Napolitano, liberty, and "anarchism"

First of all, many thanks to John Stossel for having this debate on television. Having two intelligent and well-motivated people discuss the appropriate role of (limited) government to an appreciative and informed audience is a treat that I never thought that I would see!

I have no idea of what political ambitions Judge Napolitano has, but he would make an excellent candidate for President if for some reason Ron Paul could not run in 2012! Even if his apparent support for a variety of anarchism was controversial to some voters (even libertarian voters), it would put ideas before the public which have been suppressed or neglected for far too long.

Since this government is hell-bent on self-destruction anyway, and seems to be determined to take as many of the rest of us down with it, it behooves us to encourage as many people as possible to at least try to "think outside the box", and offer non governmental, voluntary and nonpolitical ways of doing what government has so dismally and destructively failed to do.

Get as many people out of this burning building which the USA (and its government) has so obviously become as quickly and humanely as possible!!

Once again, Thank you Mr. Stossel, thank you Messrs. Napolitano and O'Rourke, and thank you to the libertarians whose questions enlivened a challenging and important debate on political and economic subjects which have been ignored by too many people with appalling results, for far too long!
