    Liberalism—dividing up the EARNED wealth of honest, hard working and ingenious AMERICANS and giving it to the leeches who would rather waste their worthless lives living off the government teat.

    I am all for less regulation, but we also have to balance it with the needs of society. Not all regulation is bad, but not all freely regulated things are good either.
    See the needs of society are secondary, the rights and liberty of the individual is what rules. And yes some Democrats may share my views though more traditional Democrats, noting urks me more than more regulations to remove power of the people or the individual states. Overall, the fed needs to be 1/2 the size it is now if not smaller, meaning half if not more of the fed govs bloated bureaucratic organizations need to go bye bye. I seriously doubt many Democrats would still be smiling at that.

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Hard to say... an abortion is a violation of the non-aggression principle but so is using force to stop people from doing so (prohibition.)

    IMO the only logically consistent point of view a libertarian can have is being anti-abortion but pro-choice.

    Libertarianism is not anarchism. Libertarians believe in using force to stop force.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    Agreed, what in what I wrote makes you say this to me as if I didn't already know this?

    Not if said act of force is a legal right. IMO the only justified use of force is in self-defense/retaliation which one could argue, say in the case of the survival of the mother, is an act of self-defense.

    A fetus has no legal rights, a pregnant woman does.

    I think a libertarian could be either or on the subject of abortion. In fact I would think a libertarian regardless of their own personal beliefs would rally behind the people having more control over what the majority in their local/state governments desire and support through the ballot box.

    Just like every other ideology, for 99% of the people it comes down to whether a fetus should have rights.
