    South Park Conservative.

    A long-winded book about the discovery of the modern Libertarian and an attempt to define them without using the word Libertarian.

    I do get that from this article, but also I get that within colleges there is a backlash to the whole PC movement which gives me hope. I have to say if not for talk radio, Fox News, and the bloggers we may not have seen this change.

    I read the article then get an idea that small l libertarians are growing in numbers as a backlash to the whole PC ideas that have limited free speech. However the author acts as if libertarians are a new phenomena and are as yet undefined. It seemed strange that the whole idea seemed so new to him. Good for the South Park guys though, hopefully this will continue if it does I see good things in the future of this country.

    Well surely you know how everyone wants to think they are first on their block. :teeth: I had seen this guy on TV and he seemd to be implying that it wasn't just Libertarians but also Conservatives that were jumping on board to this. Maybe they will morph into something new who knows?? Like you either way I say bravo!!

    Normally, when people think of "conservative," they think of uptight button-ups with no sense of humor. But that's not accurate. Most conservatives are funner and funnier than many liberals. I personally like crude humor and bawdy stuff, but I'm no commie, that's for sure.
