    Sure, keep telling yourself that. Libertarians ought to disdain the administrations of Washington and Adams. Isolate political power to the pseudo-aristocracy of America, have your political representatives representing the people-but telling them that they themselves make the decisions-not the people, enjoy state-based religion, enjoy loose interpretation of the Constitution, encourage the Supreme Court as having judicial review, have the President surrounded by monarchistic tendencies of court, promote a National Bank,a national university, high protective tariffs, crush political dissent in times of near-war and rebellion, turn the state's attention toward a strong-national government instead of state power.

    You folks are the Jeffersonians..frequently accused of being mere Jacobins in their eyes...democrats with fanciful views of the extent of human liberty and the progress of History.

    The concept of "big government" today is vastly different than during the Washington and Adams Administrations.
    It sure is. It's more democratic, but it still sees the national government as the center of political discourse.

    Blah, blah, blah. Uneducated this, uneducated that. Heh. What a joke. Why would any sane, unbiased person believe some random poster on the internet, like you, as opposed to a former president of the APA itself? I'm sure mister internet noboy knows way more than he does. Uh-huh.

    I posted all the information that demonstrates that you are uneducated and know nothing on this topic. This is now fact. Don't like it? Educate yourself.

    I have never been able to figure out what the hell a libertarian is. Libertarian, left, right, moderate, which one is it? You can't have it three ways.

    I almost feel sorry for school administrators these days. It's a no-win job. No matter what happens in your school, somebody's going to crawl up your ass about it.
    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.

    As a libertarian (and conservative) I can tell you what I'm trying to conserve and that is classical liberalism and the ideas that founded this land, however these alleged "liberals" er progressives cannot tell me their socioeconomic goal. "Progress" in my opinion seems to be a wandering fashion and a wandering political philosophy.
    You can't be a Libertarain and a Conservative. Conservatism goes against the core principles of Libertarianism.

    The fact that you can't see this tells me what you really are.
