    Not going to happen.

    Not today, not tomorrow, not ever.

    About thirty years from now whites will be a minority of the U.S. population.

    Think about it.

    maybe i missed that post. I am a card carrying member of the libertarian party. I have been to the rallies from time to time and have helped raise funds. In short, i have been around a lot of libertarians. I can say that not once has repealling the 1964 civil rights act come up. Maybe they are hiding it from me, but it seems more likely that you are mistaken.

    That is also you mistaking a statement of what one believe the right to be as a call to repeal legislation.

    You asked for an example of something ridiculous that libertarians hold to be true, I gave you an example. If you don't understand the example, ask specific questions and I'd be happy to answer them.

    Re: Same sex marriage compromise

    In my opinion, there shouldn't be any legally recognized marriages. At least when it comes to taxes and other benefits. People who want to get benefits should have to go through legally recognized civil unions. Marriage is a religious ceremony and should remain as such and have no legal standing.
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

    Of course he was asking you to explain why it was ridiculous.

    Because it's wholly unsupported by logic or reason, of course.
