    I don't live in a libertarian world of make believe. I live in the very same world you do, in which real people do indeed exist. I just don't feel as if I have the right to take what belongs to them. Apparently you do.
    You could not be farther from reality. You advocate things which are simply not part of the real world.

    I have no idea what that means. Libertatians are the ones on the outside looking in and spouting off about their ideal world which simply does not exist.

    The sad reality for you is that the US Constitution clearly authorizes eminent domain no matter how the libertarians object to it on the one hand while pretending to worship the Founders with the other. In some circles that would be called disociative disorder and a mental illness.

    Why is wanting to be left alone, and for others to also be left alone pie in the sky? Its the left always interjecting and making everything their business. Its demonstrable in this thread.

    Why are you a champion of the govt forcibly taking property or wealth to use as it see's fit? What is it that you find so attractive?

    Not a champion of anything but the US Constitution and the people of the USA and their elected government which represents them.

    Actually, it DOES mirror real life. I graduated high school in a small town that had ONE doctor and ONE supermarket - if you could call it that. And that town is still there today - I drove through there in February. There's LOTS more towns just like it, too, in rural America.

    This is a cop out. When its something you dont like, you will use every technique possible to circumvent the Constitution and the people of the USA.
