But I will give you one point in your logic that cannot be refuted. If the Libertarian style government was the norm, large armies, navies and air forces, as well as nation states, would not be funded.

Thanks AG, Lets face it Agelbert, no political party or system is perfect, you and I can find faults with all of them at any time.

When I hear we gotta stop these evil disgraceful wars and get the Government out of things they are not supposed to be doing, like spying on their citizens, turning the country into a militarized war zone, buying tanks and bazookas for local police, killing civilians with drones my ears perk up. To me Libertarians under a Ron Paul are not even close to being ideal, but just a step in the right direction is all.

Your point about a rebirth of MORALITY is the right point, that's what we need for sure. Unfortunately I'm not that much of a romantic to hold my breath waiting for that to come about, not without there being a RUDE AWAKENING first that is.  :-\

GO,
You are most welcome. Morality and no nonsense mandatory ethical behavior enforced by law is what we need. And yep, like you, I'm not holding my breath either.  :(

Here's a video (below) that I recommend. I believe these Dr. Strangeloves behind this global experiment (funded with our money   ) will get a VERY rude awakening when a HUGE chunk of Greenland ice sheet slides into the ocean, despite their feverish, and pseudo scientific, efforts to save fossil fueldom's ASS. Then there is going to be HELL to pay when it comes out that their experiment made everything WORSE. 

And speaking of "Rude Awakening", I read that newsletter for almost a decade. In fact, the Libertarian that runs it (forgot his name  :-[) was the guy that made that statement about a monarchy being the best and most stable form of government if you have a benevolent monarch. He also said, as early as the year 2000, that gold was the "Trade of the Decade". He was right!

But after 2010, he said that gold was more of an inflation hedge than anything else. I agree with that too. But I'm not an investor so it really does not make much difference to me. He is of Irish descent from Maryland. He lived in France for a while and then went back to the USA. He's got a ranch in Argentina which is totally off grid that he used to spend a lot of time on. I have not kept up with what he is up to for years.

Here's that video. It will knock your socks off!

One more thing. The grim reaper made a low pass at me when I got up today (before I had posted or read anything so nobody here was the cause    ). I was feeling quite well, was engaged in emptying my bladder, when I got real dizzy and started to get nausea. I finished up as quick as I could and walked into my bedroom where my wife was talking to me and kneeled down on the floor. She saw I was doing the Syncope two step and became very concerned that the pacemaker battery was failing (It's supposed to last ten years and I'm a little over eight). I managed to go to the computer room (while my wife was telling me to lay down on the bed NOW! ), grab my pulse watch (pilots love to read the gages!  ;D) and go back the few steps to the bedroom where I laid down. My wife said I was very pale.  :o  :P  I checked my pulse and it was at 61. I kept checking it and it dropped to 56, then 53, then, within seconds (an ETERNITY for the pacemaker software!) up to 62.

The pacemaker is supposed to kick in at 60. There is NOT supposed to be a delay.  After a few minutes my pulse got up to between 65 and 70. I did not actually faint and the nausea went away within a couple of minutes along with the dizziness so the pacemaker IS working, but I felt rather strange the rest of the day. My hands stayed cold until I exercised a few hours later. My wife has been hovering over me. I showed her where to push on my sternum for CPR if the agelbert batteries crap out. She was not a happy camper. I marked the date so the pacemaker clinic can look at "episode" data when they dump it on my next check up.     

I'm okay now. Cheated death again. 

Nearer my Lord, to thee.
Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
