No wing: political equivalent to atheism?
Recently I have heard that when things are explained as for what they actually mean, no buzzwords, everyone's a libertarian. So please look at the pic and vote in the poll.

Hard to pick a favorite color when everything is either black, white or has no color at all. That's not how I see the world.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Libertarians are the political equivalent of this.

Only even more self-absorbed.

But no, I'm sure pathetically trite image macros will explain everything. It's sure easier than thinking!

By the way, Cjlr, don't bother posting, you're on my ignore list.

I'm not sure what do you mean by black or white. Let's talk about pizza. Have you ever been to the party, gone to take a leak and then found out people did this to you?

So leave the party.

But everyone else can see cjlr's posts so..... Tongue.

By the way, choices are too limited. I agree with EvenHeathen. These are not mutually exclusive.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

Where? The whole world is one big drunk party. It's the same everywhere, except in Somalia, where they have several parties and even more drinking.

Choices are limited? Who's limiting your choices?

Except some people actually feel value to authority and tradition which puts them at odds with libertarian interpretations. Not everyone actually thinks similarity.

I think your cartoon at the top is a simplistic caricature. Funny old thing, libertarians come out as *the* most reasonable and wonderful people on God's green Earth. I'm *guessing* the cartoon was put together... by some boy scout libertarian, to help people make the right political choices. How incredibly nice of him Smile

True. Shit's not fair, but there it is. What you have to realize is that what's ideal is not what is going to happen. Everything wrong with what we have at the party will begin again as soon as you make a new party, no matter what kind of party rules you try to implement. Someone will fuck around and break the rules and take advantage.

Excuse me, I need some more punch.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
