self-ownership: It’s bad enough when the leader of a country has the authority to indefinitely detain citizens within its own borders. But I live in a nation where people go on the internet and call that leader cute and adorable.
A list of countries with indefinite detention:

Just voted for Ron Paul in the NY Primary
His name was first on the ballot.
Wanna hear a joke?
antinwo: “The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation,” Obama in 2007 before continuing the Afghanistan and Iran wars, instigating Iraq, uranium bombing Libya, killing Ghadaffi, Mubarak, al-Awlaki & his 16 year old son (both U.S. citizens),...

My American Government professor just lectured us on active/passive voice. Apparently, active voice is: The dog ran. and passive voice is: The dog would have run. Our education system is JUST FINE….
The federal reserve simplified:
anticapitalist: A bunch of rich white bankers and ex-CEOs of big corporations who try to stop the big banks and corporations from exploiting the common man by printing loads of money and giving it to big banks and corporations. You should already be suspicious. It doesn’t help that Quantitative and Qualitative Easing are debunked ideas. Printing money and giving it to the richest...

War on Drugs: Obama vs Ron Paul
notquitecharlotte: Obama: “I don’t think legalization of drugs is going to be the answer.” Ron Paul: “The drug war encourages violence. Government violence against nonviolent users is notorious and has led to the unnecessary prison population. Innocent taxpayers are forced to pay for all this so-called justice. Our drug eradication project (using spraying) around the world, from Colombia...

logicallypositive: 1 - The U.S. tax code is now 3.8 million words long. If you took all of William Shakespeare’s works and collected them together, the entire collection would only be about 900,000 words long. 2 - According to the National Taxpayers Union, U.S. taxpayers spend more than 7.6 billion hours complying with federal tax requirements.

statehate: Only racist redneck white supremacists support Ron Paul. And yet, at this Ron Paul rally at UCLA, I’m pretty sure that I see more minorities than whites. There are Hispanics, black people, Asians, Arabs, Indians, etc. I guess they’re all racists too.
conza answered your question: I hate studying Robert Nozick Read Hoppe’s intro to TEOL. Nozick gets taken down, and all is explained as to why you are actually studying him mises.org/daily/2… Thanks so much for this response. It helped me get a real grip on why I can’t stomach Nozick. Hoppe rules and I can’t think of a more trustworthy source on the matter.
I hate studying Robert Nozick
I just can’t find heartfelt principles behind what he has written. I just don’t think he loves liberty the way most of us do. It seems like he loves it because he figured out a way to justify it, thus serving his own egotistical ends. This is partially influenced by what Rothbard had to say about him. Any thoughts?

Anonymous asked: Can you make a list of the way in which our government has infringed upon our civil liberties?
Yesterday I made a bet with my dad.
If the election is between Romney and Obama, and Obama wins, he’ll give me $100. If Romney wins, I’ll give him $100 in addition to cooking and eating one of my socks. There is literally no way that anyone besides Ron Paul beats Obama. I am that certain of it.
Obama and Romney should just agree to run together...
It would save a lot of time and money, and we’d end up with the same policies regardless.
