" Anyone else notice this? I.E. all transportation, health care, and education is run by government (three areas in which government has NO PLACE WHATSOEVER interfering)."
Sorry, you're wrong. Objectively, if you prefer. Road-building, water treatment, and education are public goods no matter how you slice it. (They are provided inadequately by a market economy-- no profit in it at the efficient quantity.) Unless you'd like to have to pay a toll to get out of your driveway or only see the wealthy receiving an adequate education, you have absolutely no idea the consequences of your obscene limitations on the government. And if you did want any of that, you'd be batshit insane. But then, you're a libertarian. You obviously haven't ever looked at a supply and demand graph, Kurt. Adam Smith would agree with Karl Marx more than he'd agree with you.
