If every educated American were asked to choose between Al Capone and John Dillinger as their primary protector almost everyone would reject both.
Politics is all and always about power and control.
Obamacare isn't about healthcare, medical insurance or human wellbeing; it's about power and control.
Gun restrictions aren't about gun violence, gun rights or safety; they're about power and control.
Environmentalism isn't about clean energy, clean air or climate change; it's about power and control.
Anti same-sex marriage isn't about protecting the "sanctity" of marriage; it's about power and control.
Every law that's needed to ensure a fair and free society is contained in and implied by the libertarian Zero Aggression Principle. Virtually every law imposed on us by the Republican – Democrat ruling class is all about power and control.
The intentions, the goals, the reasons, the justifications, the high-minded public spirited good intentions of those who pass laws are never about what they say they're about.
They're always about gaining more power and control by the Corrupted Classes for the purpose of satisfying their own cravings for more power and control.
If politicians really cared about our wellbeing, our safety, our freedoms, our futures, they would ban government from our personal lives.
Think: if government protects us from harm who will protect us from our protectors?
Government is itself a criminal organization that imposes harm on everyone for the benefit of its rulers.
Here's a statement that equally describes the fundamental goal of both Democrats and Republicans:
"We want to gain and control the raw coercive power of big government and use it to impose our own ideology on the entire population of the United States."
The blind followers of these two parties aid and abet them with every vote.
Every issue and policy these twin parties publically fight over is nothing more than superficial eyewash designed to keep their blind followers blind and following.
America's government ruling class is a two-headed snake. One head is named Democrat and the other is named Republican. Supporting and believing in one head while demonizing and cutting off the other head still leaves you with a snake.
Those who never learn the simple reality of libertarianism are drowning in snake oil.
