He is the poster boy for everything the Republican Liberty Caucus and the Liberatarian Party believe in (minus and issue or two depending on which of the two you belong to) and people disrespect him all of the time. We are our own worst enemies anymore.
He is also the poster boy for criminalizing American soldiers in battle.
In that arena, O’bama has taken his cues from the Ron Paul.
Some flaws can not be glossed over.
I read that book. Good one. Basically, our government doesn’t like big corporations, and simply assumes that when they join with eachother or cut deals, it’s “in restraint of trade”. More often than not, the only ones hurt are weak competitors.
But who cares about them, anyway? Isn’t it about the consumers? No, it’s not. It’s about applying the wildly misguided assumptions of perfect competition theory, reality be damned!
This was an interesting video - I’ve always been a bit torn about anti-trust laws myself. Thanks for posting.
On a side note, Armentano’s hair is awesome. Oh, the 80’s...
since when is advocating we shouldn’t be the policement of the world ‘criminalizing’ soldiers? american interventionalisms have not historically produced mentionable results.
