    Whatever. You are not a libertarian, you are a social conservative. Liberty is choice. The only choice we would have with our own lives is whether or not we live them. As such, I am in favor of euthanasia and suicide. As far as abortion, I think we simply need to relabel it "eviction" and make sure the fetus is removed intact so as to respect property rights.

    Also the anti-tea party mouthfoamers love to call it a rich movement, Shocked no ones tried that retrread yet.
    Given your uber defensive reactions to everything anyone says about your precious movement, all I would have to say is that it has a lot of rich people in it and I'm sure I would get an earfull.

    Well yes, when discussing a candidate one should look at the whole of their platform, not just one segment of it that caters to a specific group.

    That said, its as relevant to an indepth discussion of the tea party movement as talking about the anti-war movements stance on carbon emmissions is when talking about that movement.

    And the tea party movement is a largely conservative movement. Nothing wrong with pointing that out.

    The issue is when you start talking about specific portiosn of it. The Anti-war movement isn't about environmentalism, and the Tea Party movement isn't about social conservatism.

    The fact is, the unborn does not suffer any more than that once walking, breathing person did before they were on life support, when their support system is turned off. The only people suffering from abortion are pro lifers...

    So all libertarians must be pro-choice? If I am incorrect please correct me, but doesn't libertarianism support maximizing personal liberty? If someone believes that an unborn child has the right to life and they believe that it's an encroachment on that unborn child's liberty to electively kill it how is that against libertarian principals?

    Mostly tea partiers seems to make the association of white=racist. Rev won't even admit that he belongs to a movement comprised mostly of dissatisfied white people.

    My video was made to ask African Americans what they thought about Olberman's comments regarding African Americans and the Tea Party. It wasn't made to say "look a black guy! We aren't racist."
    Really? You are going to stick with that line of reasoning? Okey dokes.

    Well at least your moms was anti-abortion no?

    Just curious, do you think its a rich movement or not.

    I'd like for him to quote the LP.org's website the libertarian stance on abortion.

    Furthermore, when you provide a video that the sole purpose of using a black person because they are black then that is using them as a token. Every adverstiser does the same thing to attract more people of more diverstiy. I have not ascribed any label of racism to it.

    The fun here is that simply by mentioning race next to "tea party" calls up a defensive reaction, regardless of whether anyone makes any accusations of racism.
