    Do you know the difference between YOUR and YOU'RE?

    seriously? if you are going to insult me with your specious claims that I am "barking and frothing at the mouth" how about doing it with proper grammar

    but he was far far better than the two alternatives

    Perhaps you should ask the fascist moderator, Korimyr the Rat. I'd like to know what he thinks.

    He tortured and murdered people, built torture camps, engaged in a treasonous conspiracy to invade a country that hadn't attacked us, spent a trillion dollars conquering and destroying that country, got tens of thousands of people killed (and hundreds of thousand indirectly through the chaos that ensued), turned the United States into a global pariah, conspired with dictators against foreign democracies, did nothing while an American city was destroyed and then left it to rot, hired prostitutes and actors to pose as reporters and praise him during press conferences, removed embarrassing remarks from official transcripts, enforced a five-mile-wide protest-free zone around himself, forced people to make personal loyalty oaths to him if they wanted to talk to him, falsified government documents as a matter of routine, shrouded the entire government in secrecy, had the Department of Homeland Security investigating his opponents, ignored subpoenas, and for all intents and purposes declared himself Emperor.

    So no, Turtle, George W. Bush was not "better than the alternatives" by any stretch of even the most twisted imagination - he was a savagely Orwellian, murdering liar, and Republicans preferred and still prefer him over his opponents because he cut their taxes. That's it. He paid them off. They sold their country for a tax cut, and will do it again at the first opportunity. The Republican Party is no longer American in any way, shape, or form. It is a treasonous, seditious pustule consisting of people who are only in it for themselves alone, and willing to subject their own children to a hellish future for the immediate illusion of personal wealth. That anyone would say mass-murder, torture, and the elimination of the 4th Amendment was preferrable to tax increases is beyond unconscionable. You should be ashamed to even imply such things.

    The point of this thread is that libertarian ideology is so easily puppeteered by people like Bush, Cheney, and Rove.

    In other words, you don't actually care what's true and what isn't - you're just trying to disrupt discussion.

    If you have no interest in an honest discussion, you're welcome to back out at any time. There's no need for this childish effrontery if you'd rather avoid talking about these subjects.

    I thought the topic was some nonsense about libertarians enabling facsism, not repeating every piece of anti-bush propaganda there is.

    If you read the discussion that's already occurred, you'll understand there have already been several substantive exchanges. If you don't feel that you have something to offer that might add to what's been said, I'm sure there is some other thread that might interests you more. But if you do have meaningful thoughts on the discussion, they're welcome. Make a decision anytime.

    Feel free to specifically deny something I said. Any time. In fact, I'm straight-up daring you.
