Libertarian Ideas: The Phony Philosophy

The 1% would never permit truly limited government or a free market to exist.  It would mean the elimination of NAFTA, CAFTA and all the other trade agreements as well as the downsizing of the War Entitlement Complex.  Wall Street would have a collective fainting spell.

Perhaps we could summarize the regulations libertarians would apply to the 99% in a very short statement:  “Shut up and keep working, fella.”  Now wouldn’t that make Wall Street happy.  Think the powers that be would never let it come to that?  Think Asia.
