    Well you claimed to be a free market supporting libertarian, and that's obviously not the case.

    How about I support a realistic market? In otherwords I'm not completely delusional.

    No need to be angry that you're simply a progressive, rather than an oxymoronic "progressive libertarian."

    Consequently, it's not oxymoronic... I looked it up in a desperate attempt to classify what I believe in a few words... that I hoped people wouldn't over-analyze for the purpose of being assholes. But hey... we don't always get what we want... huh?;)

    Truth be told the concept of libertarianism spans a long range of ideologies. People are multifaceted or atleast I am... as you'll find out.

    Well no libertarian would support universal healthcare as it requires the government to take from one group of people to the benefit of another, which violates individual liberty. So while you may think you're a libertarian, you're not.

    Just like no libertarian wouldn't support women's choice to terminate their pregnancies because that's restricting individual liberties? Or no libertarian should drive on a government road because those require the government to take from one group of people to the benefit of another? Or no libertarian should support governemnt funded schools? I guess if you take extremism as being the absolute your theory works. I don't subscribe to such a theory therefore, perception is a b*tch ain't it?

    Well you see there are many pro-life libertarians. The argument being that a fetus has as much a right to life as any other human. As for government roads, we'd certainly prefer to see privatization but we don't refuse to drive on them. What's the point of that? I don't know of any libertarians that do support government funded schools, but there are plenty of libertarians that have no choice but to send their children to government funded schools.

    I know plenty, in matter of fact I know alot within the actual LP which I don't subscribe to or support in most cases. Regardless... let's just agree to disagree so I can go to sleep I'm a free thinker meaning I don't subscribe to every idea attributed to any one ideology. Sound fair?
