Do not... DO NOT Defend Libertarians to me at Democratic Underground.

They are right-wing fanatics who pretend to be open-minded as some sort of con. Nothing more.
__________________________

Time to tell any Democrats you know to fuck off and die

Express your hatred, shame, and outright disgust with anyone you know who voted Democrat

However, for me, I'm choosing another rather unique path; a personal boycott, if you will. Starting early this morning, I am going to un-friend every single individual on Facebook who voted for Obama, or I even suspect may have Democrat leanings. I will do the same in person. All family and friends, even close family and friends, who I know to be Democrats are hereby dead to me. I vow never to speak to them again for the rest of my life, or have any communications with them. They are in short, the enemies of liberty. They deserve nothing less than hatred and utter contempt

I strongly urge all other libertarians to do the same. Are you married to someone who voted for Obama, have a girlfriend who voted 'O'. Divorce them. Break up with them without haste. Vow not to attend family functions, Thanksgiving dinner or Christmas for example, if there will be any family members in attendance who are Democrats.

Do you work for someone who voted for Obama? Quit your job. Co-workers who voted for Obama. Simply don't talk to them in the workplace, unless your boss instructs you too for work-related only purposes. Have clients who voted Democrat? Call them up this morning and tell them to take their business elsewhere's.

Have a neighbor who votes for Obama? You could take a crap on their lawn. Then again, probably not a good idea since it would be technically illegal to do this. But you could have your dog take care of business. Not your fault if he just happens to choose that particular spot.

And start your boycott of your Democrat friends and family today. Like this morning. First thing you can do, very easy, is to un-friend all Democrats from your Facebook account.

49. Sure is, because people are not binary objects, to be pigeon-holed for convenient hating of them.

Political opinions can be all over the map.

Politics is at least two dimensional (fiscal liberal/conservative & social liberal/conservative), but at the very least those dimensions are degrees of liberalism and conservatism, shades of gray, multiple scales of tones. There are other dimensions too, like authoritarianism, statist, corporatism, religiosity vs. secularism, etc.

You can put an idea (if it is tightly defined) on a point on a map like that, but not people.

People hold multiple ideas, and shades of beliefs, and thank goodness for that. They are not stamped out by cookie-cutters. They can't be pigeonholed by thinking people who accept and honor the diversity of human experience and thought.

For example, people can be both pro single-payer health insurance and anti-government subsidies to oil companies. But those two positions are antagonistic on the scale of big government versus small government.

So forget about pigeonholing people on a dimension or a two-dimensional map, unless the purpose is to set up straw men and knock them down or set up easy targets for hating at.

94. But no one is a progressive who believes in right wing economic policies,

as all libertarians do.

People can't be pigeon-holed, but policies can be defined. And the economic policies of every form of "libertarianism" do NOT add up to any definition of progressivism.

106. It is a mistake to think that people are all one thing and nothing of another.

Get rid of binary thinking. It is useless.

The universe is not painted in black and white with no gray and no color. Many times colored objects (like the images on your computer screen) are made of mixtures of colors and are not purely (say) a yellow, but might be a dappled mixture of red and green.

151. I don't think PEOPLE are all one thing and nothing of another.

But I know that LIBERTARIANISM has, at its central core, a right-wing economic philosophy that isn't compatible with progressivism.

A person might support LGBT and marijuana, but if that person also believes in right wing economic policies, that person isn't a progressive, any more than Ron Paul is a progressive.

126. I used to consider myself a Libertarian. And I did not support Rightist economic policy.


Rightist economic policy does not work. When theory and reality do not jibe, it is time to drop reality.

As I got older and more experienced, I came to realize that Rightist economic policy does not necessarily fit Libertarian theory anyway. I would say that I believe in natural rights. And there is nothing natural about our economy.

In nature nobody goes hungry if there is enough food. We have people go hungry because they lack money. Nothing natural there.

Technology has made it possible to make more stuff we need, and even want, in less hours by fewer people. In a natural economy we would all be working less. Instead, they keep telling us we are going to have to work longer.


