But whatever. If you think it's OK for the government to sit on it's collective hands or actively try to injure you despite what the Constitution says then nothing I say will matter.[/quote]
Sir...by the sounds of it you don't like to be told to do anything, your way is the right way/only way and if anyone has a modicum of difference from your view they are communist/socialist/marxist or whatever, label you can come up with.
Diplomacy in your venture to "pursuade" others in your ideology would take you a long way!
I haven't called anyone any names. You talk about what I've said to my boss. I have a degree in machining and nearly 20 years of experience on shop floors. My boss was a mechanical engineer. Which one of us would you reckon knows how to cut titanium or Monel 400 in a safe and efficient manner?
I didn't tell him how to draw pretty pictures with SolidWorks. I told him why it was impossible to produce his pretty pictures in the real world.
Solid Works will tell you (maybe) if you have a problem. In the real would, you destroy a $1500 boring bar or a 60 lb slug of stainless steel comes crashing through the window of your machine at a high rate of speed.
Same thing with what we are talking about here. When you have read and studied and argued as much about economics and monetary policy as I have, then you can tell me I'm wrong.
Go to http://www.mises.org
and visit the book store. I own most of it. Curl up on the couch with Rothbard, Mises, and whomever else you find there and then we can talk.
I'm not trying to "persuade" anybody of anything. I learned a long time ago that that's an impossible mission. A person has to WANT to know and then go find out for themselves. I'm not going to convince you, and you aren't going to convince me.[/quote]
Reading a website and a few books makes an expert? Come on! I realize you "believe' your arguments are flawless....but, reading, studying and arguing your ideology put you no further ahead than anyone else....Getting supporters in the afformentioned and moving to "act' on that support to make a "difference" depends on the "$$$$" you have to make that happen! Please save us with your infamous knowledge and wisdom good sir! We need all the guidance we can get!
