Hey, more teenager-car-irresponsibility quotes!
The libertarian who insists that the state has no place beyond basic night-watchman duties is like a teenager who, having been given a car, promptly starts demanding the right to stay out all night.
This response from Reason to the salon.com article about Rand Paul, and basically, how immature libertarianism is, is pretty great. I thought they were both interesting. We posted about old Randie P earlier this week.
I read/listened to Paul’s comments and he hasn’t said anything too inflammatory, in my opinion. I, too, support any law that stops “legalized and institutional racism”–that stops laws that discriminate. I also agree that assholes should have the right to be assholes, because those are free speech issues: even if those assholes are racists.
