New Hampshire is quite wealthy, has very low poverty, and has excellent schools. They also have the lowest income tax - is this evidence to support the Libertarian viewpoint? Bear in mind that correlation does not mean causation - but still, it makes you think.
New Hampshire was voted as the State for the Free State Project because it is "already" very libertarian in many respects from individual rights, to economics, to basic fundamentals of local government.
New Hampshire is a great example of how just a small dose of libertarianism can work, just imagine if the state over the next few years became a more complete example of Libertarian example?
It is hard to find an example of Libertarian government, unless you take the United States from its founding until about 1850. Most of that time we were on a "bimetallic" economics system which is the system I most support from "previous models". Even then however, there were several examples where it was not a true "libertarian" styled government including slavery.
One of my biggest arguments is that once slavery was abolished for blacks, the corporatists enslaved us all, via the changes to the laws of incorporation, the creation of the Federal Reserve, the Income Tax applied to individuals, and the fraudelent 16th amendment which together amount to uncontrolled inflation of trade units, based on government intent.
