    Remember that the US owes it's very existence to treason.

    Strange.
    Holy jeez, you're abso-****ing-lutely right. I mean some states have changed their flags and removed any obvious signs of the confederacy, others have that ugly blue color used in like 30 states. Others have what I'd call nods to the confederacy. As far as I can tell, nobody seems to be all that worried about flying the flags of their supposedly sovereign states. That pokes quite a whole in the whole "ancestry" line and the entire matter behind this flag.

    The only one there worth responding to is the last one. Roads in a libertarian society would not be under the control of the state.
    Wow. Just...wow. You don't even know your own so-called party's rhetoric.

    Anyway, in this comical "Libertardian society" under whose direction would the roads be under? Alex Jone$ supporters who buy junk vitamins and water filters?

    And the history books claim the last days of Rome were scary.

    Party? I'm not a member of any party.

    And the history books say we have more in common with Rome today than anything I support.

    That's like saying atheism can be a religion even though there is nothing mystical/spiritual/religious about it. Lol, what you have is not a political ideology at all. Political ideologies deal with governance at every level. Simply saying that you don't want any kind of governance at all (you know, that's what states at all levels do) is not a political ideology of any sort.

    That reminds me of Groucho Marx...He said "he would not belong to any club that would have him as a member."

    Again, that's really nice and all, but it's wrong. Anarcho-capitalism or otherwise known as voluntaryism is a political ideology.

    Voluntaryism = hipster speak for intellectual and physical laziness. Hardly qualifies as a political ideology. Just empty rhetoric spoken by disillusioned Rethuglicons who seriously believe in nonsense such as not paying taxes gives them some sort of political clout and power. Best of luck with that, Libertardian.

    Lmao, you started off your amazing descent into complete intellectual obliteration by pointing out the contradictions of the very real ideology that is liberalism, and yet here you are espousing what is at best a train of though. A train of thought that is inherently contradictory based on even the slightest understanding of human nature and the chaos that would ensue within a system where people are subservient to the whims of private companies.

    Marla, suggestion, we tend to frown upon giving people little cute nicknames like that. I mean, they're funny, but it could get you gigged (DP speak for infractions) and worse booted from the forum. I'd suggest you relax on them a bit. We can all have a cordial discussion without necessarily descending into all out insults. This is especially true considering Henrin has been pretty civilized throughout this entire exchange.
