Hey everyone! I am new, so I figure this is a good intro. Let me know what you think my picture should be. I am very much so a libertarian, but not a fan of the party. I vote for anyone who upholds liberty, be they a Democrat (Kucinich), a Republican (Pauls, Lee, Cruz, Amash, Massie), or a Libertarian (Gary Johnson).

I'll leave you to figure that one out Wink




Just kidding, I won't because that sounds creepy. It is a word my liberty friends and I have for when we are listening to a great speech about liberty and we get really excited. Hope I didn't offend anyone.

Ah, defending the liberty of the businesses exploiting their employees and the liberty of oppressing minorities and poor people.

I suppose this isn't the place to argue this, but you need to put more faith in the markets, my friend.

Right, so the top 10% of Americans can control 100% of the wealth as opposed to the 80% they control now.

Government and political structure has a lot more to do with the wealthy having so much money than the markets do. Absent bailouts, insider deals, subsidies, etc the people would have a lot more power. Adam Smith knew what he was talking about. Are you sure you're a libertarian?

Welcome above. I hope you'll find Illinois' politics better than your former residence, although the state isn't so much left-libertarian (unfortunately for the both of us) as it is corrupt, big government leftism.
