Comment Re:Libertarians have too much baggage. (Score 1) 785

The corporations and unions wouldn't be half as powerful if there weren't a lot of politicians around, who could give them hand-outs. Less politicians, more oversight, less corruption. Every libertarian I know of favors less politicians and bureaucrats. Also I would love to know which the attepts to create a fully free market economy are. In my experience it seems like most every major economic downturn, starts in industries with clear government ties. Banking, military, oil. Banks' license to in essence print money, might be 'pro business', but it isn't 'pro freedom'. It might be good for capitalists, but not good for capitalism. Unfortunately, a lot of people who can not differentiate between the two, have been put in charge of all our future.

The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all your time.
