The potato is a starchy, tuberous crop from the perennial Solanum tuberosum of the Solanaceae family (also known as the nightshades). The word may refer to the plant itself as well as the edible tuber. In the region of the Andes, there are some other closely related cultivated potato species. Potatoes were introduced outside the Andes region four centuries ago, and have become an integral part of much of the world's cuisine. It is the world's fourth-largest food crop, following rice, wheat and maize.
This whole fresh crop of strongly anti-government “taxation is theft” anarcho-whatever libertarians never were. Libertarians are supposed to be advocates of civil liberties, not masters of twisting a bunch of right-wing pet issues into self-declared ‘tyrannies’ that must be cast off before mankind can be free. All this hyper-capitalism sovereign citizen flim flam is a load of ancient repurposed right-wing artifice sold to idiots entirely on the promise of permissive views on drugs and sex.
