Racist Dog.

Yes, in the spirit of the Tbox, it is a depiction of the white man putting down, oh so subtely, the Scot, not Mr Scot, but hey, white man always stepping on the Scots. Kurb, once again, you can spy these things out to the benefit of humanity. Kudos to you. (tongue firmly in cheek)

so libertarian is an insult now?

Yeah, I can see that.

arguing that one can be "socially liberal" while being "economically conservative" is pretty fuging silly and it appears as though that's the gist of american libertarianism soooo

Thank God Almighty we have Gosposdin here to remind us that everything is attributable to racism. As for libertarianism... God forbid anyone actually believe that we should be able to live as we see fit so long as we don't infringe upon the rights of others.

When you have someone actually take something from you personally and find that your trust in putting government in power hinges upon those guys up top actually siding with your world-view, you might have a shot at actually getting the gist of what the real world is about. Until then, continue with your pedantic rantings of arrested development afforded by living in an ivory tower.

this is quite the word salad

also basically libertarians.txt, right down to the self serving "WHEN YOU GROW UP AND SEE THE REAL WORLD" bullshit and endless faith in the inherently flawed "free market"

Oh no, Cantrell doesn't like government, he hates them, 'cause just like everyone else, they're beneath him and his giant intellect... He doesn't like them, but thinks its ok for them to tax the poo out of everyone... Because hey, those dirty rich people deserve it.

No it isn't.

YOU just can't understand it.

You should open your mind to new ideas.

Stereotyping a group as silly isn't a very nice thing to do.

I think you might be a little bit of a classist.

Most people know what communism is at its most basic level. Simply put, communism is the idea that everyone in a given society receives equal shares of the benefits derived from labor. Communism is designed to allow the poor to rise up and attain financial and social status equal to that of the middle-class landowners. In order for everyone to achieve equality, wealth is redistributed so that the members of the upper class are brought down to the same financial and social level as the middle class. Communism also requires that all means of production be controlled by the state. In other words, no one can own his or her own business or produce his or her own goods because the state owns everything.

Doesn't sound like liberal ideology at all...

He is right, when viewed from a very specific lens of what "liberal" and "conservative" mean.

Which is a funny thing to bring up given this thread's new title.

I didn't think many self-respecting libertarians identified themselves as fiscally conservative socially liberal, since, oh about 1997 in the height of the clinton years anyway.

The two words have been watered down so much over the years in the controlling parties' attempts to grow their tents that they have little actual meaning anymore. Seems like I made a thread about that very subject several years ago... *searches forums in a frenzy*
