"Just recently, the members of Congress, including the Republicans, agreed to another budget deal that has the federal government spending vastly more than what it brings in with taxes. The deficit between taxes and spending will mean adding larger additional amounts to the already existing mountain of U.S. government debt. The statists, especially those in the mainstream press, went gaga with exhortations of approval over the deal. If you want to see why libertarians keep emphasizing that this is a very bad and a very dangerous road to be travelling, keep watch over what happens in Puerto Rico. It's not going to be pretty, just as a similar situation in Greece has proven to be rather ugly. The real issue, though, is why Puerto Rico even belongs to the United States." (01/04/16)
