The epitome of personal responsibility is no government at all.


My friend, that IS anarchy.

We are talking about politics. Anarchist have zero political power in your country. At best we are talking about hippies attending the burning man.

There are anarchists here too and they don't do politics neither.

We are talking about the American political spectrum. Anarchists are irrelevant in politics


The libertarians lie at the far right end. They generally stop just short of no government at all.

A true anarchist wouldn't want political power. At the moment, they march with the left because they want the chaos of revolution and the tearing down of government. That is anarchy. As soon as any new order would be established from that, the surviving anarchists would start to fight against it. That's more or less what anarchists do. I say surviving because the state controlled Utopia of the left would quickly seek to dispose of the anarchists just like those sorts of total control regimes do with all useful idiots.

And as I edited in my post, anarchists cannot win an election so the only way they could win is by overthrowing the government. And its evident that it will never happen in the US since American have lost the habit to protest.

Anarchy is officially out of the US political spectrum, excepted in the dreams of some idealists

Libertarian conservative? As opposed to a libertarian liberal?

Can you point me to a prominent example of each?

Americans are not currently capable of a revolution. Revolutions happened in many countries around the world but the day Americans truly march for less statism instead of doing armchair politics between two superbowls I'll eat my hat

No, Americans will still protest. Today they seem to protest as their politics tells them to. Not because something is right.

I'm not holding my breath but I will be the first to be happy to see Americans massively march against the abuse of their government. The whole world is waiting for this too.

If you want to see real governmental abuse...

All the protesters have to do is step out of their designated area where they are allowed to express their grievances.

Take it to the streets?....not anymore!

It would be nice. We some famous peeps to rally the masses I'm thinking though. Some charasmatic leader to step forward. It's always been that way...Martin Luther King, Gandhi to name just two.

Reading list for libertarian left.

Reading list for libertarian right.

You should recognize some of the names on those lists.

I don't see why. Protests and marches are pretty normal in our cultures. It doesn't automatically means violence. It's a way to remind the politics who has the power of the number

It was called the TEA Party. You all made fun of us and called us dangerous right wing radicals. Remember? Jon Stewart held an event to mock us.

We aren't gone. We're just working the system.

Canadian here I see it all. 2 words that Americans have to get over is "communism" and "socialism". To start with there's many socialistic aspects to American society. AND China and the USSR weren't communistic or socialistic. They were/are totalitarian regimes. Don't diss the system.

We'll see how it works for the party of WASPs and Christian fundies...

Currently you are correct, mostly a source of mockery

You weren't in a free speech zone when you said that.

I'm afraid you are about to receive a fine, penalty, I mean a patriotic notice to give money to the new Sub-Division of the Department of Homeland Security of Talking Too Freely When You Aren't In A Free Speech Zone As Designated By Your Government.

Or just

For short.

Thank you for your cooperation.

So right wing? Really?

Is it that time again???

Me thinks you need to take a closer look at the posts around here.

If it's not a fifty fifty split, it's darned close.


Perhaps as you and others suggest it is my own bias that causes me to perceive a lot of conservatives. H

However, the polls indicate that might not be the case.

According to this recent poll....

Out of the top 10 most voted for options (which was more than 92% of the vote) NOT everyone, because that's too much math

-about 57% of people voted for republicans

-about 25% of people voted for "none of the above"

-less than 19% of people voted for democrats

So it seems to me that more people are republicans than democrats, at least who are politically interested enough to vote in forum polls. Do you disagree?

ps, I'm a seahawk fan too!
