    I don't know what "standard" you're referring to, or how in the world you read the poll and interpreted it as a "perfect utopian society" to simply ask which of those things would do the most good for the world. It's an exercise to determine what people think are the most pressing issues facing the world; if you do not have the mental faculties to engage in such a thought experiment, you do not have to participate.

    LOL, whata crocka bull malarky!!!__Big government is nothing more than a Marxist lie that promises to redistribute the rewards of the producers to the nonproducers by playing on the desire of losers to get something for nothing.

    The only ones who believe this nonsense are the gullible suckers who haven't learned the historical lesson that once the producers have been destroyed, the nonproducers are left at the mercy of a Big Government totalitarian police state.

    Duhhh__Haven't you ever wondered why they work so hard at disarming the masses before the fateful day when the true nature of the beast rears it's ugly head???__The Marxist/Progressive architects are well aware that rebellion is inevitable.

    Ayn Rand didn't like Libertarians. Besides, most Libertarians are too ashamed of their lean to just come out of the proverbial closet.

    Exactly what was it about libertarians that Ayn Rand didn't like?

    I'm very interested in whatever facts you can provide on this subject?

    Most libertarians that I've known take great pride in their political uniqueness__Go figure?!

    I agree, most Libertarians aren't as weird as you seem to be if what you say about your life and upbringing is true. However, I seriously doubt any of it is true and you just don't want to admit your parents are die hard liberals ashamed that they raised a Rand-ophile.

    Exactly what was it about libertarians that Ayn Rand didn't like?

    I'm very interested in whatever facts you can provide on this subject?
    The Ayn Rand Institute: Ayn Rand's Q & A on Libertarianism

    Q: Do you think Libertarians communicate the ideas of freedom and capitalism effectively? [Q&A following LP’s “Objective Communication,” Lecture 1, 1980]

    AR: I don’t think plagiarists are effective. I’ve read nothing by a Libertarian (when I read them, in the early years) that wasn’t my ideas badly mishandled—i.e., had the teeth pulled out of them—with no credit given. I didn’t know whether I should be glad that no credit was given, or disgusted. I felt both. They are perhaps the worst political group today, because they can do the most harm to capitalism, by making it disreputable.

    Most libertarians that I've known take great pride in their political uniqueness__Go figure?!
    Yeah, I've been to freak shows in India. They take great pride in their "uniqueness" too.
