Throw the Christians to the lions.
We sent the Republican party a message that we couldn't be taken for granted.
How? Libertarians think you can get rich by getting rid of the government. The rich know you get richer by using the government. It is the height of naivete to think the government will go away or the rich won't do what they want to do. That is why Libertarians are powerless.
Persons have a right to be protected against the initiation of force, and libertarianism has no basic principles that answer the question of when personhood begins.
For the billionth time--it's not a question of personhood. It is a question of who gets to make the decision to abort or not abort--the individual or the state, as libertarians like to put it. This implied omission/lie is obfuscation to give McArdle wiggle room to jump to whichever side is politically expedient at a moment's notice. She's an opportunistic coward.
I don't share the libertarian confidence that we are going to achieve massive new affirmative steps in our direction; a lot of the things we want, like a simpler tax code and privatized social security, are actually issues that the Republican leadership agrees with us on, and the greater American public does not.
You just lost the down payment for your house in the stock market. And you still want to invest your social security in the stock market. You are a very, very stupid woman.
