Now we're getting somewhere. He knows what they are.

Ron Paul: "He asked about Anarcho-Capitalism, and the person who's probably written the most about it is Murray Rothbard, and ahh Anarcho means "Anarchist", and ahhh, an they would essentially have no government. All government would be private. I haven't gotten to that point yet.

I would think that ahh maybe that is an ultimate goal but not for a long time to come. We have a bigger job just stopping the slide into tyranny let alone saying that ahh we can accept the notion that no government should exist. So I don't accept that, but I certainly accept the ahh minimalist approach to government with the sole purpose of protecting liberty, property, and contract, ahh today the government interferes with our property, and interferes with our contract, and they're the counterfeiters, so we should hold them accountable, but I am not an Anarcho-Capitalist."

So what is he, a fraud or what I am? I'm not yet an Anarcho-Capitalist because Anarcho-Capitalism is a HORRIBLE idea when you open your eyes to objective reality.

If the world was filled with perfect people, Anarchy would be perfectly fine. It's not.
