  • All Libertarians, answer the questions and be not afraid. What are some of the most common services provided by government that can be replaced by privatization? What is your proposal for implementing these services? Suggested topics: Security, Monetary supply, and of course Roads; every libertarian’s favorite subject.

  • Banks have been blamed for having fractional reserves, instead of 100% reserves. What’s your opinion?

  • Dear Liberty.me’ers: I thought I’d reach out and see if any of you would be interested in a project I’ve been working on. I have set up a way to make a gold account interface with the modern electronic banking system. You get all of the convenience of modern banking, without the inherent, umm…. risks, difficulties, dare I say, fraudulence? You keep your savings in gold, and you pay everyone else in dollars. And that’s always a good principle: keep your assets in a sound currency, and your liabilities in an unsound one. The gold is vaulted in Switzerland. So instead of going through lots of rigamarole selling gold, going to a dealer, paying a big percentage, etc., you can just *spend your gold*! Instantly! My company is Midas. I’ve set up a bare-bones placeholder site at: http://Midas.gold Here’s a rough informational brochure I made: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mdz6ev6pqua61lw/Midas%2Belectronic%2Bbrochure.pdf?dl=0 Let me know if you would be interested in getting such a card.  I am just looking for a few beta-testers.

  • Fellow Liberty Lovers, Since 1913, we all know that the Federal Reserve and IRS have been working hand in hand to outright steal the money out of our pockets for their own interests in the form of “voluntary tax”. We also clearly know that should we choose not to pay the Federal Income Tax, along with any state income, or whatever they can come up with, would result in them potentially emptying our bank accounts, showing up to our door, intimidating and harassing all of us in a militarized fashion as they have with some individuals. However, some have managed to legally evade taxes altogether, gotten the IRS to leave them alone, and live somewhat of a free life not having to be extorted every April. For those on here that have gotten there, what have you done besides invoking the 4th, 5th, and 10th Amendment? What did you do or say to those who called your phone to harass you? What did you do if you knew some government bureaucrat hacked into your bank account and took a huge portion of your money? What did you do if some agent appeared out of nowhere to your door? And what did you do when they audited you? It’s ironic, that I as many would consider a member of the government mafia, would be asking my friends this question. But like you, I want to see everyone keeping all their money, not for bureaucrats to steal it when you worked in the hardest and smartest (ethical) way possible for it.
