    You're speaking of objectivist libertarians.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    OK. So partial libertarians would not have as many laws scratched off the books. Which ones?

    Clearly it is not my ignorance of what is being discussed, but yours, and your desire to make things personal when they are not.

    So what "rights" would you like to take away from Americans today?

    No. You called what you thought you saw and attempted to make it personal.
    You were wrong.

    What exactly do you mean by partial? Libertarianism started in the 18th century. Objectivism is a philosophy from the 1950's that dry-humped its way into American politics to justify corporatist abuse of society. They're about as Libertarian as Karl Marx.

    In the days of the founding fathers blacks were considered sub human so you cant define their actions by todays thinking. Slaves were more livestock than actual slaves, they were used as beast of burden.A true slave would be more like someone you captured in a war that you kept "enslaved" like the American Indians did when they warred with other tribes.

    Ron Paul's son is against desegregation.. a lot of republicans are too, just talk to them on this site. They think the government shouldn't have desegregated.
