Mr. Reeder asked for an example of where libertarian principles have been successfully applied. Libertarians believe in the rights of individuals and capitalism, the very principals that allowed the U.S. to grow and prosper. The triumph of these principles also financed the growth of the progressive welfare state until the cost of progressivism's central planning and its affect on the free market could no longer sustain it, resulting in debt that will lower the standard of living for generations to come.
I ask Mr. Reeder, or any other progressive, to give us an example of where central planning of collectivism has ever resulted in a higher standard of living than the U. S. experienced under capitalism.
