    That's pretty interesting and something I didn't know. I mean I knew it was a battle flag, I just didn't know it was from VA. Seems kind of weird that people would fight for their local government to raise a flag that their ancestors from the state didn't even fight under. I mean, I could understand if people from Virginia were making the argument, but now that I know that the flag is from VA, it seems kind of hollow for all of the non-VA folks to be making the claim too.

    I'm not exactly sure why I would care what a liberal thinks about any sort of philosophy. Your ideology is basically about combining two opposing view points on property and calling it rational.

    Well, if we're playing that game...."Libertarianism" is an ideology in the same way that saying you don't like any kind of pasta is a statement on which pasta is best.

    That would depend. Minarchists like pasta, but they're picky on the toppings and like small portions.

    Wow. I'm going to have to steal that from you.

    I always thought Libertardianism was nothing more than disillusioned Rethugliconism only with twice the paranoia and hatred for the poor.

    Oh, no at all. I'm going off on your understanding of libertarianism. The one which is completely allergic to all things government. It's not really an ideology at all. Is it? I mean if it is, then saying you don't like pasta at all is a statement on which one is best, correct?

    Wow, you are clearly an expert on libertarianism and its history.

    Libertardianism has no history. Well, other than Alex Jone$, a senile Ron Paul, and cynical rednecks who wave Chinese made American flags at minorities and/or the poor.

    Oh, she doesn't have to be. I, however, know very well your statements on the subject. Would you say that not believing in any state is an ideology of any sort? It really isn't. Political ideologies, at least the mainstream kind adopted by philosophers regardless of their leans, tend to have a response for different issues. Conservatives seem to want a government actively involved in dealing with criminals. Liberals want the government to stay out of their bedrooms, but deal with discrimination. Regardless of how they see it, they seem to understand that governments and states need to exist. What do libertarians like yourself want? NO GUB'MINT! NO STATE! That's hardly a response to any issue. It's intellectual laziness.
