    Libertarianism is just Fascism with a facelift. Scratch the surface of Libertarianism and you will find the notion that corporations should rule supreme, just as it was with Fascism..

    •  Your logic would lead to calling for her to be (0+ / 0-)

        She will most likely be paroled after having served just over 11 years.
