Agreed. But the philosophical principles of libertariansim (as opposed to the diametrically opposing official LP party stance which in fact BETRAYS and CONTRADICTS libertarian principle in much the same way that Romney betrayed true conservatism) marks some of the THE FINEST conservative thinkers in America: Thomas Sowell. Milton Friedman. Walter E. Williams. Or, Absolutely Nobama, prove otherwise by posting anywhere idea and opinions put forth by them that are leftist? No? Why is that? Because the official LP Party is fraudulent ... but STUPID PARTY "conservatives" are rejecting a vast number of Americans who are philosophical allies (who aren't members of the LP party but who consider themselves somewhat libertarian) becuase stupid-emotional "conservatives" STUPIDLY ignore what libertarianism really is, and allow themselves to be used LIKE THE TOOLS THEY ARE by the Marxists who have taken over the LP. Tools like yourself are rejecting on false premises those Americans who could join us in votes to SAVE AMERICAN FREEDOM.
IT IS STUPID AND SUICIDAL for "conservatives" to reject out of hand a philosophical principal (not the official political party, whicn NO ONE, an certainly not me, is advocating) of libertarianism (HELLO??? That's small-l libertarian) shared by some of the finest conserative minds on politics today.
Free Republic is REPLETE with Stupid Party people.
“Or, Absolutely Nobama, prove otherwise by posting anywhere idea and opinions put forth by them that are leftist?”
Where should I start ? Dismantling the military ? Surrendering to al-Qaeda ? Rampant atheism ? Ron Paul, perhaps ?
Small “l” libertarianism is fine, on certain issues. On economic matters, I’m a a libertarian. On the Constitution, I’m an originalist. On matters like repealing the 17th Amendment, fine by me. (For that matter, I could also be called far right.)
