Correct me where I’m wrong, but isn’t funding the actual creation of the land on which the country is to start the very definition of big government? And, since the type of government is pre-determined rather than being voted into existence, isn’t it a totalitarian large government? I fail to see how these islands could in any way be considered libertarian.
Just goes to show that most of today’s self-proclaimed libertarians are most definitely not libertarians.
Ditto for the Tea Party, but for different reasons. They are not libertarians. They are anarchists. Abolishing all levels of government is not libertarianism. It is anarchy.
Further, if they want to shrink government, long before they get to the chump change of abolishing public education and NASA, they should abolish the $3 trillion in spending on the 3 wars we don’t need to be in.
I have no problem with libertarians of like mind with Robert A. Heinlein. I don’t agree with the late Mr. Heinlein’s views. But, they are views I can respect. This idiot creating islands and the tea baggers are people whose views are so self-inconsistent that I can’t even begin to give them even a modicum of respect.
As Jon Stewart said, “we still have traffic lights.” And, some of us would like to keep it that way.
