I am a libertarian of sorts, don't tell me what I am.
Of sorts huh?
Yeah, okay then.
the state of being free within society from oppressive restrictions imposed on one's way of life, behavior, or political views.
You had to go to a dictionary for your retort?
The difference between you and I is that I recognize that restrictions can be imposed by sources other than the government.
So, that is nice an all, except it flies in the face of what this thread is about.
The outside forces, non Govt forces which you claim to recognize are the personal beliefs of the business owner.
You like to use this when convenient for your stance, and throw it out when not.
We as the people, have the right to legislate to stop such restrictions from occurring, an should rightfully do so when such restrictions are based on
grounds that the one being restricted does not have the ability to change.
That was a lot of "restrictions" used.
So, mob rule, removing the rights of the individual to follow that of the group.
Yea, that is a perfect example of the Progressive/Collective mindset. But, do please go on about how Libertarian you and your ideals are.
Seems like common sense to me. This is how you apply the 14th Amendment across the board.
Sorry that I'm not on the bandwagon of labeling everything that I don't agree with as "progressive" and acting like that makes it a wash.
An apology for not calling something what it is? Apology excepted I guess.
I'm not a tactless assclown.
It's called freedom; if you can't do things base on intrinsic attributes of your being simply because people want to persecute you even though you
aren't harming anyone, that is not freedom, and there will be regulations surrounding it. This is just how it works.
So, there is Freedom, only if the mob deems it as worthy and falling within line to their view of it.
Your statements are very much encased within double standards. If you can't see that, you never will.
