A Convenient Rebuttal to an Inane Argument
As a libertarian you get this shit all the time. "ZOMG BUT WHO WILL BUILD THE ROADS?"
Combined with this story about non union workers being turned away from areas hit by the storm, and this story about the Occupy Sandy movement doing relief work pretty much puts that argument to bed. How?
#1: Regulating the holy crap out of everything means well meaning relief efforts get stymied by red tape.
#2: People will genuinely do good for one another if left alone to do so.
You don't need a fucking government to build roads. Everyone who has ever walked in the woods knows that even a fucking deer can build a road. By subjecting anything, roads, power, any so called 'critical infastructure' to excessive government regulation, you just ensure the private contractors who are actually doing the physical work have to hire more lawyers of the Mandarin class to make sure their shit is up to code. Since lawyers don't generally work for free, especially when compared to construction workers this raises the cost exponentially. What you morons are doing is bailing out the new priest-king class. (Incidentally, you are also doing this with your fancy Obamacare)
Boom, done. You statist scum need to come up with a new fucking argument.
