Re: “Is Brüno South-a-phobic?

Of course I don't hate the blacks, just as I don't hate the south. I know the south don't stand for ignorance, intolerance, and hate just as much as I know that not all black people are womanizers, over-materialistic, and are in gangs. Both statements are absurd fueled by simple ignorant assumptions.

The south do not campaign on such values. They campaign on absolute individual rights.

Re: “Is Brüno South-a-phobic?


Excuse me? Maybe my statement just flew over your head. My comment was only to shed light on your statement of "the south only support ignorant, intolerant, and hate."

That is so incredibly wrong and run on logical fallacies - as I pointed out.

Re: “The Tyranny of Mark Levin's "Liberty"

Source of Truth,

Just like how the Keynesian model collapsed. You will never hear from the media, even if it is backed by some of the most prominent economists from the Chicago-style school like Milton Freidman, that the very source of the prolonged 30's depression was Keynes economics. You would have a hard time looking on the left, but they are there, finding the quotes from the Fed admitting that they created and only prolonged the depression with their faulty policies.

Re: “Jack Hunter: "Deranged Blogger," Possibly Gay

A common argument from the far left is that the people in the market place are irrational and the only way to create a stable economy is to involve government in the trading of every day life. "Don't worry, the government will take care of you." This is what we are looking at when we talk about bailouts and national health-care.

The rebuttal to that, due to individual opportunity costs, it is impossible for the government to judge each and every individuals' wants and needs objectively and as a whole because each and every person's wants and needs are all met with individual and subjective values. You, me, everyone, we are all different (even if only on a slightly different level) with different wants and needs. Thereby, government involvement of bringing the unconscious actions of the market into conscious light through socialism is only irrational.

For a basic example: Can any of you predict, to a tee, the "next big thing" in the market? I highly doubt it and the same goes for the government and all the top financial advisers.

But now I'm going offtopic and on a tangent. I'll stop now.

The only thing close to a real laizze-faire system today is Hong Kong. They support incredible levels of free trade with very limited government involvement. Almost all of their welfare is based on national trade. It has held the number one spot on the "most free" list for the past fifteen years. Hong Kong has the third highest standard of education. Their average life expectancy is around 85 years. Finally their average household GDP rivals that of the entire nation of the United States.

"Radical" laissez-faire indeed...
