Ok Libertarians~ my other stomping grounds are dead, so maybe this would be a good time to finally defend your beliefs. Thats right, I said beliefs, because as far as I've seen there is no realistic, rational basis for ANY of the claims that the so called "libertarian" base makes. In fact, almost all evidence in context points away from your "ideal" society. So we will make it simple~ all you need to do is state your case, then back it up with something that can be considered evidence. That is, some relevant example of your policy or idea put into action, because all I see is a bunch of whiners trying to make America more like Somalia.
btw, I love what you did with the initial post~ can I give it a try?
Did I do it right?

If anything, Nerd, I built this room and put a sign on the door. Mind you, I fully understand how aggression can dissuade conversation; however, at the same time, I'm no stranger to the notion that a good tag-line and aggressive statement against a person's deeply held beliefs can also instigate conversation.
I guess the irony is just too much~ No one here bats an eye when someone goes on about how stupid it is for people to pray for rain; but when I bring up the people who put faith in "the invisible hand of the market" I'm told to be nicer (not necessarily referring to you, Nerd). People can go on and on about how churches shouldn't be tax exempt due to their interference with politics; but bringing up the people who really want to give more power to corporations needs to be handled delicately. We will go on and on about how fucked up religions are with their barbaric rituals and medieval beliefs~ but when I address the people who are actually advocating disassembling the federal gov't (and therefore our society) sensibilities are offended.
Btw, Nerd, I've been in other conversations with you, and I like the way you think~ but it is you who walked into my room and went "tsk tsk."
