    Shit, why did I even waste time posting this thread since it seems to be a magnet for assholes. So much for individual freedom.

    Aw, I'm sorry.

    I did not mean to nag you.

    You know, I posted this thread just as a point of interest declaring that I was a member of the Libertarian Party. After Trump was elected I was completely disillusioned by my former party, the Republican Party. I am disgusted with Mr. Trump's behavior towards immigrants, women and the media. He is a self serving narcissistic jerk.

    The result. The usual forum dimwits flock to this thread to challenge my choice of becoming a Libertarian. All the usual partisan bullshit.

    I'm sorry to have bothered this forum with my OP.

    Regards,

    Bourne

    You have that completely ass backwards.

    Libertarianism is something with a defined view.

    It exists and you either are one or you are not.

    Same with liberal, conservative, socialist.....any of them.

    This is why we have to make up terms like social conservative and what not, for the people that do not fit into the traditional definition of a standard ideology.

    The way my professors explained it very simply is to think of ideologies as a box of crayons. You have your standard colors like blue, orange, green.....and those are constant and never change. But then you start mixing the colors and come up with stuff like amber or aqua which are based on a main color but have different elements added to it.

    So yes, all libertarians agree on everything or they are not actually a libertarian, they are some sort of hyphenated ideology.

    That would work wonderfully if you made e-verify mandatory for all workers in all areas, put some very mean teeth into the enforcement and sentencing for violations and instituted a prime contractor law.

    I find it hard to believe you were ever in the republican party.

    With your post history you haven't sided with them for as long as I've seen you here.

    Agree. I don't have anything against conservatives in general (expect when it comes to things like gay rights) but MM isn't conservative. He's a moron.

    Hopefully the Republican Party gets back on track - I think different kinds of political parties are important.

    Bourne -- among many other fine people -- never needed to be a bigot in order to support the GOP.
