DarnoKonrad: "free markets to a gaggle of misfits who want pot and prostitution legalized and a total non-interventionist foreign policy."What exactly do you think the "free market" is going to provide? Wholesome values? Left to their own devices people will sell each other for a pocket of shiny rocks you flippin' moron."Libertarians have devolved from the pro-liberty wing of the right side of the ledger to the annoying kid who, when he doesn't get 100 percent of what he wants, takes his ball and goes home."Who are you dictate what "pro liberty" is supposed to mean? If your highest goal is personal freedom, don't be surprised when it turns out to be purely selfish means. This guy is arguing contradictions.

axeeugene: Your type make me puke, QueenMamaBee.
UNC_Samurai: kxs401: All the Libertarians I know are either 20-something dudes who love weed and have very little idea what the federal government actually does or brilliant sociopaths who believe they would flourish in a country without a strong central government and therefore, screw you.Anecdata!I can't disagree. I went through a dumb college libertarian phase. Then I graduated and the real world slapped some sense into me. Between wising up and watching the political spectrum around me being distorted, I'm now pretty damn liberal.
Diogenes: Honestly, what does being a Libertarian mean beyond legalizing drugs, banging hookers and sitting by while the rest of the world blows itself up?Well, there's also the self-centeredness and sociopathy.
Lost Thought 00: It means you are too much of a pussy to call yourself an Anarchist

Karac: What Libertarians do exceedingly well is sit on the sidelines, arms folded, and complain.How is that different from Republicans?
axeeugene: DarnoKonrad: This guy is arguing contradictions.Well look, DarnoKonrad, if he argues with you, he must take up a contrary position!I've tried formulating coherent arguments with and about Libertarians - I really have. But I've found making Monty Python references is really the only sensible response in the end./YES IT IS!
Gulper Eel: I guess I'd pass for libertarian here at Fark - that comes from watching the progressive model be at best an expensive mediocrity in my home state, and watching power seeking more power in Washington no matter who's in charge.Call libertarianism the opposite of whatever the party that wants to play Santa Claus and the party that wants to play God are doing.
dwrash: I used to identify with the Libertarian Party... but I'm now more along the lines of the Modern Whig party.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modern_Whig
EWreckedSean: Wanting smaller, less intrusive government and supporting personal liberty. What a bunch of greedy cave dwellers.
slayer199: It's a pretty simple philosophy:

BMFPitt: and that power is always better centralized?
Fart_Machine: slayer199: It's a pretty simple philosophy:You can't even get Libertarians to agree what a Libertarian is in their own party.
skullkrusher: Diogenes: Honestly, what does being a Libertarian mean beyond legalizing drugs, banging hookers and sitting by while the rest of the world blows itself up?Well, there's also the self-centeredness and sociopathy.That's Randians
lockers: That isn't libertarianism. Greedy survivalist is more accurate.
IdBeCrazyIf: BMFPitt: and that power is always better centralized?Even Jefferson recognized the need for a strong centralized federal government in a global world, lay off it already
Gulper Eel: lockers: That isn't libertarianism. Greedy survivalist is more accurate.So because, for example, my state spends as much on Medicaid than the next two largest states put together, without producing outcomes any better than the states that spend a shiatload less, and I think that's a damn stupid thing to do...I'm a greedy survivalist?I take it you're with the Kris Kringle wing of the Democratic party.
