Not only are these conjunctures a distraction from real libertarian principles, it is completely harmful towards the movement.
Whats the difference between:
1)The government can make Obama Care work. (liberal)
2)The government can make the military industrial complex work.(Neo-con)
3)The government can engineer a huge conspiracy involving a school shooting. (conspiracy beleiver)
All three statist views put an inordinate amount of faith in the government's ability to do something well.
