    Yeah...I've noticed that many who have taken the name "Libertarian" are just right-wingers who are too ashamed to call themselves Republicans anymore.

    They give the "true" Libertarians a bad name. Be careful "Libertarians"....the will do for you what they did for the Republican party.

    I'm not lecturing anyone on the fundamentals of "libertarianism". I agree with many of their policies and disagree with others. However, that said, I respect those who adhere to the fundamentals of the party.

    What I was commenting on...if you go back and re-read...is not about Libertarians at all. It was about those right-wing Republicans who are trying to distance themselves from the failures of the GOP and have decided to adopt the "Libertarian" label. These people will destroy the Libertarian party (if given a chance), the way they destroyed the Republican party.

    As a libertarian, I welcome them. As I bet many of them don't go back and become more informed with the ideals this nation was founded on.




    btw, re: your sig. How specifically did Obama do that?

    You might....however, I wouldn't doubt if those in control of the party are watching them very carefully.
    I can't see the Libertarian party adopting their right-wing social agenda simply to increase its numbers. And these people are not going to be content with a fiscally conservative agenda without a party that advocates their social agenda.

    BTW: Obama has improved our standing amongst our allies and our would-be allies by regaining the high ground that we lost under GWB.
    But....that's a different topic...not meant for this tread.

    As the saying goes, for every ten libertarians, there are eleven different opinions. The tea party movement is not libertarian because of their endorsement of authoritarian social policy and effective defense of corporatism.

    The only real libertarians I've seen on the forum are Harry Guerrilla and whoever else is willing to abandon defense of corporate capitalism and pursue a defense of free markets. That means not chanting that progressive taxation is theft, because there is no right to stolen property, and since it was originally created in theft generations ago, existing property is based in aggression.
