Some of that is libertarian and some of it isn’t. I think the artist is a bit confused.

I think the artist is a leftist, especially since he seems to not like cutting taxes.

I’m a libertarian and I think that is hilarious.

He left off the “I’m a Libertarian-Constitutionalist who wants federal judges to strike down any laws I don’t like.”

Two kinds of people...gun owners and sheep. heeheehee

I guess I'm that guy, cause I was just thinking yesterday (during an argument in my head with a libtard), that the 2nd Amendment gives a person the right to not own a gun and rely on someone else for safety.

LOL, They need the Ron Paulian. All they say is Ron Paul over and over and over and have a little shrine with rEVOLution written in their typical format.

A lot of those really fit. I wish we could tag people on pics.

I agree with a lot of libertarianism, but some libertarians I can't stomach like Lew Rockwell.

It’s the view of Liberatarians from the Left. Everything they see is skewed with astigmatism.

I kind of like Gunner Joe LOL

I think it's pretty good to be able to laugh at yourself and I can recognize myself (or my friends) in a lot of those digs.

The "Too Smart For Science" guy, however, is a real off-the-wall note. What does believing in global warming have to do with a political viewpoint. You can be a big gub guy and doubt global warming. You can be a libertarian and believe it to be absolutely true.

I figure that most doubters of global warming aren't motivated by an ideology just by experience that if someone lies to you once, they are going to lie to you again.

Some clues that the guy is a leftist:

1. He left out the isolationist type of libertarian.

2. He ridicules people who don't believe in man made global warming.

3. He paints libertarians as pro-life when in fact many - like Neal Boortz - are pro choice.

The author’s views can be summed up by his upper right-most caption. He can criticize libertarians all he wants, but he might have trouble criticizing libertarianism.

Signs onboard for the welfare state and federalism too.

He rejects the notion that gas taxes pay for roads and echo’s Obama’s meme about some old person complaining against Obamacare while saying “don’t touch my medicare”.

Yeah, he does not have a clue like most, if not all of them. They get their political information from comedy central.

I am a big critic of Libertarians, but most of those are rather unfair...except maybe the “Stoned” one. :-)

Even the whole rest of the world sees that we have passed a Socialized Medicine bill. It’s not just Republicans and Libertarians who are willing to point this out.

If Socialism isn’t so bad, why can’t any of them step up to the bar and admit it?

It isn’t “socialist” enough by their definition?

At what point would it be “not socialist at all”?

(finger) to Barry Ritholtz who is a garden variety democrap. He has no problem laying the housing mess on Bush’s doorstep when it was Clinton’s actions on CRA and his signatures on Graham Leach Bliley and the Commodities Modernization Acts that set the mess in motion.

A few random thoughts:

The Island: I’ve yet to meet a Libertarian who would argue that maintaining infrastructure (including public roads) is not a legitimate function of government.

More Libertarian than Thou: I guess the cartoonist doesn’t know there are, in fact, a number of privately or semi-privately operated police forces in the United States. Some school township police forces would meet that standard. And the ones I know of provide protection for everyone in their area of responsibility, not just “the people who can afford it.”

Creepy: Right, and there are no pedo-pervs on the left? I’m thinking there aren’t a lot of Republicans in NAMBLA.

The Missionary: Okay, that one *is* kind of funny. BTW, there’s an Atlas Shrugged movie in the works. Angelina Jolie is supposedly going to play Dagny Taggart.

Funny. Also, how about PROFOUNDLY INEFFECTIVE:

Ronald Paul has sponsored 374 bills since Jan 7, 1997 of which 371 haven't made it out of committee and 1 were successfully enacted.

Don’t forget OCD Randroid Trekkie libertarians, still worried about freedom for consenting adults (40+ years AFTER the sexual revolution).

>>Angelina Jolie is supposedly going to play Dagny Taggart.

Supposedly she is a staunch libertarian or conservative herself. And of course her father, Jon Voight, has been a fierce critic of Obama.
