Please.  Exaggerate much?  Libertarianism is not "only" about hookers and blow.

It's also about believing erosion of civil liberties are OK if done by corporations, local government, or against liquor store robbers instead of federally, believing that basic morality would have ended racism but for the passage of the Civil Rights Act (and in spite of hundreds of years of not doing so before), that corporations will be good stewards of the environment if only the EPA would get off their backs, and that Christian fundamentalism can be enshrined into law as long as you call it 'states rights'.

Oh, and much like 'Tea Party', it also an attempt to repackage Republican policies without the baggage of actually being called Republicans.

FTFA: Do you really want to go to the 7-Eleven, right next to the chicken on a stick, and see some crack?
...
"Any 7-Eleven you can probably get a dual discount," McDaniel said. "Maybe if you get a hooker and some crack maybe they'll give you discount on that. That's the idea of libertarianism."


Why does this guy have such a huge boner about 7-Eleven?

It is about capitalism unrestrained by any policy, no matter how beneficial. It is a religious belief in an economic system that suffers from the same flaws that plague all evangelical movements.

It is hateful and stupid, and deserves all the scorn that can be mustered.

Holy sh*t, I'd say you just put libertarians in the burn unit but libertarian hospitals probably just offer 'rub some tussin on it' for burn treatment. Bravo.

Hookers & blow you say. I finally found a party with my moral convictions and vision for the future.

how come clinton isn't a libertarian?

I've alway felt the TeaParty was a(not so ) clever attempt by people like Karl Rove to deflect all the damage the Cheney/Bush administration did away from the GOP. it has had the predictable outcome of creating an entity that would then not go away but creat a new party of willfully stupid underclass that systematically votes against their own self interest.

and the hookers and blow doesn't identify Libertarians,because it's already a fairly accurate description of Today,s GOP. unless the Libertarians are actually  GOPers.

FTAMcDaniel continued his riff by saying Libertarians - a group he'll likely need to win over to unseat Chocran in the Republican primary - promoted immorality and chaos, citing Amsterdam as an example.

You know how I know that this guy has never been to Amsterdam?

Not terribly relevant, but the incumbent senator is Cochran.  Modern journalism is to spell the name of a six-term US Senator two different ways in a short article, both of them wrong.

It's not even about hookers and blow, except in this sense: Libertarians believe that the states should be able to pass whatever laws they want about them. So if Nevada decides hookers and blow are OK, fine. If Alabama decides that both or either deserve the death penalty that's also fine.
 
2014-04-12 10:47:12 AM
Please, this is back from 2007, when Barack Obama was still a homophobe. Move on.

jjorsett: Please, this is back from 2007, when Barack Obama was still a homophobe. Move on.


It's truly enjoyable watching you guys have to dig and grasp at any little thing to try and make this a NO U! situation. Obama was a homophobe? Why, because he didn't just straight out say he was ok with gay marriage? Please. It's politics and you know it. You're angry because you suck at politics, not realizing it's your own idiocy and determination to be right rather than getting it right that limits your participation to the level of someone standing in a corner muttering to themselves about how everyone else sucks.

Libertarians believe "Ask not what your country can do for you..." means governments should do nothing in protecting its people from the invisible pimp hand of capitalism.

Don't forget that Loonietarians are IN FAVOR of a state not only having it's own Official Religion, but have the power to impose forced religious conversion upon it's citizens under of Law. It's the Federal Gub'mint that they don't want doing it, but each of the 50 states can form their own mini-Irans if they wanted to, as far as Loonietarians are concerned.

Libertarianism is not that new of an idea - it was a reactionary movement that grew out of Goldwater's failed presidential bid. Harry Browne was their go-to presidential candidate for a long time; I voted for him in 2000, when I was still a dumb college libertarian.

How about cheating the system in the same way you revile in others?  I was briefly in a band with a hardcore libertarian; RON PAUL worshiping, entitlement-hating type of guy.  Dude was in his late 20s; not wealthy but from a solidly middle-class family.  He lived with his dad, but claimed government assistance regardless and spent most of his income purchasing music gear he had absolutely no need for.  He literally had stacks of cheap guitars and basses just laying around his house.  Every week he showed up with a new piece of gear.  Most of it junk, but he absolutely could not help himself from buying it.

Would you like to compare how often a Libertarian publicly says something asinine with how often a Democrat publicly says something asinine?

Oh, who am I kidding, you know damn well that not only do the Libertarians say stupid shiat in public more often, you also know that most of the time when a Democrat says something stupid other Democrats call them on it, while when a Libertarian says something stupid, other Libertarians fall over themselves to be the first to agree with them.  Libertarians are a lot like the Republicans in that way.

One of my greatest issues of the whole "libertarian" mindset is how intentionally disorganized they are yet they still try to play No True Scotsman with the rest of us.
