Magic Powers

I've noticed when people start talking about politics, there's always sort of an assumption that both people debating have magic powers to put their view into place shortly after the conversation ends.

Like talking about a flat tax system or a $12 minimum wage or whatever and every body gets crazy upset, like the victor of the conversation gets to have his way in the world after the talk is done.

But even the most moderate libertarian here, say whose only anti-government stance is to reduce gasoline tax by 10%, is really just as powerless and delusional in terms of getting their way as an anarchist.

But to take your advice, I will try it out on an island first before using my powers to inflict it upon the 300,000,000 of us.
