Truly going Galt

I will not, under any circumstance, consider reforming and re-opening Barnhardt Capital Management, or any other iteration of a brokerage business, until Barack Obama has been removed from office AND the government of the United States has been sufficiently reformed and repopulated so as to engender my total and complete confidence in the government, its adherence to and enforcement of the rule of law, and in its competent and just regulatory oversight of any commodities markets that may reform. So long as the government remains criminal, it would serve no purpose whatsoever to attempt to rebuild the futures industry or my firm, because in a lawless environment, the same thievery and fraud would simply happen again, and the criminals would go unpunished, sheltered by the criminal oligarchy.

    Fred,

    Actually, she mixes verifiable fact and deep understanding with the most truly outrageous assertion.

    I wouldn’t show her to anyone after watching her series on Islamic sexuality.

    No doubt the lady has her bad points – everyone does.

    However, the essential message is correct.

    The rule of law is not the same as having lots of laws – there are certain PRINCIPLES that make up the rule of law.

    And these have broken down in the United States (and elsewhere).

    Just kicking out Comrade Barack Obama (whilst a welcome step) will NOT be enough on its own.
