Nutty for Liberty?
He's against it- well, he thinks it's nutty, anyway. But he suggests all the secessionists be "given" "a fenced-in section of Arizona desert — free from prickly government intrusions." I don't think a section would be near enough room since I'd feel hemmed in by that limited amount of land even if I were alone- and how does he plan to acquire this land? Steal it or buy it from the rightful owner? But we'll pretend for a moment.
His vision for my future? Well, here's what he believes life would be like inside that fence:
"...unshackled from such Big-Brother meddling as public [sic] education [sic] bank deposit guarantees, Social Security, mail deliveries, band-width regulations, safe food, water and medicine, police and military protection [sic] criminal laws and the pesky justice [sic] system, highways, licensed doctors and nursing homes, air traffic controllers, firefighters..."
Sounds pretty good to me! I'd go for it! Who says only Big Brother can provide those things? If they are really needed and wanted, someone will provide them. If they are provided consensually, subject to market forces, they will be better. They certainly can't be any worse. Most of those "services", when provided by government monopoly, have just about been driven into the ground and have failed so thoroughly that only the constant threat of "the gun in the room", and the coercive prohibition on opting out to find a better way, keeps them hanging on.
