Wanna Be A Pirate? Vote For Ron Paul!

Coolest freakin' job in the world!

Hugh Hewitt was interviewing Ron Paul yesterday and asked him about his proposal to issue Letters of Marque and Reprisal in order to hunt down Bin Laden if he's elected president. Essentially, you'd get to be a privateer hunting down Bin Laden on your own as a private citizen. THAT is very cool.

Always wanted to wear an eye-patch.

It's funny because we could have saved billions of dollars, thousands of US lives, and hundreds of thousands of Iraqi Civilian's lives.

But we do have a several million dollar bounty on his and others' heads? Isn't that kind of the same thing? I imagine if you wanted to you could hunt down Bin Laden and collect the reward and glory yourself without the Letter of Marque. I think the Marque just sort of lets the government disavow any direct knowledge or involvement in your actions.
