You say you’re happy you don’t live in a libertarian world? You prefer the world you have now?
The world that has seen the death of over 50 million people in the last century at the hands of their own government.
Oh, you just prefer your own government now, not the whole world?
The government that has stolen the wealth of the common man and transferred it to the 1% via a fraudulent, fiat currency?
government that has sent troops, money, equipment and other support to
aid foreign nations in wars and covert actions without lawful
congressional approval, engaging in non defensive military action in
over 130 countries, often as mercenaries, and killing hundreds of
thousands of innocent humans in those countries.
that has imposed a harsh, progressive income tax on the sweat of the
middle class, causing families to work longer and with incomes from both
parents just to make ends meet, and depriving children of parental
supervision at the most critical times of their lives.
government that has passed bills in conflict with the constitution, and
they laugh at anyone bringing this to their attention.
government that has meddled in the internal affairs of foreign nations,
causing their citizens to direct their hostility towards the U.S.
government that has emitted unconstitutional bills of credit through
the Federal Reserve System, incurring debts for the payment of
unconstitutional activities or expenditures.
The government that
has allowed the erosion of individual sovereignty by claiming powers for
the Federal Government not authorized by the Constitution, and strictly
prohibited by the 9th and 10th Amendments.
The government that
has invaded the privacy of non-criminal Americans by obtaining and
storing information about them in violation of the 4th, 5th, 9th and
The government that has confiscated private property for non-public purposes, in violation of the 4th and 5th Amendments.
government that has impaired justice by misinformation and incorrect
instructions to juries. Judges have presided over cases when there was a
conflict of interest. They have defied the 6th and 7th Amendments.
government that has prosecuted Americans for activities which have no
victims. Prosecutions include activities involving drugs, sex, medical
assistance, taxation and currencies. More than half the prison
population in America is incarcerated for non-violent, non-larcenous,
consensual adult behavior.
The government that has prohibited the free choice of medical treatment.
The government that has allowed the torture of POWs and criminal suspects.
The government that has protected the infliction of violence on their own citizens such as the transgressions at Ruby Ridge.
government that has enacted forfeiture laws which take private property
without due process of law, in violation of the 5th Amendment.
The government that has assessed heavy fines for minor offenses, in violation of the 8th Amendment.
This is what you are asking for with a non-libertarian government.
