    I was questioned once about being a libertarian and supporting needle exchange programs. When asked why do i support government spending on heroin addicts i responded something like, "AIDS is bad"

    If the guy is robbing your house it is too late.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    If the analogy has to be that realistic, say he threatens to come over again unless you pay him $100. Do you choose to pay him the money or to call the police?

    palin says socialism is redistribution of wealth. the police force is a redistribution of wealth.

    i suppose some libertarians would prefer militia police like they have in afghanistan?

    Explain your statement.

    Perhaps you could name these Libertarians that prefer militia police.
