Not true. But they are almost as rare as real liberals.

They did sell out to the tea party. They felt that the tea party legitimized them after decades of being those weird 3rd party guys who come off as assholes.

LIbertarians are closer to Democrats than Republicans. They're actually second cousins to Bolsheviks.

Not really. You're confusing us with neo-cons looking to crawl out from under the Bush legacy.

No, the tea party movement somehow legitimized the libertarians. They all gave up calling themselves libertarians to join a movement that was a little more significant.

Nope. I'm living proof you're deluded.

Well let's do a little comparison.

Libertarians tend to favor such things as legalized drugs, abortion, illegal immigration. These favor the Dims.

Libertarians tend to favor limited government, something not even the GOP can identify with.

Yep, you are more like Dims.

There is one of you. When was the last time you heard a libertarian of any significance get any media attention? You gotta think way back to before the tea party. Why? Because the libertarians leeched onto the teaper movement

Maybe. I'd definitely say libertarians are more liberal than they are conservative, if that's what you're getting at.

I'm just saying that the GOP is the Dim party minus abortion, illegal immigration, and legalized drugs. Otherwise they are the same party.

Nah.. nothing like that. Libertarians don't get major media attention because we aren't sucking corporate cock like the Dems and Rethugs.

Both the GOP and Dims are corporatists. They support corporations taking over the free market, and then controlling the select corporations who rule the world. It's a type of corporate socialism.

Of course, if they go belly up they take our money and give it to them and if we refuse to buy their product, such as health insurance, they send the IRS after us.
