  • Re: Why is U.S. health care more expensive & worse than other countries?

    anyone who believes the infant mortality / life expectancy is a reliable statistic needs to do some research before speaking... the way infant mortality is measured across the world is apples/oranges.. i wish people ( all of us) who have the energy to post "facts" in forums would also have the energy to look into every freaking static and

  • Re: Intellectual response to socialism/big benevolent government??

    "Much of what appears “natural” today dates from the 1980s: the obsession with wealth creation, the cult of privatisation and the private sector, the growing disparities of rich and poor. And above all the rhetoric which accompanies these: uncritical admiration for unfettered markets, disdain for the public sector, the delusion of endless

  • Re: Is it likely Obama will trick Iran or North Korea into firing the first shot?

    Venezuala? Its sick. No one ever questions why we rip on them constantly. There are a LOT of brown bogeymen in south america, let alone the world. No one seems to think its strange that we focus almost exclusively on him. Its all lies too. i very pro AE and see a lot that is right with libertarianism - but i get tired of " everything pro america

  • Re: Thank God I found Mises

    WOW - I feel like an old fart- I guess to you I am.. I'm 44 and been reading for about 7-8 years. I just want to say this: regardless of ALL the other ideas, philosophies, "truths" etc.etc. there is one thing that I have learned beyond a shadow of a doubt: 95% ++ of everything government does turns to shit and hurts more people

  • Re: Hello! Defector Here!

    Drace, I’m not sure what country you are in/from. But living in several states in the US I can not relate to the view of “working class poverty”. I believe with all my heart and head and have so much evidence in front of my face everyday (myself and family included) that a person of average intelligence willing to work a bit and not
