Every living thing has Free Will - yes, even plants and slime molds. They have sentient awareness, while we have conscious awareness. Sentient awareness always finds the balance point; conscious awareness wants to control, and throws everything off-balance. Conscious awareness can plan and stuff, ,but needs to be open to change based on sentient awareness. The forest is chaotic, but maintains equilibrium. Control always produces the opposite of what was intended. Intellect is there to plan and observe, but must be flexible and open to change. God's Will is Free Will Freedom is my Worshiip Word!
"how come there haven't been any libertarian countries yet," Because we just thought it up about 40 or 50 years ago, and this is the first time anybody's even had a chance to try it! Ever!

Yeah, well, I just turned 65, all my electronics and computer skills are obsolete, and SS is all I've got! When they started just taking it out of my paycheck 47 years ago, they not only didn't ask if I wanted to participate, they CERTAINLY didn't tell me it was a Ponzi scam! So what's the solution for old farts like me, stuck between a rock and a broke place?

A Fair Critique of the Fair Tax

Since taxation is theft, there is no such thing as a "fair" tax. And the "Flat" tax is nothing but lipstick on the income tax The proper answer is to privatize everything, legalize all drugs as Portugal has done, and let all services be paid for by the people who use them. The only government that's needed, really, is the land office (Registrar of Deeds) and a roads committee. Write me in in 2016: http://rich_grise.tripod.com - I'll fire the whole damn government!
There really shouldn't be any such thing as a "permit," since according to the Constitution, the Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms Shall Not Be Infringed. Constitutional Carry or Fightt!

The laws should be reset to pre-reefer madness levels, i.e zero. There were NO problems until Da Gubmint started the bullying.

What possible benefit could conceivably come from criminalizing people who have done no harm?

" Legal pot is not competitively priced," If you actually believe this, then you are an idiot of the first water. Legality is PRECISELY what causes competitive pricing!

From the income tax to socialized medicine in only a century - welcome to the United Socialist States of America!
Remind me again - which of the enumerated powers was it that authorizes the government to dictate "moral standards?"
