And how would Libertarians support a government under which the people have the freedoms we enjoy? There aint no free lunch. The matter of all those "non producers" old people, poor people, mental cases etc. Why dont we just let them die? Are there no jails? Are there no work houses? Dont I pay taxes to support those institutions? ( Ebinezer Scrooge) Do the Eskimos still leave their old and sick on the ice to freeze or be eaten by polar bears? Do the nomads in Africa still leave their "non producers" behind to feed the Hyenas and Jackals? We could save billions by adopting that policy. What do you think MAV?

An old man with Parkinsons lived with his son and the sons family. One day the old man happened by the work shop and heard his son working inside. He entered the shop, and asked the son what he was doing. The son said, "I'm building a trough for you so you will stop spilling your food." The old man said, "Son, you carry my genes, better build one for yourself."
