  •  These assholes are becoming unbearable (3+ / 0-)

    I'm a libertarian. There I said it. But I read Atlas Shrugged and it sounded to me like Rand was pretty much a bitter old cunt.

    I always equated Libertarianism with freedom, freedom to love who you want, smoke what you want, worship the god of your choice (or no god at all, as in my own case). They always needed some platform changes, after all anyone with a brain could see that there were places the free market failed: defense (too late to buy an army once youve been invaded) environment (too late to do anything once the pollution has happened) schooling (really? what sort of brainless dipshit wants to do away with public schooling?) But the basic message was pretty sound I thought. Live your life without harming others, and you are free to do so without government intervention.

    But these republican assholes have hijacked that message into some twisted dickensian apologia for starving kids, nay, whole families, so someone can get a better interest rate on their private jet payment. While conveniently forgetting to espouse ACTUAL freedom...ya know love, life, liberty, speech, religion, all those inconvenient non-profitable freedoms.

    That aint libertarian. That aint even republican. Thats just assholery.

    It's time for some torch and pitchfork action. For realz.

    Left Coast Libertarian
