I'd happily pay trillions!

Yeah - of other people's money that was "legally" taken by the government because they had the power.   Angry

The money that libertarians pay for Liberty is our own! - if we can manage to keep the governments grubby paws off it.
  

Governments will always devise ways to deprive an honest man of his money or property, and claim that it's legal.

What about it? Is it cronyistic? Mercantile?

So is the US, and the US is going to fall.

Japan is probably not.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

You keep hoping for the destruction of America, don't you?

Can't have Capitalism + Democracy

...Not even representative democracy. The later in the game your capitalism is, the more concentrated wealth will be, and the more eager the moneyless, landless masses will be to vote themselves other peoples' stuff.

Not only this, the later in the game the political system is, the more eager representatives will be to give 51% of the populace what it wants (even by taking it from the other 49%) if it makes them win.

If you want lasting capitalism it would probably have to be a monarchy.

Democracy only works in a racially homogeneous country where only landowners having voting power.  Even better when more land equals more voting slots just as a publicly-traded company works.  Otherwise, the Have-Nots will vote the Haves out of their own land as they are doing in Mexifornia now.  Rent control is just the beginning.  With enough signatures collected outside of the supermarkets, they could make a new proposition that forces homeowners who have 3 bedroom houses or bigger to rent out one more of those rooms to low-income people for pennies.

Of course, people who don't agree with this are those who do not own homes.

This is what pisses me off the most about the democrat and classical liberal hypocrites.  They talk and talk and talk.  The day I see them take in a poor or illegal into their home and give them free rights to their fridge then I will too.
