Robert, saw your post re Rothbard on Amash's wall, here's all his pics:Actually, the post was by Chris Rossini. But for the record here is the wall of Justin Amash:
In the old television series Banacek (Banacek was played by George Peppard), he used to recite an "old polish proverb" in each episode. One of the proverbs was, "Just because a dress is red satin, doesn't mean the it comes off easily."
I guess a modern day version of these proverbs would be, "Just because a Congressman has a picture of Murray Rothbard on the wall, doesn't mean he won't raise your taxes."
Amash, of course, stated that he was against taking taxes off the negotiation table, during the fiscal cliff negotiations. He argued it might help reduce the deficit.
Here's Rothbard on taxes versus the deficit (at 3:35).
