Everyone calls their homeland their homeland, ya dingbat.

And Nazi's aren't the only people to ever refer to others as plutocrats, ya dingbat.

Sounds like your beliefs line up almost perfectly with Gary Johnson . I strongly urge you to reconsider the "wasted vote" philosophy. That is exactly what the two parties want you to believe , and exactly why we have this endless cycle of dildos in office. If everyone just stopped and realized it's not a waste to vote outside the two party structure , in fact it's the the only way NOT to waste your vote , this country would finally begin to have REAL choices. 

Any vote R or O is a vote for status quo.
Had I not seen what happened to Ross Perot I would be inclined to believe you.  Voting for a third party will make no difference.  It didn't make a difference then and it won't this year. It is a wasted vote with the status how it is.  No amount of third party votes is going to change when the corruption is as deep as it is.

Only because too many people continue to have this same defeatist attitude .

Your solution is simply to give up and go along with the corruption  ? Because you want to feel like you mattered ? That strikes me as ridiculous.
In 1996 I had the same attitude towards it as you do.  It is the reality of the two party system.  Only a huge partaking would make a difference.  Do you think there is a third party member that could get more votes than a D or R?

If you don't understand the topic, the safe bet is not to comment on it.

Heck isn't the Democratic party's slogan "We are smarter than you so we know what is best for you" ??

Nah, that's the Libertarian party's slogan.

What Libertarian is trying to make legislation because they know best?

Sounds like you're confused as to what a Libertarian is.

Trust me, I am not at all confused as to what a Libertarian is. I suspect I know more about Libertarianism than a good number of self-proclaimed Libertarians do.

Libertarians want to eliminate the Fed, because they are smarter than most of the world's economists and know what's best. Libertarians want to eliminate Social Security and entitlements, because they are smarter than the vast majority of Americans that favor them and know what's best. Libertarians want to eliminate all regulations on pretty much everything, from food and medications to the environment, to health care and more because they know what's best for us because they are smarter than us.




The whole philosophy of libertarianism is based on the belief that people should be left alone to make thier own decisions . In a libertarian socierty , everyone is free to decide what is best for themselves, regardless of intelligence , so long as those decisions don't aggress on anyone else.

Our beliefs don't presume to impose anything on you , so the fact that we are smarter than the rest of you ( which we are , by the way ) , is irrelevant  .  ;)






What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

I tend to vote for candidates that aren't plutocrats, which immediately disqualifies about 99.9% of the Republican Party.

And seeing as most Democrat National politicians are lawyers and/or independently wealthy, this jives how?

How can Democrats be engaging in class warfare against the rich and be plutocrats?

I suppose it depends on what your definition of freedom is. During the late 1800's when there was virtually no regulations on business, or anything for that matter, and nothing in place to protect workers or consumers from corporate greed and exploitation, I'd venture to guess that the common folk didn't feel too free. That's probably why they rioted and formed unions and forced the federal government into actively creating all of these regulations and safeguards that Libertarians want to do away with in the first place.

Simply being rich does not make one a plutocrat.

So what you are saying is that Wealthy Republicans are driven by their own self interest and greed, but wealthy Democrats are some kind of benevolent force for good?

You are free to go build your own little super-regulated utopia . You can even build walls around yourself , like you socialists are so fond of doing , to keep me from partaking in all your "wonderful" social engineering .

All I ask is that you kindly leave me the hell out of it.
