So... because he wanted money, he shouldnt support raising taxes. By that logic no one should support any taxes, at all. I mean... what?
I feel like Im being Poes Law-ed here.
People are not little balls of wonder and joy, people are stupid. If they act smart, nay, if they act NOT-stupid for even a moment it was a fluke.
Governments are made of people. Markets are made of people. Businesses are not rational they are stupid. Do you see the problem now? And do you understand my skepticism of your belief that Ron Paul will usher in a utopia where the all knowing hand of the market will guide our every step?
Whenever someone points out a failure of Capitalism you say that it wasnt really Capitalism because it wasnt divorced from reality enough. In that respect you and your ilk are just like Communists. "That wasnt REALLY Communism".
When you build a structure in an area prone to earthquakes you have to build it in such a way that it will sway with the quake. It has to have certain amount of give or else it will fall. Thats the problem with Libertarianism/Communism, they dont have any give to them. They dont take in to account human nature, sure Communism would be great if it worked as intended, a benevolent authoritarian state dividing up the goods fairly, but it doesnt work that way. BECAUSE PEOPLE DONT WORK THAT WAY.
Libertarianism would be the best fucking thing since sliced bread if it was in any way compatible with human nature. People are not rational, people are not smart, people are not pure beacons of pure Randian morality. People are corrupt idiots and there is nothing we can do to change that, all we can do is work around it.
