Anarchy in the United States

Jesse Mathewson at Zero Gov - statists are always saying that there's never been a successful anarchy. Nonsense, says Mr. Mathewson. America's old west, contrary to movie fictions about lawlessness, was a very successful anarchy that lasted for a nearly a century.

So when someone asks regarding whether anarchy has ever existed, point them to the Wild West. It was a land of opportunity, liberty and no central government for close to a hundred years. From Kentucky to California, anarchy was in existence and worked well. People prospered and people died, but more than anything people were truly free to live as they wanted and do what worked best for them. A quick look at the state controlled sections of the world throughout history and today and you will see that people die, and people rarely prosper, but most of all people are neither free nor do they know liberty. So what would you prefer, liberty and the ability to thrive based on your own free uncontrolled labor or what you have now?

I for one prefer we change this government back to a government of the people. I don't really care what a group of people in Washington DC think we need, it's suppose to be what the Constitution says the government can and can not do. No more of this BS what the government will do for the people.
