Welcome to libertarianism.
Yesterday you accused me of being a libertarian or at least believing in libertarian ideas. Wasn’t sure how to take that because admittedly, I didn’t know much about them, and have heard disparaging things about them around here (on FR). So instead of hastily typing up a snarky reply, I went to their party website and perused a “quick list” of their party platform, and you know what? I’m ready to change my party affiliation to libertarian. I have a few minor issues with their platform, but in general they look good and reflect my values in the large. The R’s aren’t delivering in my opinion, and parties reflect their membership, not the other way around. Heck, the socialists took over the dems lock, stock, and barrel. So adios Republican party, you can keep all the self-important policy wonks who are just furthering the divide, and secretly laugh behind closed doors at the racket they’ve got going with the dems. They haven’t delivered positive results in twenty five years, and have only served to slow down the slide into socialism a little bit by playing the “good cop”, then do what they damned well please when elected, and never fail to dissapoint. Thanks for the epiphany.
