    Yeah - one never knows when British King George will rise from the grave and tax tea again causing Yankee Doodle to have to pawn his tri-cornered hat.

They took risks and dared to live their announced convictions. You have to admire that while having nothing but pity for the opposite.
    Oh, and I might add that there was a book written a few decades ago that outlined what would happen should the productive withdraw and turn the nation over to looters like yourself. I think it was called Atlas Shrugged or something like that. Perhaps you have heard of it. Perhaps you might give it a read so you don't look so foolish when you speak.

    No I will not. That is what is called "theft". Power is not self-legitimizing.

    Yeah - I have heard of toilet paper also. And it is far more useful and far less abrasive that Rand.

    Oh you will. Or you will accept the consequences of breaking the law. One way or the other - you will pay if it is the law of the land.

    the use of force also does not create legitimacy. I am under no obligation to make good on Detroits' self-destructive decisions, despite your desire to expand the ability of public sector unions to suck on the productivity of others.


    But I like how you so quickly reach for the "give me money or else" stick. Thank you for demonstrating so ably the particular nature of your side.

    The hypocrisy of the libertarian is their constant carping, their non stop whining, their perpetual bitching, their litany of complaints, and their notebook filled with sobs all about the terrible system we live in which oppresses freedom and liberty and constrains them and their beliefs...... but they still stay, they still enjoy the fruits of a cooperative society that they appear to despise.... they still enjoy the benefits of a government they profess to oppose and some even loathe. They attack eminent domain but yet use our airports, our roads, our infrastructure which was produced using the constitutional power. They ;whine and cry about zoning laws but enjoy living in communities with zoning laws that improve and protect their quality of life. They attack public employees but reap the benefits of their education and labor and the services they provide.

    I think that covers enough for the time being.

    Legitimacy is in the eye of the beholder. And the beholder that counts in this land is the peoples government which determines if something is legitimate or not.