The Right owns the Libertarian Party. But not Libertarian philosophy.

"left on economic and political issues, laissez-faire on personal issues"

Why identify that position as Libertarian when it's simply a straightforward Progressive model?

What's the purpose in blurring the terminology, except perhaps to identify with better-known Right-Libertarians?

99. Libertarians are never left on economic and political issues.

The essence of libertarianism is a right-wing economic policy. It just comes in two flavors: right wing economic policies combined with prochoice, pro-LGBT, etc, views (the "classic" version); and right wing economic policies combined with anti-abortion views (Paul Rand libertarianism)

Sure there is. Gandhi is a good example.

These people however are just anti-government in general. Mostly over the idea of taxes. You could see to it they pay nothing and they'd still claim their taxes are too high.

153. I have to quibble with that

Unless Gandhi self-identified as "Left-Libertarian," than this kind of post mortem relabeling is the same thing that Mormons do when they retro-baptize people into the fold. Likewise, Right-Libertarians love to reach back through history to scoop up all of the towering figures that they claim were actual Libertarians, Thomas Jefferson being among them.

I don't buy it. It smacks of desperation and deception, even if the intent is pure.

Gandhi was anti-authoritarian and anti-greed.

Call yourself whatever you want. When the Mahatma personally steps into line along with you, I'll believe it.

Short of that, you're assigning him a label that I don't believe he would accept.

The most you can say is that he espoused beliefs that are consistent with your conception of Left-Libertarianism, but that's very different from what you're proposing.

You would do yourself a favor by abandoning the "Libertarian" label entirely, because you're simply aligning yourself with assholes, and people are naturally going to wonder why.

I'd have thought that Stalin and Berlusconi would have been too busy.


Unless you're posting other people's projections about this historical figures, of course. But that would be disingenuous.


So the actual statement should not be "Gandhi was Left-Libertarian" but should in fact be "decades after his death, an informal online survey identifies certain, highly limited aspects of his character as consistent with the modern formulation of Left-Libertarianism."


It's foolish to cling to a term that's been wholly co-opted by by the hard, radical Right and pretend that the term actually retains its objective definition stripped of all connotation.

There are two versions of libertarian economics. The type that comes wrapped in prochoice, pro-LGBT, etc; and the type that comes wrapped in anti-abortion, anti-gay, etc.

But underneath the wrappings, it's all about money.

I don't believe the Left is already "libertarian" on those issues.


I was orginally Left on economic policy because (1) the morality of economics, and (2) Rightist economic policy fails miserably. Philosophically I became easier with that inconsistency when I realized that there is nothing natural about our economic system (I go into this further in another post upthread). So I don't think it is actually inconsistent.

157. There are libertarian/anarchist communists -

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anarchist_communism

Anarchist communism (also known as anarcho-communism and occasionally as free communism or libertarian communism) is a theory of anarchism which advocates the abolition of the state, capitalism and private property (while retaining respect for personal property), and in favor of common ownership of the means of production, direct democracy and a horizontal network of voluntary associations and workers' councils with production and consumption based on the guiding principle: "from each according to his ability, to each according to his need".

I sort of fall into that category and you'll find a handful of others on this site. Most belong to groups like Occupy or their local socialist or communist parties if anything. I'm actually registered as a democrat because I live in Texas where socialists rarely even make it onto the ballot.

You will not find us voting for folks like Gary Johnson - those are libertarians who believe in Ayn Rand philosophy - they are not into unions, direct democracy, or workers' councils in any way.

118. "legalize pot" (end the failed War on Drugs)

also:

*End Foreign Wars and reduce the size of our Military/Pentagon/War Industry to a size appropriate for the mission of Defending the US ONLY.

*Dismantle the Police State and the "Unitary Executive", and restore our Constitutional Balances & Protections

*Audit the FED, and establish some transparency and accountability to The People.

THOSE issues I find particularly attractive,and I wish the Democratic Party would incorporate them into the Party Platform.
I'm glad there is SOMEBODY out there talking about those issues and trying to inject them into the National Dialog and Awareness,
because you will NOT hear about them from either of the two dominant political parties.

