    Why is that? A state needs to be able to defend itself don't you think?

    There is approximately one handgun for every human being in the United States and a standing volunteer corps of armed forces at over 1.5 million. If a nation like that needs a draft in order to defend itself, it DESERVES to be overrun from the outside.

    Why would we need to forbid printing of money if we returned to a hard gold standard? Conducting all business with specie seems pretty annoying and untenable to me.

    I above all think about forbidding for the government to print money, but as long as the golden standard is admit, I don't mind about people printing money by themselves.

    That shopping list makes me think that you're in for a lot of unanticipated consequences.

    I dont live in a country were there has been a draft, Northern Ireland being exempt for political reasons and I'm pretty sure Ireland was exempt too prior to partition and the independence of ROI but I cant help but think that a lot of the resistance, particularly among the capitalist radical youth in the US, is not conscientious objection for the most part but shirking obligations, of any description, towards anyone else.

    I cant believe anyone would seriously consider the reduction of the age of conscent to 12, I got to believe that's a troll post among real posts, along with the prohibition on jews holding public office and killing illegal immigrants.

    I'm a bit curious about how pleased libertarians will be once the whole US is compelled to adopt the amish lifestyle their economic policies require though. That population reduction pre-requisite will bite all by itself.

    Socialist are especially good at this, they're all about interventionism and but they can't anticipate the consequences of their intervention.

    However, in this case, the consequences exist in your imagination only.
