    A lot of them claim to be Libertarians, though. Haven't gotten the memo that there's more to it than taxes yet.

    LOL! There has been nothing at all to prevent hordes of one-time neocon boosters and Bush supporters from claiming to have been libertarians all along in hapless attempt to avoid the humiliations associated with their prior identifications. Why, you might be one of those yourself for all we know.

    Yes, why not? Lots of people claim to be what they're not. Self described conservatives are quite often big government authoritarians in reality. There is much confusion caused by the fact that political terms have different meanings to different people, after all. As for me, I get accused of being a flaming liberal more often than being a "neocon", whatever that means, or a conservative. Perhaps my stance on the war on drugs has something to do with that, or perhaps it is my lack of belief that the current president is in reality a Marxist America hating Muslim terrorist.

    A lot of conservatives are calling themselves libertarians because they don't want to call themselves Republicans after the Bush administration.

    Can't blame them for that.

    Don't forget Nostradamus. Mabus, baby. ObaMABUSh. Hell, if we can't tell the difference, can't blame Nostradamus for not knowing.

    Or maybe it's the Secretary of the Navy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ray_Mabus. He's the anti-christ.

    Canada has a freer economy than the US, at least according to the freedom index. So I can't blame them.

    They shouldn't if they're not libertarian. Libertarian is very different from conservative. There is some overlap, but they're not the same thing.

    Yeah and one of the reasons for that is economic mobility, especially in regards to health care.

    I pay for my health care via taxes, because of that whichever province I move to will provide me health care as long as I sign up for their provincial insurance plan, which is free except BC which is $50 a month I believe.

    So therefore I don't have to be tied to a particular job because of Health Benefits and therefore can find which section of the economy I can be more productive in, which is exactly what I did.
