I don't hate Libertarians, but y'all tend to send some of the douchiest examples of your kind to office. The ones we have in Congress tend to be NeoFeudalists who are REALLY hoping that they'll be inside the walls when their corporate masters finally implode democracy "for their own good" and be patted on the head for their service like a loyal puppy.

2wolves: Or because Libertarianism has never been tried on a county basis let alone a national basis.If you want to get five definitions of Libertarianism ask two Libertarians.
Tyrone Slothrop: Because their economic and most social ideas are based on false, unsustainable, premises?/The only thing libertarians have right is getting rid of victimless crimes
Dancin_In_Anson: Libertarians ≠ "Going Galt"
monoski: WTF Indeed: Because they are the adult version of the greedy bastard kid down the street who refused to share his toys because they were his and no one elses!Add in the simplistic views of complex global and economic issues combined with some tin foil hat conspiracy theories about the fed and it is no wonder people who know how to read have been ignoring Ron and Rand for years.
