The mythos of libertarianism is that we left capitalism 90-120 years ago, and that the country woulda been better off with out so much government control.
Also that the gov't is at the center of todays problems, that over regulation, a federal reserve, anti-monopoly laws, and a social safety net only prolongs downturns. That the income tax only serves to allow for a huge military, which should be cut forth with, along with 3-5 departments of gov't.
So, being a fair minded conservative, I decided to try and find a country that has tried these things. Then it dawned on me... There IS such a country.. one that in the 1880-1900 were much like the USA. But they never fell victim to a federal reserve, conservative anti-monopoly laws, Liberal and Conservative military build-ups.
They never adopted guaranteed public educations that conservatives and liberals alike shoved down there throats. Never any liberal tinkering there, not any save-for-tommorrow conservatism either.
And let me tell you folks, I was there 20 years ago, and it's a 'paradise' no rampent health care costs, no out of control bureaucracy. None of that. Minimum wage, nope? too commie. Industrial regulation? what you some kinda teddy roosevelt l queer, Not there.
Ah yes, the philippeans, paradise on earth. The place where even children can get a job(only way to feed family)
Where women are free to be prostitutes, In fact there it's a major industry (try to outsource that)
Where the glistening brown waters of shit river(yes that's it's name) tells of it's beauty from the aroma a mile away( really not kidding)
And there health care is as affordable, as the begging you'll need to do to pay for it. None of that big gov't health services.
And being that the energy grid is COMPLETELY monopolized and UNREGULATED, it provides predictable and reliable service (in that it went offline every weekend)
Heck there wasn't just no animal cruelty laws toward cats and dogs, they were ON the menu(weather you knew it or not).
I could go on and on, heck, maybe a book (Atlas Shat). In it I'll have the main character invent a static stupid machine(libertarianism).
Cause remember folks, what libertarians did to the philippeans
THEY WILL DO, and have been doing here too.
