Yes to all six questions or just the last one? I'm trying to understand
what you're advocating but a one word answer doesn't help. At any rate,
what you're suggesting is not in any way libertarian, which I thought you
claimed to be.


Well, OK, so that was a bit tongue in cheek, to see just what I would get.
Sorry if that insulted you.

There are times when my libertarian leanings conflict with my liberal
ones.  I don't believe that Uncle Scrooge's should be able to just sit on
billions and not put it into circulation in some form (which they very
likely do, like stocks and bonds).  And I am concerned about 50 million
people just sitting at home waiting for the job market to do something.

If you are a purist libertarian, then I am not your cup of tea.  We have to
have taxes and not just for police and military.  The country has people
who are not getting good food, good medical care etc. and we can afford
it!  But only we tax properly and no, I don't know just what that is.  I
know what end results I want but not the best way to get there.

I would not cut heirs out nor confiscate businesses.  Estate taxes?  Yes.

Me?  Why not me?  Yeah, put me in charge.
