So you apparently accept that the Fed is constitutional?
And don't bring up SCOTUS, they have made so many mistakes as to be irrelevant.It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

As far as the Supreme Court, I think what most people dislike about the court is that its decisions give the appearance of a legislative body, rather than a judicial one. I can see the problem, but I suspect that the cause isn't rooted in the SCOTUS but in the nature of what US politics has become.

When it comes to Libertarian views I disagree with NAP as a blanket policy and ideas of "rugged individualism". Anything that is worth doing can be done more efficiently when people work together (no I'm not a Socialist). Libertarians who follow the Austrian school of economics are, as far as II'm concerned, embracing the worst ideas in economics.
I'm not really sure what a "True Conservative" is as so money who claim to be Conservatives claim to hold that title, yet disagree on policy. I don't understand why Conservatism aligns itself with religion. Conservatives fail with ideas of "supply side economics". Also, most Conservatives talk about "responsibility" and hard work, but they forget that if society is the body and the people in it are it's "cells", the body prospers most and works best to defend itself against other bodies (nations) when it's cells are healthy and productive.
As far as Liberals are concerned, I think Liberals, especially young Liberals, are to easily whipped into a frenzy to defend social ideals without understanding that how you accomplish something is just as important as what you accomplish. Lots of intelligent youngsters putting their college educations to work forgetting that intelligence isn't simply what you know it's what you do, with what you know. It's not asking the question, "how do we do X", but "why should we do X". On the economic side, Liberals are simply the other side of the same failed coin as Conservatives. They take the Conservative paradigm and just reverse it.
So I don't fit in a box. I find that, on most Conservative sites I've visited, that I'm called a Liberal, which is why I laid out my views here on the welcome forum.
I believe in a mixture of socialist and capitalist ideas, mixed intelligently to drive minimally regulated markets. I don't believe in the "invisible hand" (and neither did Adam Smith). Truly free markets are subject to perverse incentives that often favor those with money and power at the expense of those without.
Nice to make your acquaintance and looking forward to some interesting debates.
