  •  doesn't sound very Libertarian to me (10+ / 0-)

    20 years ago, when I was in high school, I used to hang out with a group of Libertarians in a liberal midwestern college town. If that university had pepper sprayed students, we would be the first ones out protesting the "facist" police who pepper sprayed students. In fact, it was around that time that the university police became armed with guns. They had been without guns prior. The local libertarian group was quite against it.
    I have not seen any of these people in 15 or so years, and I do know the Libertarian Party has changed from a "Legalize pot, and then cut taxes" to "Eliminate all taxes, and oh yeah, if you get around to it maybe legalize pot".
    Your "Uncle" might be a nut, but not a libertarian one.
