The biggest threat we face is our debt. And trying to rid the world of terrorists is only going to make that worse.

I was going to argue with them but what's the point.

One thing that really bugs me is the "conservative" hypocrites who want to punish businesses that hire illegal workers. Why do we always make the business owner suffer? Why not punish the customers as well? Let's make a law that also punishes customers who patronize businesses who hire illegals. How would you like it if the feds swooped in while you're eating at your local mexican restaurant and arrested you while you're finishing your burrito?

You're confused. Conservatives are the ones who propose govt solutions to the "problem" of illegal immigration like fences on the border and crackdowns on businesses hiring illegals (as if businesses don't have enough to worry about already). Libertarians are the only ones in favor of free market solutions. For example we need get rid of the massive govt expense involved in hiring a legal worker. Get rid of payroll taxes and discrimination laws for example. If it costs the same to hire a legal worker compared to an illegal worker, businesses would hire the legal one. Also get rid of the drug laws, that's one reason illegal immigrants come over here, to sell illegal drugs.

I agree. When our currency finally collapses under the weight of all our debt and money printing, these interventionist arguments are going to sound silly.

"taking the money out of getting elected" is a huge violation of the first amendment. That will give all the power to incumbents and whichever candidate the media supports. The solution is to stop the government from handing out favors in the first place.

I'm not going to worry about the Terminator until it happens. Taking the next step in technology is not always linear. We're still basically riding in cars that have not really changed fundamentally since the car was invented over 100 years ago. Wasn't it about 40 years ago that scientists thought they could create life from carbon compounds? They got to a certain point and then it stalled out. Battery technology is moving at a very slow pace. Not everything is progressing at a geometric pace.

After the crash of 2008 a lot of conservatives realized the libertarians were right. Ron Paul for example had been warning about the dangers of excess government and the housing bubble for years. When the next big crash, the dollar crash hits, even more conservatives will become libertarians.

As far as I can tell the main difference between libertarians and conservatives is that libertarians rank individual liberty as the most important goal, conservatives rank other things higher like religion for example.
