What I find funny as hell is some moron with the Barr campaign listed my blog as one of the Blogs for Barr- http://blog.bobbarr2008.com/ (look on the right side of the page about half way down under bloggers and you will see my name "Mike Wasdin") oh you poor fools...
Bob Barr recently said he’s running for the office of US president in order to “rekindle peoples faith in government”. That is an anti-libertarian agenda.
Only a fool or a villain would want to restore people’s faith in government — because both the supposed moral legitimacy and the supposed practical utility of government are lies. Myths. Tall tales. Whoppers. Bullshit.

Central bankers devised a way of taking physical possession of all of the stocks in every Initial Public Offering (as far as I can tell it seems like _ALL_). This allows for selected entities (broker friends etc.) to use the stocks as “collateral” in such a way that they are counterfeited into many many many many times their value into ‘the market’ (Example, for the scale of this: $75 Trillion in worldwide real estate value, $50 Trillion in worldwide annual Gross Domestic Product - $675 Trillion in estimated “derivative value”)
Sooner or later someone is going to want to see the actual stock that they purchased or whatever is being used as collateral. Well, this has been going on in Europe unknown to the general public in America for many months in an attempt to lessen the damage to Europe’s Economy.
One philosophical abstraction that seems to befuddle most people is "anarchy." To those challenged by complexity – such as radio talk show hosts and cable-TV "newscasters" who are convinced that all political opinions can be confined to the categories of "liberal" and "conservative" – the word anarchy evokes an unfocused fear of uncertain forces. Images of bomb-throwing thugs who smash and burn the property of others are routinely conjured up by politicians and the media to frighten people into an extension of police authority over their lives. "Disorder" and "lawless confusion" are common dictionary definitions of this word.

The story reads "American citizens cheating the government out of Billions" What a fucking joke! Cheating the government? How is it cheating to find a way to keep a thief from stealing from you? People found away to keep the Nazi bastards of the IRS from stealing their money, good for them, I applaud them! Fuck the IRS!

Here is the essential reading on anarcho-capitalism, which might also be called the natural order, private-property anarchy, ordered anarchy, radical capitalism, the private-law society, or society without a state. This is not intended to be a comprehensive list. Indeed, only English-language works currently in print or forthcoming are included.

This year, there aren't any gas lines (though stay tuned), but the price seems outrageous; and in particular, its rate of increase recently has been amazing. Once again, establishment media offer no credible explanation; reports of gas prices often follow weather information, which seems quite appropriate since they have little idea what causes either. But this time, there's a difference: I've not yet seen a fully credible explanation of what's going on even in libertarian literature. That's a first.

Although I disagree with all the nutty "god" references in this, it is still a good read and makes good points.
Contrary to popular myth, the men who signed the Declaration of Independence were not great Americans. Instead, they were great Englishmen. In fact, they were as much English citizens as Americans today are American citizens. It’s easy to forget that the revolutionaries in 1776 were people who took up arms against their own government.
So how is it that these men are considered patriots? Well, the truth is that their government didn’t consider them patriots at all. Their government considered them to be bad guys – traitors, all of whom deserved to be hanged for treason.

"Ha! I kill me!" Unfortunately, the death of hundreds of thousands of people in Iraq is not metaphorical.
"...the rulers of the states are the most criminal group in a respective population. With a limitation of their power their criminality tends to decrease; but it still remains exceptionally high in all nations."
