    From the Appendix to his book, Liberty Defined


    1. Rights belong to individuals, not groups; they derive from our nature and can neither be granted nor taken away by government.

    2. All peaceful, voluntary economic and social associations are permitted; consent is the basis of the social and economic order.

    3. Justly acquired property is privately owned by individuals and voluntary groups, and this ownership cannot be arbitrarily voided by governments.

    4. Government may not redistribute private wealth or grant special privileges to any individual or group.

    5. Individuals are responsible for their own actions; government cannot and should not protect us from ourselves.

    6. Government may not claim the monopoly over a people's money and governments must never engage in official counterfeiting, even in the name of macroeconomic stability.

    7. Aggressive wars, even when called preventative, and even when they pertain only to trade relations, are forbidden.

    8. Jury nullification, that is, the right of jurors to judge the law as well as the facts, is a right of the people and the courtroom norm.

    9. All forms of involuntary servitude are prohibited, not only slavery but also conscription, forced association, and forced welfare distribution.

    10. Government must obey the law that it expects other people to obey and thereby must never use force to mold behavior, manipulate social outcomes, manage the economy, or tell other countries how to behave.

    What's the over/under on how many posts in here before Rabbi and Sniperfire show up to take precious time out of their day to post about someone as irrelevant as Ron Paul?

    The usual suspects will show up right on cue. But that's ok. Somewhere in the back of their heads, they're actually listening and learning something. They won't admit it, but it is happening.

    Yeah...and Dr. Paul talked about "avoiding" the civil war by "buying" slaves their freedom.

    There's certainly no guarantee of that.

    High on what?

    Your the one with his head up the ass of a aging delusional racist.

    You didn't even address the point I made.

    Because you can't.

    Paul is a fucking fraud.

    Like you actually read the post. Ya can't read posts with your nose buried up your Dear Leader's hairy hole. You should speak to your Dear Leader about an enema. Only way he's gonna get your nose out of there.

    I didn't see anything like a point in your post. Was there one?

    Don't bother. He's one of those creepy Obamabots who stopped reading posts a long time ago. He's an empty suit, like his Dear Leader.
