Rantings and tirades of a frustrated economist.
This chart needs to have terrorism on it. Then we need a chart that tracks dollars spent per death per cause, and we'll see that we spend $4 on heart disease per death, and $1111111111125130259810598120591509185 per terrorism related death. That doesn't sound like small government libertarianism to me.
"That doesn't sound like small government libertarianism to me"That's because you clearly don't have an understanding of the concept.Think of it this way:Your local police department spends $800,000,000 paying salaries for 20,000 police officers. They also spend $3,000,000 to buy everyone in the city an ice-cream cone. Now, by your logic, since the per-case cost of salaries works out to $40,000, while the per-case cost of ice cream cones works out to $1, clearly the police department should fire all of the police officers and spend all it's money buying more ice cream cones.That's your idea of small government liberalism, is it?
Anonymous would rather spend all that money on unconstitutional social welfare programs than on programs that are actually in the Constitution, like the military.
Perhaps you could make some interesting charts using this data http://www.eriposte.com/economy/other/demovsrep.htm
My first try at charting, could be worse http://i91.photobucket.com/albums/k294/scottzerosix/GDP.gif
