    From the article:

    "Despite President Obama's moratorium on U.S. deepwater drilling in the Gulf of Mexico"

    ""None of these projects involve deepwater drilling," bank spokeswoman Maura Policelli told FoxNews.com in an e-mail."

    So what? Any fair weather Libertarian for a day would surely object to this misappropriation of US taxpayer money shouldn't they - whether in deep or shallow waters?

    As a member of the Libertarian Party since 1980(and I have the membership card to prove it) I am opposed to any taxpayer money going to any business in any country, including the United States of America.

    Are you also opposed to any business money going to the federal government in taxes to be wasted like it's being wasted now?

    Then you should have no problem objecting to our loaning tax money to Mexico to drill oil wells.

    I don't need to see your membership card. I already know from your past party switching how devoted you are.

    No. I am not an anarchist. There are some constitutional functions that the federal government needs revenue to carry out. If you don't believe me, then I suggest you read the U.S. constitution.

    I do object to any taxpayer money being given to Mexico, Israel, or any foreign country unless it is related to the defense needs of the United States of America.
