There is a “Libertarian” talk show host in Austin in the PM. He is pro gay, pro abortion, somewhat anti gun rights, nanny state closet liberal. I turn off or mute the radio when he comes on with an ad for a local business during the Mark, Ed and SGT Sam show. Ed is a closet liberal too.
Off topic, but is your screen name a Babylon5 reference?
Times change, and so do societal values.
NO. The government’s idea of “the best environment for a child” is already on display. It isn’t God’s idea or mine, or yours, I assume.
The only thing republicans have in common with libertarians is a desire for small government. The rest of libertarian ideas are as liberal as the day is long.
I quit listening to them long ago.
Thank goodness for Sirius Radio. I keep mine tuned to the old radio programs we listened to as kids—before there was TV. I love it!
Putting aside this bizarre article ... I will say the basic premise of adding more libertarians to the mix sounds good to me. Given where we are ... a healthy addition of “let me the hell alone” couldn’t hurt.

No, I'm quite content with the government being held within the confines of Article 1, Section 8, as the founders intended.
I beg to differ. My position is the morality of this once great nation is the foundation of our system, suitable for the governance of a moral and religious people. Our system will not work without individual morals based on Christian values.
The argument is not about government sanctioning gay marriage or abortion, it is how we go about preventing people from doing such things.
Do we use the brute force of government, or do we persuade with fact and logic? The libertarian position is to persuade, not use government force. This is in line with the teachings of a Jewish carpenter I worship. He did much with persuasion.
You asked. I answered. It doesn’t get much more straight forward than that.
More than not, that’s on the mark.
When society sets the limit, scorn/ridicule/ostracization rule are about as ‘brutal’ as one gets. With gov’t limits, there is loss of $$, Liberty and/or Life
“Times change, and so do societal values.”
Morality is a constant.
What was immoral 1000 years ago or 200 years ago in still immoral today and will be immoral 100 years from now.
Lastly, we do not change our morals and thus our policies because of a poll.
Here is another thread explaining the matter:
i admit I have become more libertarian on social issues (for pot legalization now etc.), but I still am fairly socially conservative and definitely economically so.
I like to keep up with the local news and Mark and SGT Sam are usually on top of things. Ed, not so much.
The whole article is B/S. I;ve already told my kids, oldest being high school what marriage is and facts about the destruction of the family .
This article is about trying to tell conservatives do accept liberal policies pure and simple.
so we should let drugs be sold to kids next to a school ,l get rid of sex age laws for those dirty perverted men and have homosexuality, , fisting, feces sex and polygamy be taught to 5 year olds.
Yea right, liberaltarians only care about what they want while never paying taxes and let them go with the Dem party where they will be accepted with open arms seeing as they have more in common with them than conservatives
liberaltarians have been infesting our party for years because they know their own platform on sex age laws, incest, sex and drugs is a non starter for most people.
How many liberaltarians have been banned on here for pushing their liberal agenda and still they don’t get it, Ron Paul pushing his loon views on our platform is more evidence of liberals wanting their agenda pushed onto us.
I hope it means they are cozying up to the idea that putting a short leash on government is the one and only political idea that matters any more. Once that is accomplished, all of these social pathologies - that survive only by being promoted by ambitious politicians and judges with with too much government power on their hands - will disappear on their own.
and yet even back with the pilgrims judges , yes the Govt married people, now we have justice of the peace.
Liberaltarians want no laws while paying no taxes, they want incest laws to be gone, for their dirty perverted agenda.
Sell drugs next to schools, prostitutes outside schools, no drinking and driving laws, no sex age laws so the old men can have sex with little 12 year old girls.
Inject heroin in public in front of a family.
Nothing but scum bags who want to infest sites like this and use our platform to push their own agenda while trying to tell us to all change and accept their lifestyle.
First amendment, freedom of religion, something liberals hate.
