    So who's promoting a welfare state?
    You are, you drain people's pockets to buy votes.

    3) machiavellian control freaks who see a socialist government as reins upon society they can grab
    Good god you have no idea what socialism is...
    Remember George Orwell in 1984 speaking out against big gov and big brother? Guess what he was a socialist... Does he want the gov to control everything? Cuz apparently to TurtleDudes world that is what socialism is... George Orwell a socialist spoke out against that...

    Leftwingers and socialists talking about what the Founders intended; now that's hysterical.

    It's nothing compared to when Michele Bachmann talks about history.

    socialists and other similar forms of collectivists always want to depict that cancer as some pristine philosophical pure program while ignoring all the ugliness and dead bodies that have been caused by their ideal when it is applied to the real world

    Since no turtledude seems to think socialism equals big government totalitarianism let's hear from an actual socialist. Albert Einstein. Even turtledude can't be foolish enough to call Einstein lazy or whatever insults he usually uses. Read this to learn what socialism is: Why Socialism? :: Monthly Review

    My "kind" is the working class, and thanks for confirming my assessment.

    I don't think that general statement is true of most libertarians, only the extreme far right conservatives that pose as libertarians because the Republican party is too liberal to suit their taste.
