Gee, it's almost like the quasi-mercantilist cocktail of immigration restrictions and tariffs is actually terrible policy.

Instead of applying to all U.S. citizens, gun control laws are designed to keep guns in the hands of the police and the military

"Trump is the personification of prosperity and a proud proponent of American exceptionalism."

@Gina One? Many ;) But IMHO the unsung hero that opened up that market 19 years ago and is still being used and developed under #GPLv2 license is #osCommerce. Disclaimer: I once was member of the osCommerce core team. A long time ago.

Liberdon

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
