There are times when you just let the post speak for itsef
I have never, nor ever will, call myself a libertarian - and if you have these warning signs, you're a right-wing 'Social Conservative' who, in my opinion, doesn't have a clue about the reality of modern life.
Notice a propensity of newly minted Libertarians showing up lately? Perhaps it's just coincidence their ranks swelled in inverse proportion to George Bush's approval rating, ditto that so many are mouthing traditional conservative talking points. But what about the everyday gun toting townhall screamers and taxcutters and deficit hawks we see on cable news: are they really libertarian as so many claim, or just conservatives in glibertarian clothes?
My personal favourite:
If you believe you have an inalienable right to attend Presidential townhalls brandishing a loaded assault rifle, but that arresting participants inside for wearing a pink shirt is an important public safety precaution, there's a chance you're dangerously unbalanced, but no chance you're a Libertarian.
Is it because the conservative of today is actually running scared of calling themselves what they are - or is it they have no idea what a libertarian actually is?
I'll leave that up to you to ponder.
