Give up Bill, you can't argue with anarcho-capitalists (Utopians) or someone who prefers logic to wisdom (as many Libertarians do), or someone who believes that the States job is to protect your rights (government protects nothing but it's own existence), it's pointless man.
Let's say I live in a secluded town of 500 people, each of whom is a bible believing God fearing Christian (if you know of such a place please provide a map). We all decided, as a community, to pass an ordinance prohibiting business, any business, to be conducted on Sundays. Or better yet, we passed an ordinance which prohibits any doctor who cares to practice in our happy little community, from providing at will abortion services. What will be the fate of our community? I'll tell you. Those who have been down voting your post and saying you know nothing of freedom (or similarly misguided individuals), will mount their high horses of Libertarian Justice and come quickly riding in to town.
The relative peace and happiness that was our norm will be replaced by impoverishing legal entanglements, Orwellian controls and regulations, and endless mindnumbing challenges to our faith and freedom. In the end they will have destroyed those very things they intended to protect, mainly life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And they will do all of this because of their simple misunderstanding of what it means to be free, and from Whom it is those freedoms truly originate.
