    There's no way around that. Though I'd love to see you try to find one.
    How many times has this question been answered? We've already shown it happening with little to no repercussions. What the **** do you want?

    Bill Maher: New Rule: Not Everything in America Has to Make a Profit

    Lets also mention in this link his excuse making for something less than capitalism....

    NOT LIBERTARIAN


    Next up, Gun Control oh and abortion, along with a little attack on the teaparty:

    Congress is getting ready for a vote for the 'No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion' Act. That's right, in 'teabagger' America, if you're going to take an innocent life, it had better be by a gun." -Bill Maher

    So taxpayer funded abortions: NOT LIBERTARIAN

    "One other thing I do not like about Ronald Reagan. He got shot and did not come out for gun control. I thought he missed a really good opportunity." -Bill Maher

    NOT LIBERTARIAN




    Shall I go on, or can it be your turn now? I have global warming, among other things in the magazine... click click.....


    Please quote his stances that support his libertarian claim.


    we all know how this ends.

    As much as we all love to categorize people as us/them, black/white, liberal/conservative, Maher just doesn't fit neatly into one of those categories. I would say he is left of center, but his views are not down-the-line liberal.

    From Wikipedia:

    Maher eschews political labels, referring to himself as "practical".[35] In the past, he has described himself as a libertarian and has also referred to himself "as a progressive, as a sane person".[36][37]

    Maher favors a partial privatization of Social Security

    Conservative

    , ending corporate welfare and federal funding of non-profits,

    Liberal

    and legalization of gambling, prostitution, and marijuana.

    Libertarian

    Maher is a member of NORML's Advisory Board, an organization which supports regulated legalization of marijuana.

    Liberal

    He describes himself as an environmentalist, and he has spoken in favor of the Kyoto treaty on global warming on his show Real Time. He often criticizes industry figures involved in environmental pollution.[38]

    Maher is a board member of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

    Liberal

    Before the 2004 U.S. presidential election, Maher became candid in his stated opposition to the re-election of George W. Bush and in his support for John Kerry.[39]

    Liberal

    Known for protesting against the demonization of the word "liberal", during the campaign Maher criticized Kerry for being ashamed of the word. On his show, the comedian has noted the paradox of people claiming they distrusted "elite" politicians while at the same time wanting elite doctors to treat them and elite lawyers to represent them in court.[40] Maher supports the death penalty. Since the 9/11 attacks, he has endorsed the use of racial profiling at airports.[41]

    Liberal

    He was originally against the Iraq War, and has summarized his opinion by saying that the United States and the world have had to pay too high a price for the war. He is skeptical of Iraq surviving without civil war.[42]

    Liberal

    In the 2008 U.S. presidential election, Maher announced his support for Barack Obama.[43] Although Maher welcomed Obama's electoral victory, he has subjected him to criticism once in office for not acting boldly on health care reform and other progressive issues.[44]

    Liberal

    On February 23, 2012, after his 'Crazy Stupid Politics' special streamed on Yahoo! Screen, Maher announced that he was contributing $1 million to Priorities USA, the Obama SuperPAC.

    Liberal
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    But based on your own standard stated here, why are you so animated about Rush Limbaugh? Perhaps he feels he should be outraged about what Fluke said. Who are you to tell him he shouldn't be? Your hypocrisy never ends.

    It's obviously way above YOUR head, anyway.

    All that and you still have not managed to show anything except a simplistic view of idiology.

    Bill Maher supports partial privitization of Social Security-generally libertarian position, not liberal

    Supports ending federal funding for non profits-generally libertarian position, not liberal

    Supports legalization of prostitution, gambling and drugs-generally libertarian positions, somewhat liberal.

    He self identifies as a libertarian or progressive. So what we have is some one who has a complex set of views that does not fit into a good soundbite, but closest fits what we tend to call here Libertarian-left. What he is not, nor does he claim to be, is a liberal.

    This is not complex stuff. I know that you conservatives love to label any one who does not agree 100 % with you guys on the issues and liberals, but that is just stupid.

    Are you saying that the only way Rush could demonstrate his being outraged was to call her a slut and that she should be forced to make porn for the taxpayer to watch?

    Did I say that? I think we need to change the culture, we need to stop the holocost of dead infants for the sake of convienence, I understand laws wont change it, but changing peoples minds will, Like Aparthied, gay rights, womens rights, once we understand these little people growing inside us are alive like you and I, the thought of abortion will become as repulsive to the individual as taking of anothers life.


    That said, Libertarians are not anarchists, I am for banning of elective abortions after the 2nd trimester., It's a start, but won't stem the flood of abortions until we change peoples minds.

    this is more conservative then it is libertarian.

    Supports ending federal funding for non profits-generally libertarian position, not liberal
    Most conservatives support ending federal funding of non profits.

    Supports legalization of prostitution, gambling and drugs-generally libertarian positions, somewhat liberal.
    this is the only position of his that is actually libertarian. He wants to smoke pot and have you looked at the man? Of course he supports prostitution. That's just pragmatism.

    He self identifies as a libertarian or progressive.
    Yet only funds liberals for election. I wonder why.

    such ignorance. If I put a bullet in your head, the government forces me to go to jail... The thesis of Libertarianism is liberty, I have the right to do what I please as long as it doesn't affect the rights of another. Some of us believe there is "another" inside that woman.
