We haven’t had a good Ron Paul post in a bit, so

In a YouTube video earlier this week, Paul suggested lawmakers consider issuing letters [of marque], which could relieve American naval ships from being the nation’s primary pirate responders — a free-market solution to make the high seas safer for cargo ships.

This would, of course, be Constitutional, since Congress has the power to “to declare war, grant letters of marque and reprisal, and make rules concerning captures on land and water.” How about a combination of Indian Ocean Cruise and Pirate Capturing Expedition? Carnival might be interested.
