You try to cash in the spoils for a Starbucks coffee, and the kid behind the counter with an earring in one of his ears, and a piece of metal inserted on the middle of his tongue (gosh it would be great to be young again), will be puzzled as to just why you think that a fair exchange.

Perhaps we can just switch ages?

The world is becoming globalized, but cosmopolitanism is being hijacked by the Davos Man. What choice is left besides nationalism? The thought is terrifying, to be honest.

I have. Also, I just made a joke, don't need to assume I'm a clueless Dem drone.
I just know that Somalia's pretty much the perfect example of what life would be like if the private sector ran everything. The country is actually a paradise to live in if you can afford your own security, food and export your kids out to Europe and America to get and education.
I love how nearfly every lefty has this thought and thinks they are the first to come up with it.  Anarchy and Ron Paul's version of (and most flavors of) libertarianism are the same thing.  Somalia is NOT a libertarian paradise no matter how much you may want it to be.

Is there any country that functions on a libertarian mindset?!

Debatably Hong Kong.
Singapore, economically. But.....not in any other way.

Singapore is more New Keynesian/neoliberal.  Hong Kong is probably the closest to Austrian economics given their semi-private currency.

Singapore is close to 1984 in many, many ways. I never said it was perfect.

Hence "Debatably"

Also, land prices/rent/etc is probably the worst part of Hong Kong's economy, so there's that.

Hong Kong University also owns a property, but that's it.

Won't Romney be able to easily get a majority of delegates while ignoring Paul considering that Gingrich and Santorum have now dropped out?

But they haven't "dropped out", their campaigns have been suspended, meaning they keep the delegates.

Yeah but I'm thinking about the future primaries and their delegates. Romney can get a majority from the upcoming primaries because he'll win by such a large margin considering it's going to be just him vs Paul right?
