>The Only Choice on November 6th  - Lew Rockwell - 
Rockwell says of the coming election in November: "This year especially there is no lesser of two evils. There is socialism or fascism." Rockwell would have liked a third option - Anarchism, but Ron Paul is not in the race having placed his foot in his mouth so many times that he ought to be acknowledged as the most limber man in America. I refer to Paul's comments blaming America for 9/11, and saying over and over, despite evidence to the contrary, that Iran was no threat.

Anarchism results when States or individuals are recognized as having the freedom to secede from an established social order they either did not personally agree to or were born into. Rockwell and Paul have agrued that the South had the right to leave the Union and nevermind their horrendous slave system - a nearsighted focus on State Rights over Individual Rights.

Rockwell and Paul are correct in attacking the State for supression of individual rights. They are not correct in advocating secession from a limited government social order. Given their own logic, that could only lead to further secession -- citites from states, districts from citites, neighborhoods from districts, and down to the individual level. This leads to group formation for protection and justice, clans, a Hatfied/McCoy society of constant warfare. Do we have evidence of that in the current world? One need look no further than Somalia to see the dismal result.

In point of fact, regarding the upcoming election, the choice is between an Obama Socialism and a Romney return to limited government.
