    That's something aint it. The damnyankee sees himself above the constitution, until he changes it.

    Glory, glory....hallelujah!

    So Jesus isn't above the Constitution? Good to know. I guess I should be worshipping Jefferson Davis instead.

    That's priceless coming from a Libertarian.


    It would be priceless coming from a 'common' conservative.

    And this is what the South was dealing with. A Northern attitude that saw itself above the Constitution. That saw itself as above the South. That would not allow the South the protections it should have under the Constitution. Becasue the North was above the Constitution.

    Yet its the South that are the 'traitors'. Its the South that are called 'rebels'. Its the South that are the evil bad people. Because they refused to live under a Union where they were not treated as equal and where the Constitution was not respected and they could expect no fair treatment.

    The first part, "If you want people to be happy you take steps to make them happy.", sounds more like pandering than anything else. In that light it seems damned funny coming from a Libertarian.

    It would have been even more comical coming from a conservative since they seem to believe their politicians are above that kind of thing. Not true, of course, virtually all politicians do it, but they seem to think otherwise.

    You have to pay out of your nose and give me everything!

    You are such a patriot.
    You have no freedom to turn traitor and have a state leave the union. Your premise fails right out of the gate.

    Yes, libertarian policies would indeed result in harm to people.

    It is pandering. You make them happy by making them free.

    You don't make them happy by making them your tax slaves like haymarket desires.

    Because the FDA keeps medicines safe .

    And libertarians do have a plan for unsafe products produced by the market. Do you know what it is?
