Dave, if you understand anything about free market capitalism, you would not have made that statement. Any market that is regulated is not a free market. The word "free" indicates that it is free from govt interference, something that has not been the case in well over 100 years. This market is a crony capitalist, or fascist, market meaning that big business and govt are in bed together. Big business petitions the govt, pays big bucks to the govt, and even writes the bills for the govt to suppress competition from the upstart companies.

Ah, yes. Hate the current generation of Japanese for the sins of their grandfathers and great grandfathers. By that reasoning, I suppose the blacks and the Indians should hate us for the way our GG to GGGG grandparents treated their ancestors.

If you studied the philosophy of libertarianism, you would understand that Ron Paul's aim is to reduce the size of the federal govt so much that it could no longer be a threat to our freedoms and rights. That means sticking to the things the Constitution allows like protecting the country from outside aggression, protecting individual rights, representing the states in trade disputes with other states and countries. If the govt stuck to those allowed tasks, people would be free to grow their businesses and create jobs without govt interference. That's where your jobs are going to come from.

@zacncat@Rae Liera I can see zacncat's point., which is the fear that without a majority of framers of the new constitution being liberty-minded in the libertarian sense, we face the theoretical danger of creating a fascist govt, for example. Also, unless a supermajority of the states agree to disband, then with a strong progressive centralized govt desiring to hold on to its power at all cost, we may see a battle a la Lincoln and the Civil War, where he was willing to destroy the country, if need be, to hold it together.Since this country seems to be on a runaway train towards collapse, an option may be to hold a non-binding liberty convention and redesign the constitution as Rae suggested with the idea to drag it out at the appropriate time and gain support for a new constitution for a reconstituted and smaller country.
