Slavery is phased out in favor of a Jim Crow style system

The US and CSA have their own "Cold War" over influence in Latin America. The next war is likely a 3 way clusterfuck between the USA, CSA, and Spain over Cuba.

The Panama Canal is either never built or significantly delayed because involvement in Panama would lead to another war.

I should point out I have an unlimited data plan.

I got into an argument on facebook over Glen Greenwald releasing the names of people the NSA has spied on. This person decided that it was hardcore zealots of Ayn Rand who created the NSA inf  the first place. When I asked for further clarification this is what I got...

Ayn Rand inspires individuals to relinquish all their support of social welfare systems. The business end of the political power landscape is the strongest arm-there is nothing that can be done to depose them. Randian ideas will, however, allow people who incorporate her philosophies into their own to be able to justify seizing what power they feel they can wield - which would be to destroy the social institutions that don't benefit the strong arm of business while simultaneously cutting taxes.

It's a kill all birds with one stone mega win for those in power, because let's be honest, business and politics are married, and they don't believe in divorce. The libertarian factor is zero threat to this arrangement from any conceivable perspective, because no group would be able to marshal enough influence to change the game.

According to what?

Token Libertarian Girl, FreedomWork's Julie Borowski, and Republican Liberty Caucus candidates from South Carolina and New Mexico addressed the prospects for the Liberty movement and the threat of Libertarian Party spoilers to Republican candidates.  One Congressman from the south opined that Libertarian Party candidates are now stealing votes and ruining elections for half a dozen GOP candidates every election - and noted that in some cases, for less libertarian GOP candidates, he didn't mind seeing this happen.  I kept waiting for one to advocate the usual Republican strategy of keeping Libertarians off the ballot but no one did.  Julie Borowski then decamped for the annual Blogger Bash across the street at a piano bar called Bobby McKay's, where she was nominated for a blogging award.

I'm not shitting on all pro-life libertarians. Abortion isn't an issue that gets my blood up. But Borowski is one of those libertarians who sound great up until election season.

I should point out that there are indeed pro-life libertarians, Julie Borowski is an example.  Of course there are always subfactions for every ideology out there.

True, although Borowski is a Republican shill.
