Well that is interesting isn’t it?
Ron Paul has only passed 1 bill in 14 years.
That is a success rate of less than 0.22%. Yes less than a quarter of a %
Im sure whatever bill he got passed had to be really good tho right?
Lets look and see.
To authorize the Administrator of General Services to convey a parcel of real property in Galveston, Texas, to the Galveston Historical Foundation.
So Ron Paul’s ONE and ONLY success in Congress, he got some land given to a historical society in his home district. Dare I say, least effective politician EVER!
Can you prove your ideology is more than merely theoretical construct?
Can you provide one real world example of a government that functions according to your principles?
Can you show me one country that is on the gold standard?
UPDATE: I have recieved answers so far. All of them said No. Except one person who completely avoided the question entirely.
I’m simply asking a few questions so please stay on topic and answer the question if you wish to participate.
The funniest part is that I was recommended a video and some txt to read. Both of which clearly stated no to all three answers. The one real world example they provided was Somalia. Typical libertarian response, and still not a sufficient answer to my questions by any means. If anything Somalia is really more of a soft-spot for libertarians so I am a little bit surprised that someone would actually post that mises vid, but not too surprised :)
There are only two types of politicians. Greedy ones or Zealots.
edit: with maybe one exception for Bernie Sanders
