Hello fellow lovers of liberty,
I live in Rockford, IL. I forget exactly where I ran into Mr. Kokesh, but it was via Youtube. I am a confirmed anarcho-capitalist. I haven't been one forever, though. Only within the last year have I *finally* found a consistent philosophy that didn't make me want to literally kill myself. As with many others, with me it started with Ayn Rand. Atlas Shrugged blew my mind when I read it in my 20s. Objectivism was very attractive for its lack of mysticism and foundation on reality as it *is.* However, there were inconsistencies. The justification for government was its weakest part for me. I then discovered Murray Rothbard's writings, and that was what I needed.
I don't personally know *anyone* who espouses the same values as I do. That gets pretty frustrating. So here I am on the interwebs, looking for validation and solidarity.
