    You do realize we are dealing with a unique historic monopoly entity such as Amazon, right?

    Jeff Bezo's wealth 119.4 billion USD. Yet his employees are on food stamps. If you have that kind of wealth and allow the taxpayers to pick the tab so your employees do not starve then you are a scumbag piece of shit with money. Every post you made in reply to me indicates you support growing government and/or scumbaggery.

    The difference is Amazon could do something about it over small businesses that are financially unable to. This makes Jeff Bezo's an immoral scumbag. Amazon should be recognized for what they are rather than put on a pedestal because they have a decent UI. If you have vast wealth and the employees that live in our community are starving, what would you do? Let the other poor taxpayers pickup the tax burden or step up and do something about it?

    Spot on. I would specifically however indicate monopolies as the culprit rather than "corporations" which can mean anyone even a very small unprofitable businesss. A local business can be more easily boycotted if they are immoral with their employees to affect change to their behavior rather than these large monopolies. The monopolies are stifling the free market system while dictating - owning politicians in multiple jurisdictions to enact oppressive tax policies to benefit them over the rest of us.

    In most cases I agree. We are however discussing the largest monopoly in the history of the world that is waging economic warfare by targeting specific sectors and selling at a loss until all their competitors are put out of business in that sector. This is elimination of the free market. While they do so they are partnering with government to pass the internet tax which will be impossible for anyone other than a monopoly to manage. A policy that could subject a business to a tax audit from any of the 9600 US tax jurisdictions. It is a small/medium size business killer and no doubt will be used by some jurisdictions politically against out of state businesses that do not comply with their philosophy. Amazon is more of a threat to individual liberty than any of the so called foreign policy threats.

    My 2 cents. It is not immoral to pay the market price for labor and no one is advocating against protecting the interests of investors and customers. Amazon however is in a unique position to balance their interests so their employees are not a burden to the taxpayers. (Such as charitable credit to the grocery stores for their employees) They could probably do it off the profit they make from the floating interest from internet tax collection. More so when the legislation they are promoting passes and it will unless Trump has a real backbone in standing up to Bezo's. That is if his opposition to him is not all talk. Oddly however Trump almost sounds like he is flirting exactly with what Bezo's wants.

    No. A libertarian can be whatever they want and preach whatever they want, that is the whole point. The question I have is why is there a movement that insists that Libertarians be immoral in business and their interactions? To me that sounds very much like it is an intentional establishment scam to deter adoption of the philosophy. A philosophy adopted by many charitable Christians and Christians sects with their own sects of the philosophy. So we attack people that have little choice in that matter rather than the largest profitable company in the history of the world that could make a charitable difference with their own employees rather than the employees a burden to the taxpayers. This is an imperfect world and people are imperfect. You expect poor people to stick to a philosophy to not take money from government when they are desperate? Amazon is not in a desperate situation and does have the ability to prevent more people added to the welfare rolls, but you give them a free pass?

    You can be a Capitalist and be moral. You can also be a Capitalist and be immoral. Which one are you? Pre-80's morality in business was seen as a virtue and immorality not condoned. I do not sign on to where immorality is a requirement to be Libertarian Capitalist.

    Go ahead and continue to consider Amazon like it is just any run of the mill company and turn a blind eye. All hail our Amazon overlords, right? Just turn a blind eye to them advocating for all 9600 tax jurisdictions to have internet taxing authority over us. Nah that will not be abused and we have to support Amazon because of it's great UI, right?

    You lost the privilege of a reply and a quote right off the bat when you stooped to name calling. Good job proving my example and showing your immorality for all to see here. If you bothered to actually read my replies there was no advocating for state interaction, quite the opposite and blame immoral libertarians like you why I do not already live in a Libertarian society living free on my land. It is those of you that advocate immorality as policy in business affairs that ruin it for the rest of us because you saw it on TV and cannot think for yourself, yet you call me the moron. Done with you.

    "Greed is good", right? Businesses exist to make a profit does not mean one should celebrate or support the process in which they do so if it violates the non-aggression principle, is immoral or creates a burden for taxpayers when it is unnecessary. Moral and immoral people can be Libertarians. It is the immoral people that have set the example of Libertarians that society recognizes and is why the Libertarian party is relegated to < 1%.

    It is unfortunate that you, "A Son of Liberty" and Libertarians I was calling out equate Libertarianism as a business policy of immorality, advocating for monopolies and growing government as an end result. The expectation that Libertarians advocate for extreme immorality in business is fairly a new thing and perhaps more with the younger generation here. Believing the largest most profitable monopoly in the history of the world should exercise some morality with it's employees, the communities for which they reside and the taxpayers does not mean one supports government intervention. In fact your advocating for the opposite and specifically for immorality is why Libertarians fail to make in-roads or success in society which results in calls for government regulation and growing government. Libertarians need to stop treating monopolies that have a policy of immorality, corporatism and waging economic warfare to eliminate all competition as some Mom and Pop business.

    Some of this thread demonstrates why Libertarians will always be 1% and after years of listening to the callous rhetoric and advocating for billionaires instead of the poor masses I am beginning to think maybe rightfully so. Instead of non-government alternatives offered up and calling out Amazon, <some> Libertarians attack poor people and rejoice in their demise while giving Bezo's, a billionaire that is profiting off the backs of taxpayers a free pass. Amazon profits off the backs of taxpayers by paying low wages to the point their employees need government assistance to survive and in turn these same employees will use the taxpayer dollars to enrich Amazon further. That is not very Libertarian. If Libertarians really had compassion for their fellow man and sense of morality, Bezo's would be called out for accepting SNAP and for not providing groceries as charity to their poor employees if they do not want to pay a living wage.

    Do you not understand how government works or are you completely delusional? Why do you oppose Rand working with Trump to get aspects of Rand's legislation passed? Some of Rand/Ron proposed policies made it into legislation that was either promoted by Trump or crossed his desk. Health care competition across state lines is an example of that. Yet because Trump is President you want me to oppose Trump to the benefit of the Neocons and the far left having a greater voice rather than Rand Paul. That is retarded or shows what your true intentions are here and whom you really do or do not support.

    I defend Trump or a candidate when they pass legislation I support and knock them when they do not. You however support a party or candidate 100% regardless whether their opposition proposes legislation that provides greater liberty. The news media and their respective political think tanks has trained people like you well in that respect.

    You and some here gave Hillary policies a free pass and her supporters a free pass. Then instead of attacking Trump on policies you went after people simply agreeing with specific Trump policies including polices that Rand/Ron campaigned on such as health care competition across state lines. The bias in favor of Hillary was obvious and what sounds like the Nazi like National Socialism you subscribe to from your post above.

    A more accurate reply would have been, "I have to face it, I have a knee jerk reaction to believe people cover for Trump here no matter what the circumstances." No one here covers for Trump rather it is more like trying to figure out which words out of his mouth are the truth, holding him true to policy and policy aligned with the beliefs here.

    You mean the small group of persons that actively promoted a rabid abortionist, statist and Neocon scum Hillary as a better option and disparaged the reputations of anyone that disagreed with that view? This rather than point out the failures of the two party system and take an objective view of the candidates flaws, their statist policies, their less statist policies and possible alternative liberty solutions? Rather than directly attacking people seeking a little bit of liberty in this life time no matter how small within the system that we are subjected to? Those immoral scumbags?
