Libertarianism and right-wing stupid are polar opposites. Your confusion over the issue is completely understandable since there are so many stupid right-wingers who think they're libertarian. To illustrate however, you won't find banning abortion, opposition to gay marriage, supporting US imperialism, or endorsement for the "war" on drugs or immigration coming from any legitimate libertarian source. All of those positions and many many more are antithetical to the libertarian philosophy.

Just coming off the cuff like romney! Lol! I guess your proud of the job that bush did? You do understand the logic of action & reaction! What bush did to this country should've been prosecuted in court under capitol punishment. That being said, Obama had to spend money to stop americas landslide of decline. Also brazil has universal healthcare & they're ranked#1. Canada also ranked amongst the best & they have universal healthcare. You people just want to cry about everything because you loss. Your missing the bigger picture. Americas has changed & them same middle class you think your representing are the same ones that voted for obamacareknowing full well they will have to pay a lil more for the sake of the less fortunate. Either your not middle class or your stuck in the past!

I don't think so.

SOMEONE had to stand up and lead the storm ravaged state of this nation.

The man was just doing his job-WELL---showing what REAL leadership looks like again (NOT panty waist political campaign pandering).

An interesting way of show "moral fiber."
The only people the Patriot act should bother-are the ones that are doing something WRONG.

You have a problem with that--you might want to reflect--INWARD, on your OWN lifetime of FAILINGS and stupidity!

FACT-it was the Democrat convention that the lemming herd packs got themselves confused on using the word "God", so patheTically so, they decided to "vote" on it, three times, before they could figure out what ever in the fuhell they were trying to figure out.
One time where anyone COULD lump and label that particular moment as a building full of lemming herd pack Idiots in action.

Obabamcare in it's current form is nothing but robbing the pockets of those out there every day ---(especially the poor saps at minimum wage jobs)--the BIGGEST sector of UN/ or NO insurance due to laxck of affordibility!

Add in this rotten apple cart barrel before the already broke back mule--people are gonna be really pissed when they figure out--the GRUBBERMINT has STUCK it to their working class broke-backs yet again-for NOTHING.

Now I'd have to support the Occupy whatever lamebrains IF and when they figure THAT out.

Hell, I'd help 'em make some "here's your signs" signs then!!!

Rising costs following the full implementation of Obamacare is a function of rising costs of health care period. The only real falsehood here is the claim that Obamacare will magically reduce or check those costs but those costs will continue to climb with the more customers the government delivers to the health care industry.

Its economics at its simplest but is overlooked for all the hooplah.

Galt is making some very good arguments but you still can't manage to get it. You're welcome to preach PREVENTION all you want, its when you want the government to enforce your "moral" convictions that you run afoul of small government types.

That's the problem with handing the government a blunt instrument like the PATRIOT Act. You're assuming that the government will always get it right and only employ it against BAD people. That's an awful lot of faith to put in a government that has regularly disregarded its citizens' guaranteed rights.

Again, no facts, just blah, blah, blah, & opinions. In no way has Obama stuck it to the middle class since he's came in office 4yrs ago. Everything he's done was to help the middle & lower classes. Ya'll news to stop trying to mix biblical prophecy with reality.

I have to uncomfortably share this with the group:

"Put more simply, this theory asserts that conservatives are less likely than liberals to engage in cognitive reflection and effortful systematic reasoning. Consequently, while liberals evaluate information with the aim of developing useful public policies, fearful, mule-stubborn conservatives will dismiss discomforting scientific facts and spend their time just “standing athwart history yelling stop.”
http://reason.com/archives/2012/12/04/often-w...

"standing athwart history yelling stop."

That's brilliant.

Its discomforting because I'm as guilty of this as Carol et. al. are guilty of the above:

"The third theory investigated in this study is what Kahan calls the expressive rationality thesis. In this case, beliefs about issues like the riskiness of climate change or nuclear power constitute part of what it means for people to belong to specific groups. Shared beliefs form part of their identities. People assess new information so that their conclusions signal their trustworthiness and loyalty to social groups with which they identify and to which they wish to be connected. The upshot is that people go along in order to get along with members of the social groups that they believe will benefit them."

I'm guilty of finding a libertarian rationale against just about anything the right holds dear.

Go ahead, try me ;-)

It's MORE robbing via TAXATION the already UNISURED/beleagured lower wage working classes-and it's WRONG-WRONG WRONG WRONG--and they should be ASHAMED of themselves!!!!

CAPPING the flipping givverment programs-ESPECIALLY the WELFARE for fweeriding slackerTICS, would probably SAVE more in REDUCING costs than any amount of taxation in this rotten , OVER burden from freeriding ABUSES economy.

SHAME on them!!
