    Uh that has no basis in fact or logic. I suspect trust funders tend to be more dem. Look at Kerry-he married into money. Ted Kennedy-Trust funder. Rockefeller-trust funder.

    more stupidity in that post. You assume tax cuts for the rich sacrifice the economy when the tax cuts for other people does not?

    what i know is that rich haters like you pretend that the rich are responsible for the problems this country faces when in reality, the rich cannot outvote the masses and thus politicians cater to the most votes

    Just the opposite. I suspect the poster and others view the rich as a very important part of the solution.

    Real libertarians wouldn't support intervention in other countries, but they may still support large amounts of military spending depending on how it was used.

    I've noticed the conservative posters always resort to insults when they are losing.

    If you say something that is really stupid-such as claiming private property is theft which has no basis in logic or common law etc why shouldn't we note that such a claim is stupid?

    and I could note that I am merely attacking a stupid comment while you are essentially calling people like me "thieves" which is a personal insult

    Here is the official Libertarian Party platform on defense:

    "We support the maintenance of a sufficient military to defend the United States against aggression.
    The United States should both avoid entangling alliances and abandon its attempts to act as
    policeman for the world. We oppose any form of compulsory national service."

    Platform | Libertarian Party

    I agree with that 100%! Do you?

    I suspect there are many other parts that you despise
    Libertarians want all members of society to have abundant opportunities to achieve economic
    success. A free and competitive market allocates resources in the most efficient manner. Each
    person has the right to offer goods and services to others on the free market. The only proper role of
    government in the economic realm is to protect property rights, adjudicate disputes, and provide a
    legal framework in which voluntary trade is protected. All efforts by government to redistribute
    wealth, or to control or manage trade, are improper in a free society.


    ll persons are entitled to keep the fruits of their labor. We call for the repeal of the income tax, the abolishment of the Internal Revenue Service and all federal programs and services not required under the U.S. Constitution. We oppose any legal requirements forcing employers to serve as tax collectors. Government should not incur debt, which burdens future generations without their consent. We support the passage of a "Balanced Budget Amendment" to the U.S. Constitution, provided that the budget is balanced exclusively by cutting expenditures, and not by raising taxes.
