    Congress: it ain't authorized in the Constitution, don't fucking do it.

    Corporatism is the problem, capitalism is the solution.

    Your freedom to be you includes my freedom to be free from you.

    You want free health care? Free education? Free pie? Get a Constitutional amendment for it, assclown.

    You want to go invade other countries? If it is a truly just proposal then a declaration should be EASY to get. If not, maybe you shouldn't be invading other countries. Derp.

    Respect the checks and balances. The executive is supposed to be the weakest branch.

    I find it ironic that a thread is started about Libertarians with an avatar coercing collectivism.

    This points out a big FAIL in the libertarian viewpoint. We'll NEVER be rid of each other.

    It isn't how Libertarians think that is such a thread to the republic, it is how they act.

    When a powerful elite group takes it's mental masturbations and attempts to enact them in the physical world we get things like Alan Greenspan apologizing for imagining that markets self regulate, and we get purists in ideology demanding the rest of society rethink who is a free market lunatic and who is a true libertarian

    I'm pretty sure most libertarians oppose the idea of central banks....

    TRY AGAIN!

    "Libertarian" and think don't belong in the same sentence.

    Do you believe in the idea of nations?

    Yes?

    Then you cannot be a radical fringe Libertraian.

    Why?

    Because ALL governments infringe on your freedoms.


    So clearly there is a range of libertraian-type thinkers in the USA.

    MOst Libertarians I've met were basically Republicans who object to the amount of government infringing in their lives.

    Some were Democrats with basically the same complaint.

    Where they GOPers v DEMs differ is mostly which infringements on personal freedoms they're willing to tolerate.

    But both seem to me to be authentically libertarian.

    Looking forward to when old Ron Paul retires and Libertarians return to their normal obscurity and stop humping the legs of Republicans for attention.
