Ansell: I reacted to your post #9:

That guy never varies his song, he is always pushing liberalism. Now he want (sic) legal dope.

Because I wanted to stake out a position that "legal dope" is not necessarily a liberal position but a libertarian position and it should be a conservative position (at least on the federal level). In other words, I do not want to passively accede to definitions of liberalism, conservatism or libertarianism which I do not believe are true.

To that end, I try to draw our attention to the fundamental precepts which inspired conservatism rather than simply making ad hominem about how dreadful libertarians are.

In other words, name calling does not advance our understanding very far. One could as easily call the founding fathers libertarians as the Warren court.

God this childish game playing is boring, the left and libertarians are on the same team, destroy social conservatism, and they have ruined our nation with their successes of the last 60 years.

The difference is that the libertarian social liberals are so incredibly preachy and superior acting as they promote the same goals as the rest of the left, as though they are preaching the Holy word of the social conservative God himself while they promote dope and homosexuality and porn, open borders and the rest of it.

The open leftist says let’s legalize drugs and have homosexual marriage, and porn because it is fun and kinky. The libertarian says let’s legalize drugs and have homosexual marriage, and porn because the people who founded this nation would want us to, it was their Holy Writ.

The founding generations would lynch all you guys for your nonsense.
