Re: "no libertarians in the 17th century highlands"

If young healthy people refuse to purchase government subsidized over priced health insurance we will force them to buy it or take their money and call it a tax.

More deLong:

 

"Dismantling the New Deal and rolling back the social insurance state were not ideas that had much potential political-economy juice back in the 1950s and 1960s. But if the economic libertarian cause of dismantling the New Deal could be harnessed to the cause of white supremacy—if one of the key liberties that libertarians were fighting to defend was the liberty to discriminate against and oppress the Negroes—than all of a sudden you could have a political movement that might get somewhere. And so James Buchanan and the other libertarians to the right of Milton Friedman made the freedom to discriminate—or perhaps the power to discriminate?—a key one of the liberties that they were fighting for in their fight against BIG GOVERNMENT. And this has poisoned American libertarianism ever since."

I don`t think there`s any worry about "Libertarians taking over" anytime soon, the white, taxpaying 21st century slaves are chained pretty well. The 2/3 wolves voting in this demockracy keep the 1/3 of us sheep in line....yeah what is it "Trump approval 33%"  time is on YOUR side.   Of course there`s something about "killing the golden goose".

Oh. Libertarians are racist. Got it. At least that what this guy said back in 2013. I guess if anything they're more racist today than they were then.
