  •  I get your point. (0+ / 0-)

    But I think you're making the same assumption that ontheleftcoast made, which is that libertarianism equals support for the military-industrial compex. I don't think it does.

    •  Not exactly my point (6+ / 0-)

      The absence of government power would most likely lead to corporate power filling the vacuum. Up to and including private armies.

      Rule by big money is no better and probably worse than rule by big government.

      Exchanging regulations on corporations for the "Jungle".

      I would rather that corporations be regulated (and taxed) until their eyes bulge out.

      I am reading Upton Sinclair's "Jungle". Now while the horrors of that book would not ever be realized in this country, they are being realized wherever and whenever there is NO regulation.

      I vote NO to Libertarianism.

      Ugh. --UB.
