"05/27/2010 - 9:49am EDT | wildboy I'm not a libertarian by any measure, but I think that a candidate who wants to continue the criminalization of marijuana and other recreational drugs, prohibit abortion in almost all circumstances and keep Medicare in place (especially with its government-funded doctor payments) leaves something to be desired for a doctrinaire libertarian. And this is before he went all squishy on the Civil Rights Act."Wildboy speaks truth. Ron and Rand are not true Libertarians. Can you imagine Rand going to a rally in Kentucky and daring the Teabaggger crowd to give up their SS and Medicare to show their support.I recently read that 42% of births in the US were paid by Medicare. So there's that.
I have been reading "Reason" for years. The writers admit that libertarians cannot put forth a reasonable candidate for a major office for the same reason no one else can really put together a 3rd party candidate for a major office. Its almost impossible to get elected to office without espousing anything but lies. Who will get elected with a platform of "We have 60 Trillion In Un-Funded Liabilities!!" Now that's change you can believe in motherf....r.
