A background in History does

A background in History does not lend itself very well to some of the best jobs around.

Without capital or financial backing, it is not feasible to get into business in my opinion.

Look for freelance writing jobs, oDesk is a decent option.

Move to another country, teach at the Embassy schools there if you have will learn a lot...

Make YouTube videos, explaining facets of American History if History is indeed your passion. Only requires a DSLR camera and lighting. See if that opens up new opportunities.

Teaching in a public school should not be looked upon since you're getting to be part of educating the next generation. I think that is one of the greatest jobs around.

I think the libertarian disdain for anything that does not adhere closely to their principles robs them of some of the simple joys of life.
