    Nope. While I agree with some of the broad strokes of the Libertarian party, I strongly disagree with a lot of the details. The chances that I will ever support a Libertarian candidate are somewhere between slim and none.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    If he'd gotten the nomination he would have run, the defense stance turned off people he needed votes from but technically you are correct.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Then your objection is with the party platform, and not with the candidate?

    How do you feel about subsidies to corporations, the welfare state, giving money to foreign governments, and maintaining a military capable of policing the world?

    Are you on board with the war on drugs and having more prisoners per capita than any other nation?

    I'm not totally supportive of all of the planks in the Libertarian party platform either, but it comes closer than the Tweedledumocrats and the Tweedleblilcans to my own philosophy.

    Ron Paul, I objected to the person, who had views that were not reflected in the Libertarian platform, specifically his crazy religious beliefs. I also object to the party platform.

    How do you feel about subsidies to corporations, the welfare state, giving money to foreign governments, and maintaining a military capable of policing the world?
    I disagree with all of them, but specifically in relation to the military, I think the Libertarians go too far. While we should not be the planet's policeman, we should also not be isolationist, there is a comfortable middle-ground that we ought to seek.

    Are you on board with the war on drugs and having more prisoners per capita than any other nation?
    Hell, I think we ought to actually have a war on drugs and put 100% of all drug dealers to death. The only reason we have so many people in prison is because we're putting drug users away when we ought to be treating them. I will never vote for any party that favors total drug legalization. About the best I might do is compromise on marijuana legalization and even that leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

    I'm not totally supportive of all of the planks in the Libertarian party platform either, but it comes closer than the Tweedledumocrats and the Tweedleblilcans to my own philosophy.
    It comes nowhere near mine, sorry. Of course, there really are no conservative parties out there today. You've got the idiot lefty liberals and the idiot religious liberals, actual conservatism, not this stupid "neo-conservatism" simply is not represented by any existing party in the country.

    Totally agree with this.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Give him 3 more cents. He's not getting dick from me. You'll cover me, right?

    The problem is, you're going to start seeing this happening at most businesses, whether they make a big deal about it or not. Prices will rise by a few cents or portions will be reduced a little, to make up that extra money it's costing these companies. It's inevitable.

    You hear that, Deuce? Trail behind me with your piggy bank. I may want a burrito supreme and soft taco later, and PepsiCo may follow suit. I ain't paying them extra either.

    There's a point at which you run out of options, you either pay the piper or you don't eat. What do you do then?
