    If you apply that standard to all government spending, you can kiss roads and bridges goodbye.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    "Social justice" is nothing more than a term used by the Left to disguise their unjust theft of property and freedoms.
    Which of course is totally different from the unjust theft of property and freedoms favored by the Right, right?

    Damn if I know.

    I don't know of any unjust programs of theft promoted by libertarians.

    How about if you stop building straw men and start discussing what is said?

    "Social justice" as the term is currently used is based on the false premises that life is "fair" and that if someone does not have as much as someone else, society must provide the means to make up the differnece.

    So, no.

    That is because a Libertarian is like the angry 15 year old in the room who never has any ideas of his own but thinks everyone's ideas are ****ty. They're teens pretending to be grown ups and in some cases grown ups who have yet to realize they're not teens anymore. I guess it's just easier to talk a big game when you don't have any significant amount of constituents.

    The term is so loosely defined that anyone can claim almost anything falls under the umbrella of social justice.

    I can't support it at all.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
