You Don't Want to Live in a Libertarian World?

by Greg Samples

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?

The 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.

The government 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.
The government that has passed bills in conflict with the constitution, and they laugh at anyone bringing this to their attention.

The government that has meddled in the internal affairs of foreign nations, causing their citizens to direct their hostility towards the U.S.

The 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 10th Amendments.

The government that has confiscated private property for non-public purposes, in violation of the 4th and 5th Amendments.

The 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.

The 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.

The 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.
