    and worry that the lo info young can fairly easily be moved into a 'libertarian' mode, hands off my weed, no war, no spying, no making me support the old by paying more for health insurance, or being forced to buy it - just gimme my freddumbzzz! I'mma libertarian! ----and in return , sure, you can pollute my rivers, you can spend millions to buy elections,  hey itza free country, so sue if you don't like it.

    Thanks Democrats! My Obamacare is permanent coverage no one can take away - and saving $3,000 is nice too

    •  I know scary ignorant young people like that. (3+ / 0-)

      My cousin reposts anything she sees that bothers her on Facebook and her friends chime in with their agreement. Like lies about how SNAP pays for booze, and other "taker" myths. She calls herself a Libertarian because she doesn't want to share her upper middle class white birthright (which she is clueless about) with "lazy" people on "welfare". One thing I know about her is that she doesn't read much. The internet let's her spread her ignorance far and wide and let's her think her uninformed opinions about non facts are as valid as any others.

          She has Hundreds of friends who see her posts...and they have many friends...and so on and so on.

          During the election I just couldn't let her misinformation stand and I'd correct or point out only what was wrong, with links. If I let it stand, thousands literally could be misinformed by her non-facts and feelings about them.

          I think that may be why I was not invited to her wedding to be honest. ):  Extended family is important to me.

    •  It's bc of his stance on marijuana. (0+ / 0-)
