Yes of course but first we need to become more known.
Yes but we will never get elected.
No and I'm damn glad of it.
No because we will never get well known/enough votes.
Oh yes...'your' way worked SO much better. Blacks are doing SO WELL in this country.
Read my books! http://michaelaventrella.com
... the "private sector" and the teabaggers... proven losers.
Also it might help if you actually UNDERSTAND history. But then...Ive read far too many of your postings, so I get that you are an ideologue...all you see is what you see because it fits your tiny little ideals of right and wrong.
You DO know that the US didnt invent slavery...dont you? You DO know that it was practiced centuries before any European ever set foot on this land by its aboriginal people...right? You GET of course that slavery was practiced in Europe, Africa, the Americas, EVERYWHERE...right...and that it wasnt evil white people from Europe that landed in this new place and said..."hey...I have an idea..." I dont know if you have ever read the history on who the first person was to actually petition for the right to person ownership in the colonies...THAT makes for a stunning read actually. And you REALLY arent so fooolish as to believe the Civil War was started because the northern states wanted to end slavery because they cared about them and not for economic means. You PROBABLY havent ever read the history of many of the southern leaders who rejected slavery and even worked to change the institution while serving in federal government positions and only went back to the south reluctantly not to defend slavery but to resist the north in its attempt to FORCE the south into compliance with northern and federal rule. They could have been decision and change makers as well.
The US was already evolving on a societal level...far faster than ANY of our European counterparts. But as is typical with ANY form of forced coersion, the southern states rebelled and we still have the tensions we have today. Its really not that difficult of a concept. Two people can have a logical and progressive debate and exchange of ideals and eventually the right ideals usually win out. But when you tell the other side...change or Im going to kick your ass...well...golly...what happens next...hmmm...I wonder...
The libertarian model wouldnt have endorsed or condoned slavery. It would have allowed the spread of the anti-slavery movement to overcome the practice. Eventually slavery would have died off and I daresay race relations would be RADICALLY better. Now...of course...thats an OPINION...but as proof I MIGHT point to the fact that we have rampanat unemployment overall in the black communities...that their numbers are grossly overrepresented in prison...that their communities endure a far greater crime rate than any other communities in the country...that the black family has been devastated by democrat policies and ideologies...that put plainly...have NOT served America well.
But since you didnt at all address what I actually SAID...let me clue you in. Oh...I have no doubt it will have no impact on YOU...but...here goes...
libertarians dont believe in NO government...they believe in constitutional government. They believe in appropriate LEVELS of federal, state, and local government. And bytheway...they probably believe much the same as you...for example...
The federal government should be allowed to dictate reproductive decisions. Right?
The government SHOULD be jailing people for drug use. Right?
The federal government SHOULD be monitoring your phone calls...emails...anything sent via the US postal service... Right?
See...at heart...MOST people are libertartians. But the hypocrites...they WANT federal government involvement when it involves freesources...taking from someone else and giving to them.
No one is suggesting no laws. No one is suggesting repeal of civil rights laws. All Rand Paul suggested and all I have indicated is that a more healthy, more effective, swifter, change would have occured without federal forced coersion.
Actually there are. Every American who lives their day to day life by the maxims of "minding their own business" and "taking care of their own", who doesn't go out of their way to tell their neighbor what to do or how to live, is a libertarian at heart... most of them just haven't realized it yet.
