    ...the Libertarians will never join the Dems because economic issues trump ALL for them. This is proved time and time again. The problem of course, is that just about everyone thinks the standard libertarian economic policies are insane.

    Your pro-libertarian arguments are important and I think a Dem party with a libertarian streak is a positive, but libertarians largely live and die on their economic policies and that's a non-starter.

    There's something attractive about invincible ignorance... for the first 5 seconds.

    •  Big L vs small l (0+ / 0-)

      The LP types focus on economics, viewing ownership as the foundation for all other rights; self-ownership leads to the other personal freedom rights.

      The small-l libertarians are all over the map, but usually don't pick any one policy as The policy.
