Jim Davidson makes a few crucial points in “A Modest Proposal” [http://www.ncc-1776.org/tle2006/tle373-20060625-02.html] that libertarians need to keep in mind. One aspect that he forgot to bring up, however, is that for a candidate to vote for himself, that candidate would be required to shoot “himself” in the head. I can see myself offering most candidates my pistol with a round in the chamber and telling them, “Make it easy on yourself and do it for real.”
What I’d really love to see is an outhouse on top of every politician’s grave site. That way we can provide for them, in some measure, the rewards they so richly deserve.
