This Is Utopian Capitalism

I've often said to libertarians who say you can't judge it, as no state has adopted it as a model of government; that there is an example to judge.  Somalia.  For years, Somalia was a libertarian dream.  No functioning state at all, no rules to harsh your buzz.

We've created a few libertarian paradise destinations since then, in parts of Afghanistan and Iraq.

The United States populace does not appear ignorant enough to completely fall for this infantile vision of absolutely no oppressive government; with its taxes and regulations and humanity for others.

But many Republican voters are eager to submit to the conservative vision of the United States.  One of supplication to Wall Street.  One of constant and brutal austerity measures for the plebs, and a Trumpian, gold-plated existence for the royal class.

The new Republican health "care" plan is an example; a massive wealth transfer from the poor to the rich; and it all costs is the lives of the poor, sick, and elderly.

Here is another example.
