He'd be able to get plenty done. Sure, it takes party control to add more crap for the gov't to do, but it would be pretty easy to just axe programs and slash the budget. Who knows, maybe the people would like it.

Hint: Congress approves the budget.

Right, but the uphill battle is getting them to approve more spending. At any rate, I have a feeling that a Libertarian President would be more than happy to let federal employees go without pay.

Which would lead to government collapse and distrust of the Libertarian Party. Fine by me.

I'd the first time he would try to bring up highway priivitization on a national stage.

As I said, good luck with that. Christ, and they say communism is unrealistic.

The federal gov't might be in a bind, but I imagine the states would deal.

You honestly believe that there would be no opposition to a shutdown of major federal infrastructure? At all?

Just because the president might be able to do something as an executive order doesn't mean that the backlash from the people or congress wouldn't be harsh. There'd be impeachment hearings the moment he tried anything like that.

The only people who would get in trouble for a shutdown of the federal government would be congress, for not authorizing a budget. They'd have to approve some money, even if they didn't get anything for their own pork.

Good luck with what assclown, thatís what would happen, no need for congressional approval. And BTW a constructional republic has happened, communism has not.

I'm probably just scared because every political discussion forum (except FreeRep and DemoUnderground) seems to be majority libertarian.

I need to calm down and remember they're more fringe that the greens.

The Libertarian party is a piece of crap. It needs a moderate candidate and it needs to do something big to get national news and it could take off.
