    I see RKBA on the authoritarian/libertarian axis. There are people who were hard core lefties who supported a gun in every hand* like Marx, Debs, or Orwell. There are people who were hard core righties who supported no firearms in any hands outside the government.

      ( kick everyone off food stamps, no medical insurance means just die already) are anathema to most voters, and inconsistent with a thriving democracy.

      Just puts the libertarian axis in perspective. We all know about the authoritarian axis, but libertarians are in the news these days.

      •  I don't agree with libertarians on a whole bunch. (0+ / 0-)

        But I do consider myself a civil libertarian. (Small l) If it deals with your civil rights, the government shouldn't stick its nose in.

        Now, providing social safety nets, regulating business, providing for the common defense, and things along that line, I have no problem with.

        Hope you swing in to today's diary.
