A joke for Libertarians

Came across this joke, don't know who to attribute it to. If you are weary of political infighting it should merit a chuckle.

I was walking home one evening and came upon a clearly depressed man standing at the edge of a bridge, looking like he was about to jump. I called out to him to wait, and ran over to see what was the matter.

"It's this country," he lamented. "It's falling into ruin and there's nothing I can do about it. The election was the last straw. I don't want to live on this planet anymore."

"Well cheer up," I said. "We're all in this together. Say, are you a conservative, or a libertarian?"

"A libertarian," he said.

"That's great!" I said. "See, you're not alone. Are you a free-market libertarian or a libertarian socialist?"

"Free-market libertarian," he said.

"Me too!" I said. "Paleo-libertarian or neo-libertarian?"

"Paleo-libertarian," he said.

"Hey, so am I!" I said. "Chicago or Austrian school of economics?"

"Austrian," he said.

"Me too," I said. "Hayek or Rothbardian strand?"

"Rothbardian," he said.

"Same here," I said. "Are you a consequentialist or deontological libertarian?"

"Consequentialist," he said.

So I said, "Die, statist scum!" and pushed him off the bridge.

Haha. I wasn't expecting that punch line.
So maybe if we backtracked just a little we could all find common ground?

Caution strong language, but reminded me of this.
