for answers to economic growth?

    -7.5 -7.28, Sheesh, you call me a socialist like that's a bad thing.

    •  How about being against services? (2+ / 0-)

      That's the problem with libertarian thinking.  They won't acknowledge that one way or the other you'll pay for services.  You can pay private companies yes but then you will be preyed upon.  What's to limit private companies in their fees?  Competition?  That just doesn't work because there is way too much collusion - either implicit or explicit.

      In short, economic libertarian doctrine is bullshit.

      You don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad.
