Hello again CalGunners, just when you thought it was safe to log onto the forum again....I'm baaaack!

Thanks to the moderators for letting me re-sign up. It was fun messing around on the "close my account" thread.

Seriously though, I'm glad to be onboard with all of you. I've been reading the forum for a while but only recently purchased my first firearm, AK from Cold War Shooters (thanks Chris!). Currently on day 4 of my 10 days of torture:drool5:

As for my political inclinations, I suppose you could call me a Libertarian with Anarcho-Capitalist leanings. I believe government is a hinderance on society as a whole. I also believe the private sector can do anything the government does BETTER and CHEAPER. I believe taxes are theft and that all humans should be allowed to live their lives as they see fit, provided they don't interfere with the freedoms of others.

Well, that's me in a nutshell. Nice to be a part of the club!

Alex

The problem is not taxes, which are necessary, but how they are used -- Would you prefer to have a paid fire dept that only responds if you provide a cash prepayment? --

I wouldn't mind if the Fire Dept. gave me priority over a section 8 domicile
if I had cash in hand. :TFH:

In my experience there are things that the government can and does do better than private sector..particularly in the defense industry but .. not worth arguing about. Welcome aboard!

I have no problem with that. I would feel much better being responsible for making payments to the agencies I see fit to serve my needs.....instead of letting the government extort the money from me and not giving me say regarding where it's spent.

Well, that's because of the monopoly the gov has in that sector. Government is accountable to no one except, well, the government. The private sector is accountable to it's customers. If a private business does not do its job well, customers leave and find another agency that can do the job. Competition is good.....the State HAS NO COMPETITION.
