Ron Paul explains why the war raging over tax cuts is dividing the GOP.
Have you noticed it is always the fat ones in thousand dollar suits that are against helping anyone?

Did you know they use Ron Paul's philosophy in the Jungle where they PAY NO TAXES. You just get eaten at the first sign of weakness. Great system.

it'sa...(back to beginning)
Let's face it folks, until the free food, unemployment and other benefits stop and the riots begin nothing will change.
We are going to lose America if we don't act now..The Fed is going to start taking possession of Federally owned land to cover the "mmoney we can't pay back...It is a lie..The FED printed green paper they never loaned us anything, they cannot be allowed to forclose on real property, land, for non-payment of fake paper money they were allowed to print. That is it, they were allowed to print our money, nothing more, the FED never loaned America or the American people anything. Go to City Council !
I know Dr. Paul's platform because I campaigned for him. I simply don't believe the justice system is a good system for environmental issues. At any rate, it was interesting talking to you. I always like talking to my libertarian friends and try to get to see environmental regulation as compatible with libertarianism.
I see we have found common ground here... What myself and millions of libertarians, including Ron Paul supporters, are fighting for is a government that lives up to its constitutional function of, as you said, "punishing those who harm others through their recklessness." That is the function of our justice system, as you can see, it has been politicized. It is the neo-con faction of the Tea Party we stand against. Look into Ron Paul's platform.
I do not intend to prevent moral use of property. That is the backbone of liberty. I simply seek to prevent the irresponsible and harmful use of property that harms all individuals and their property. As for Cap and Tax, I do not favor the specific system. I simply favor punishing those who harm others through their recklessness.
PART 2; Good luck with your fight, just do not use the force of government to curtail my or others moral use of our property, that would be immoral. I hope you are not behind this Cap and Tax scheme, don't kill my chance to the good life
Of course the courts have failed; the courts have been politicized... The only time the courts will work is when we hold the government to constitutional standards. The fight you are fighting is flawed in that everything changes from election to election. Yes, land owners wish to do things cheaply but do you feel that it is their interest to destroy their own property?
Wrong. Landowners have a vested interest in doing things cheaply. This means putting the pollution costs on others. Easy access to resources, sewage stored or dumped easily, no controls on air emissions. Conservation groups have no power. Governments are the only way to prevent one landowner from harming another by emitting pollution. The only reason businesses are remotely accountable now is because of things like the Clean Air Act or Clean Water Act. The courts have failed.
PART 2 ; Libertarians on the Environment; we support a clean and healthy environment and sensible use of our natural resources. Private landowners and conservation groups have a vested interest in maintaining natural resources. Pollution and misuse of resources cause damage to our ecosystem. Governments, unlike private businesses, are unaccountable for such damage done to our environment and have a terrible track record when it comes to environmental protection.

"It's always good to produce and sell more. That isn't sustainable". I think you are speaking of the present market problems which were caused by Keynesians Economists (Not free market advocates). In a truly free market, the flow of goods and services is natural. A free market is self regulating when cash reserves are low, individual banks raise interest rates to attract capital. When individual banks have an excess of cash, they lower rates so as to loan it.
Economic growth is currently often irresponsible. Growth in GDP is equated with always being good. Its always good to produce and sell more. That isn't sustainable. It also comes with environmental consequences. This is something that libertarians are not often willing to confront.
I do not want people to starve. I just think that this bill is fiscally irresponsible. Tax cuts for the rich will not help much and even if we did it would mean greater debt for our children.
What does economic growth have to due with "the sudden end of society"? You can have both, clean earth and economic growth... Why do you want all of us to starve.
Answer me this. Would you exchange 1,000 years of great economic growth for the sudden end of society after those 1,000 years? I understand the importance of economic growth but there are more important things like the stability of the nation and the environment. If we cut taxes to 0 but still spend trillions, our nation will fail. If we promote economic progress without regard to the environment then our grandchildren will not reap any benefits.
