Republicans are pro-war want to control your thoughts, limit your freedom and intrude on your life.

Democrats are pro-war want to control your thoughts, limit your freedom and intrude on your life.

Libertarians believe in individual liberty, personal responsibility, no wars and don't care what you believe, what you do or how you live your life.

Vere dico.

It must be pointed out that while libertarians abhor war, they nonetheless advocate for a strong national defense.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and make a guess you're a Libertarian.

Guten Tag- I read the following which was part of a post re: Worship = War Ship...

"The Truth" doesn't need anybody speaking for it. The Truth needs no book, no doctrine, no dogma, no hierarchy. Truth stands on it own, the rest is pushing to compete with The Truth, which is "falsehood".

If Your truth needs to be PUSHED how true is it really?

The Truth is the only thing that never changes, in a world where "change" is the only 'constant'...

Pretty close, but can you really say rand fits that bill? I agree with the by the book definition, but can't say anyone is out there preaching this stuff.

Rand had to "sell his soul" to the tea party types to survive. Now he might drop them after he's elected, but who knows.

I could see him going all republican on welfare and health care, but still going to war and doing nothing on the war on drugs.

Personally, Libertarians scare the ever lovin' hell out of me. Anyone who thinks Ayn Rand is the cat's pajamas and shouts that much needs to be watched. Closely. From behind glass. Btw, read my signature..I'm the anti-war Democrat your parents hate.

Yep, but that's what libertarianism is good for - minimize the power of the government in your life and take control.

I lean libertarian in a lot of ways, and I have never actually read Ayn Rand. It's actually not required for someone to arrive at the line of reasoning that government is bigger problem than it solves in most cases.

So because you're scared to be free, none of the rest of us should be?

Define "freedom". Libertarianism is much like Communism - sounds great on paper...until you realize that you're still being ruled by an elite, they;'re just more honest about it. That and the fact that I like roads, parks and my taxes going to useful things. Libertarian paradise is rather like arming everyone in town, jailing the sheriff, and then resting knowing that nothing bad will happen.

That's why next ruler will be republican or democrat. On the other hand, do you want US of A to become thrird world country?

Not that anything is wrong with that.


DO

So Ayn Rand's ideas are batstuff crazy to you, but the dems spending money like it grows on trees is just fine?

Who needs a psych eval now?

You know what? At this very point in time, there are far, far more countries in the world that are going to accommodate you with Big Brother regimes willing to hold your hand and everything else for you. There aren't many places where I can find a country with rule of law that has minimal interference in my day to day life.

Where do you get that from?

Nothing you said here makes sense.

Standard anti-Libertarian hyperbolic rhetoric. I am waiting for him to invite us to move to Somalia because they have no functional government.
