Liberty is not a means to a political end. It is itself the highest political end.
- Lord Acton

The ideal Government of all reflective men, from Aristotle onward, is one which lets the individual alone one which barely escapes being no government at all.
- H.L. Mencken

So apparently the Libertarian Party USA is attempting to change its logo, and had a contest a few days ago. I am kicking myself for not knowing about this earlier, although quite frankly, beyond simplifying it, I don't think the logo needs much change. We'll see in hopefully a few hours who wins, although I think there will be a backlash quite similar to the GAP logo. The New York chair, for example, expressed similar misgivings. IMO this is a really bad idea, because now all their old branding stuff is out to date. Not to mention the 50 states also have to change theirs to match...

Here I am. Sorry about my insanely high tax rates, it seems the game automatically assumes good civil rights means tax rates through the roof.

Nah, you can have both. Like me.

You know how conservatives are always thumping around the message "freedom isn't free" (usually as an excuse to justify whatever war they are waging at the moment)? Well I say that's BS. Freedom IS free - the government just artificially makes it expensive.

The United States military has been in decline, both as a proportion of the economy and in terms of aircraft, ships and so on, for 50 years.

The next President will inherit a military that is in a state of collapse - around 3% of GDP (under Ike and Kennedy it was well over 10%) a lot of which is not even spent on military matters (it is spent on all sorts of nonsense), and with fewer submarines (and so on) than China.

I wish my fellow libertarians would stop writing as if was 1960 - when most Federal government spending really was on the military, it is not now (most government spending is on the Welfare State), we must focus on the modern situation - not the situation of 50 or 60 years ago.

For the record - I do think that "nation building" wars in the Islamic world (Afghanistan, Iraq and so on) are an utter waste of human lives. These wars are based on the false view that the problem in these countries is a few nasty terrorists - in reality it is the general population of these countries that is no good (the situation is hopeless).

But try and explain that to people and they just scream "racist" at you - as if Islam was a race.

Pull out - no good is done by trying to civilise the warriors of the Sunni or the Shia. I know it sounds harsh (it is harsh) - but just let them slaughter each other.

As a Muslim myself, I won't call you racist, but I can tell you that what you say is not entirely true. The people doing all this fighting is a tiny minority, in most countries 1% or less, but I do agree it is none of the U.S.'s business on how we take care of our criminals. Islam is not inherently bad, that's like saying Christianity is inherently bad because Catholics decided to slaughter thousands of innocent Muslims, Jews, and even non-Catholic Christians in the Crusades and Spanish Inquisition. We have fallen on hard times however, and the U.S. invading countries repeatedly on very weak basis' is not helping.

Also, I must correct you on your comment on military spending; while military spending is significantly lower than it used to be, it is still the highest on the budget list. That also includes weapons which go straight to Israel, however, so I don't know how it would look after you took that out.
