Professor's post: 

Class,

If I was a libertarian (Magstadt, 33), I would be an adherent of an extreme form of classical liberalism.  I would share viewpoints on the economy with modern conservatives.  I might read Ayn Rand (Links to an external site.), follow Rand Paul on twitter (Links to an external site.), and support a balanced budget amendment (Links to an external site.).  A balanced budget amendment would require that the government keep a balanced budget.  Would I be right that a balanced budget amendment would be a good idea?  What are the chances that I could have this wish come true?
