    You're right, you're not liberal. I'm liberal. You're a LOLberal. Which is a progressive retard that loves authoritarianism and despotic measures, theft and despises the rule of law vs. the rule of man.

    What gives me credibility in economics is the study of economics. I certainly would never say that the TP signed a pledge to hand over monetary policy to Norquist. Because that shows how fucking stupid someone is right there.

    On what planet are you considered liberal? I seem to recall a conversation a while back in which you longed for pure laissez faire and a return to the days of the robber barons. Have I confused you with someone else?

    Yes, indeed. The Tea Partiers should let the Surrender caucus, led by John McCain and Co., to take over and then officially merge the republican and democratic parties together.

    You should study more and speak less.

    Liberalism - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

    I would suggest that in casual conversation as one might find on a political discussion board, popular definitions are best. Libertarian is the currently understood term for the political leaning you appear to follow. Liberal is the currently understood term for someone who advocates a more community based approach.

    So essentially their beliefs are the opposite of this definition. Noting the usage of the of the phrase "autonomy of the individual."

    I sure we both like Ludwig Von Mises and Milton Freidman. I'd say that gives us both lots of credibility in terms of knowledge of economics. If that is indeed the case.

    Yep the statist love to screw language to suite their point of view. Hell, rewriting history and now the dictionary are something they are really good at. Have you noticed they have dusted of the old thesaurus to resurrect the word "reactionary", it's popping up more and more in the commie posts. I guess they feel better about themselves when they use larger words.
