    It's not perfect... But this is how the parties are coming across in this day and age from a economics standpoint.

    Republicans = Feudalism
    Democrats = Socialism
    Libertarians = What America was 150 years ago.

    well...the problem is that if we could get by, by cutting wood for heat and cooking, growing our own food, using oil lamps for a light source, horse and buggies for.transportation....then we could do what we used to.

    Be that as it may....I find it amusing that you agreed with me that America was too large and dynamic to be pigeonholed into two parties....but then you turn around and start a thread like this...so either you really don't agree with your own OP, or you're just stirring shit up.

    What's changed so much that we can't go by those same laws? Why did we have to add more?

    You be the judge. I put myself out there so you can. that's the whole point.

    The south 150 years ago generally fit the libertarian mode, when states rights meant that they could own human beings.

    The rest of what you posted is nonsense.

    Its spot on. In a voluntary society no man would own another. The south was not a libertarian society it was more of a small government republican type society.

    You are wrong, as usual.

    In a libertarian society (the flip side of a communist one), the "societies of equals" will own the weaker human beings.
