    yes I no you think the drug war is stupid its one of the only places I agree with libertarians. In fact I am a social libertarian myself. The rest of y'all are nutso tho... And usually very greedy or two ignorant to even understand what the word means (no really 23% of ppl that affiliate as libertarian have no clue what it means) and even less have any idea as to what version of libertarian they subscribe too...

    Which is expected. It takes greatness to climb from the bottom to the top and most people are anything but great.

    I think you'd be hard-pressed to find a libertarian who supports feudalism.
    or one who sits around whining about people being wealthy. of course you don't detail solutions-you have none

    Re: Income Inequality

    There are some very basic ways to get ahead in life and reach Income Equality

    1) Wake up
    2) Get up out of bed
    3) Dress for work
    4) Show up for work on time and be ready to do a good days work
    5)Don't screw up
    6) And NEVER give up

    People notice what you do at work...Good or Bad. You have choices in life to make.

    Some are felons and others take responsibility for themselves and don't blame others for their own mistakes in life.

    Because long term economic understanding behooves one to ensure that his most likely customer retains the ability to purchase his products. Duh.

    Not really. A man of good work ethic can work hard and never move that far ahead in his life. All jobs have caps and if you want to move past the cap you need to leave and go elsewhere.

    I am wealthy, but like every other wealthy person, I am not going to give it away. Why in the heck would I do that?

    However that doesn't negate the fact that in order to have a stable and growing economy, we need the average American consumer to have enough disposable income in order to buy cars and houses, get an education and be economic engines.

    That can't happen when all the availible capital in an economy is pooled into the hands of just a few minority of people.

    Hence "the choices in life". Belonging to a union will not let you advance either while in the union.
