I don't know.  I'd like to chat with him some more before making that call.  He comes from Shreveport, LA, southern populist country, so he may be a third-front voter.  He has expressed some anti-corporatist sentiments, and he may be a 99 per center, a Bernie Sanders supporter, or he might be a Trump supporter.  That side of politics is confused, and confusing right now.

RW doesn't mean much anymore, there have been so many factions and splinters out of what was the Republican Party.  Just last month, as a majority party in Congress, they couldn't even get it together enough to repeal Obamacare...their signature promise.  Maybe Ben knows more about his politics.

Ben does know his political leanings and he is RW as far as I remember being told.
That's why I said it.

Oh and I read his posts too.

So few posts.  I'd like to hear more.

We have straight forward Democrats and Republicans, but so few of these new populist politicos that pub Trump in office...and were behind Sanders.  There's a movement afoot, and I'd like to know more.

Cool

No need to Google anything, for anyone who has actually studied ECONOMICS at either Uni' and /or senior high school level...

Laissez Faire approaches to free market economic policies :

* "Let the markets look after themselves", and 'beggar thy neighbour' --  anyone who can't find the means to feed and shelter themselves should be left to starve in the streets;
*  No place for government regulations, "taxation is theft", no welfare,  no police or defence forces;
*  'Charity is for suckers';  and "greed is good";
*  Pure capitalism at it's very worst..
*  'Survival of the fittest'.

Totally individualistic...complete denial of man's social existence.

What I wonder about these types is, why do they choose to live in the midst of society?  If they are so dedicated to individualism, why are they not existing on a mountaintop in Tibet?

I've never heard of a libertarian who truly wants to be liberated from the constraints of society. They just want to rig the system in their favor, while enjoying the benefits they would deny others.
