    Obvious bait thread is obvious.
    Haymarket will never understand that the only two things that makes a libertarian are the principle of self ownership and the non-aggression principle.
    Haymarket's "support" of the 2nd Amendment, a right he believes we never had.

    I just don't understand how Libertarians reconcile their beliefs on abortion esp on this site. I see a lot of Libertarian leans right. When Libertarians talk about abortion on here a lot of them use the same emotional appeals as my far left ideological cousins use on gun control. All that motivated me to start this thread and if that makes me a political hack so be it.

    I do find the calls of this being a baiting thread humorous. I liked a lot of posts on here from people on both sides of the spectrum. I also admitted a mistake in quoting someone too. How often do you see in a thread let alone both of those things done. Treat people with respect and most likely it will be returned, even on a Internet message board.

    Don't you love it when people try to tell us what we're supposed to believe, not because of what they believe, but because of what they believe we believe?

    That sums up many of Internet political message board threads...

    Well, probably the same way that some democrats are fiscally conservative and pro-gun rights, while some republicans are supportive of welfare programs and pro-choice. We all have variations in what we most strongly identify with. I am fiscally conservative and socially liberal, and although I have strong ethical and moral codes of behavior, I don't expect other people to live up to my standards. As long as they aren't stepping on my toes, I don't care how they live, or what they do. Some republicans are pro-choice, and some democrats are pro-life. None of us tend to strictly adhere to what the typical party line dictates.
    I value liberty and individual rights over ideological beliefs.

    It's called Huttese, actually. And yes, I am the nerdiest ****ing troll to ever live. Thinks for asking that in the back of your mind.

    since i am a constitutional libertarian, i tend to look at my right lean, as -- states powers.

    since JAMES MADISON states that.... the life's, liberty, and property of the people, are a state power and not a federal power.

If they believe that it is still part of a woman's body, and therefore not a separate person yet, they are on the pro-choice side.
    Good post. But it is irrational to believe that the fetus is a mere appendage as is evidenced by the baby's eventual birth.
