First , thanks for the joke ,Stevie!!!<quoted text>I would like to get your opinion on this. What is the one thing that cannot happen if someone says he believes in liberty? I believe there must only be violence used against a person in cases where he uses violence himself or violates the property rights of another. Each time government passes a law it enforces it ultimately with violence. There are many laws that have nothing to do with protecting the property rights of others so the more government involves itself in our lives expands the potential for violence to be used against us. The only reason we do not usually see government resorting to violence is the same reason Al Capone did not usually need to resort to violence when extorting money. The threat of violence alone was enough to gain compliance just as our government gains compliance over us. It seems limiting the scope of government in our lives is the only way to ensure liberty.
Second, if you think the Gov`t is any different from Al Capone, how about trying to deny the I.R.S. anything? They know we are all scared to death of them!!
