    That's why I guess Libertarians are considered persona non grata in the political world. They think things magically fix themselves. Now be a good Libertarian and write freedom, post a quote by Jefferson and then a rant about how you hate fascists. That will show us.

    We've been over his thoughts on Obamacare. Even mentioning it in the same breath as the word "slavery" is moronic.

    It certainly sounds pretty dumb when you take what Pelosi said completely out of context ... like you just did.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

Expertise in one is not a free ticket to expertise in another.
    Poor analogy, eh? What is it with you guys attacking not his opinions, but the very fact that he dares to comment? I suppose you will now cease to comment on slavery, politics, etc... Everything that you are not considered to be experts on.
    And what are you talking about with Jordan? His demonstration of baseball. Though he was a crummy professional, he would probably be considered an expert since he would probably be in the top 5% of all the people in the country at playing baseball.

    Is this supposed to be an argument for Keynesian economics and welfare programs? Do you think Keynesian economics was ever actually practiced? Do you think that welfare actually resolves problems?

    Oh I think we've been quite good about ridiculing his absurd rhetoric.

    You besides that it's been shown that the law is filled with provisions that amount to slavery.

    Not really. It's a well placed joke at the expense of the average welfare receiving Libertarian.

    slav·er·y
    /ˈslāvərē/
    Noun

    The state of being a slave.
    The practice or system of owning slaves.
    You dishonor my ancestors by pretending your complaints about a tax are comparable to what they went through.

    Using a very odd definition of slavery, apparently.

    He's a Libertarian. What did you expect? In his mind, he's being held in chains, whipped in the hot sun, told to work for 17 hours a day, sold like cattle and his family has been sold off to the highest bidder. That's how serious people who make such claims are. They really think ACA actually amounts to physical suffering as well as social and cultural destruction.
