But something bothers me.  If the state (e.g. my econ professor) really believed that things like roads and water ways cannot be provided by the private (peaceful) market, why does the government have to outright prohibit competition to its own "services"?

Something I've asked many, many times, and never gotten a single answer for.

Jon Stewart NAILS it! http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/mon-august-15-2011/indecision-2012---corn-polled-edition---ron-paul---the-top-tier?xrs=share_copy

The media ignoring Ron is nothing new, but at least someone who gets a large audience is pointing out how blatant it is.

This was blatantly obvious in the 2008 elections as well, and honestly, I find this to be one of the main reasons why Ron didn't win the Republican nomination in the first place.

Also, saw this in my email from DownsizeDC.org:
"Everyone wants to live at the expense of the state. They forget that the state wants to live at the expense of everyone." Frederic Bastiat

You know, as much as people want to give flak about Stewart for being liberal I think he has a bit of a Libertarian streak in him.

He can be at times. Hell, I've even seen Bill Maher with a bit of Libertarian in him at least when talking about Ron Paul...then again he shuts that all off the second he doesn't mention him.

From the Penn Jillette article I just posted:

"It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness."
