    It is a philosophy that requires very little brain power and tact. I can see that.

    Individuals are not businesses. I don't really know how you would think that someone that is in favor of personal freedom coupled with personal responsibility would be "racist", but I guess I am not in a place where I can explain the philosophy any further. You appear to be entrenched in your position. I respect your position.
    Very little brain power? Interesting take. People that respect everyone else's rights are not very smart? I guess.

    Libertarianism isn't about personal responsibility. I don't know who gave you that notion, but it's not at all how it gets applied. That's sort of like how people say in theory communism and socialism are about true equality. When the rubber actually hits the road, communism never results in equality and libertarianism never results in personal responsibility. It ends up in its logical conclusion, which is someone being able to shift off responsibility to people weaker than them.

    It isn't? Interesting. That's the way I've always lived. I guess I was wrong to vote for the candidates that lied to me by espousing those traits.
    Personal freedom coupled with personal responsibility.

    Politicians who espouse those values do often tend to be the biggest liars. They expect their voters to support and uphold those values but never do themselves. They are the biggest “rules for thee but not for me” types.

    Hell their service in government is a freaking contradiction right off the bat. “I don’t think the government should do X, Y, or Z but make sure that paycheck doesn’t bounce!”.

    The American Libertarian "Non-Aggression Principle" is absolutely moronic.

    It’s a rather childish philosophy that tries to pretend like microeconomics exists while macroeconomics isn’t real.

    This is the exact type of behavior you would expect from slimy douchebags whose sole purpose is to kiss Trump's *** and spread around misinformation. I love the crying them and Alex Jones are doing because they have to be held accountable for their nonsense.

    You either didn't read the article you posted or you read it and didn't understand it. Which one?