That said,
the Libertarian Economic Platform is insane.
There ARE countries in the World that use this Libertarian model, like Somalia
They are NOT nice places to live.

Take the good.
Leave the rest.

4. This is not new.

 

Libertarians and new progressives are both charlatan groups.

Libertarians are racists who refuse to face their racism and hide behind supposedly free will policies. They are a bunch of phonies. They believe in laws and government intervention for their rightwing views only. To hell with everyone else. Ron Paul has been getting government handouts and living on government benefits for decades and the same with his son. Hypocrites.

New members of the progressive movement are Reagan democrats. They can't own up to the fact they helped Reagan destroy many progressive reforms and the country. Think Arianna Huffington who now behaves like she was the queen of the progressive movement and never knew Reagan.

Both groups are big mouth charlatans pretending to be something they aren't.

80. The Libertarian vote for President in FL pretty much matches Obama's margin.

Without them, Obama would be winning by less than 10,000 votes, well within the margins for an automatic recount.

140. I agree

classical political science terms and actual modern day usage of those terms are not generally heavily connected. While I think many DUers think they are classical libertarian when it comes to personal liberty... generally they aren't. Getting rid of the fairness Doctrine and citizen united were getting rid of restrictions on free speech yet are vastly unpopular at the DU. In general without a frame work in which to secure civil liberties, they become meaningless. Anarchy does not make you freer as slight unbalances in the system tend to drown out your personal freedom. Thus considering yourself slightly authoritarian isn't in my view a bad thing. If your voting for Prop 37, you aren't a libertarian.

I know people that think they are modern libertarians because they agree with Ron Paul on Pot and the War. But abortion, racism, food inspection, social security, medicare... needless to say they don't REALLY agree with him at all.

So many people who think they are classically libertarian, or modern libertarian are actually neither. The term is basically meaningless accept in purely academic terms. Reality is a sliding scale of political positions and most people change their views as situations change. Idiots, like Grover Northquist, have the same position no matter the situation.

I was surprised at the hatred from the libertarian pages that one of my Facebook friends 'liked'. I expected full-blown conservatives to be disappointed, but I was surprised that the libertarians were so pissed.

The moronic libertarian 'movement' isn't all that old; you would figure that they would expect to be gaining momentum or followers or whatever. They behave more like they actually expected to win.

23. "Me-me-me" is the guiding principle of Libertarianism

Period.
They believe that they're so wonderful that economic anarchy would automatically make them rise to the top and that only "government" is preventing this.
They believe that anyone who is economically unfortunate deserves it for somehow violating the commandments of the great and all-powerful god Market Forces.
A traditional conservative or a religious right type will donate to disaster relief efforts for Hurricane Sandy. A Libertarian will sniff and say that the victims shouldn't live so close to the ocean.
Note that the only government functions they like are the military, the police, and the courts, the most coercive parts of society and ones that are frequently turned against the starving masses in the Third World.
A lot of the nastiness of today's Republican is due to infiltration by Libertarian ideas. There are a lot of Libertarians in Oregon, and every one I met was a self-important adult version of a materialistic suburban brat. There are a couple of hardcore Libertarians in the Japanese-English translation community. I have never met them and hope that I never do, because their online arrogance and unpleasantness knows no bounds.
Don't be fooled by their stances on drugs, sex, or war, especially the last one. They would happily call out the military against their own people to suppress any hints of economic populism. But THEy don't want to fight, and like all brats, they want to do what they want to do no matter what, whether it's in the realm of economics or personal behavior.
They are NOT our allies.

But, now I see! I see the light! It's so clear to me! IT'S ALL TRUE! THE MAN WAS A GENIUS!

Some background:

"In Freudian psychology, the anal stage is said to follow the oral stage of infant or early-childhood development. This is a time when an infant's attention moves from oral stimulation to anal stimulation (usually the bowels but occasionally the bladder), usually synchronous with learning to control his or her excretory functions, a time of toilet training. Freud theorized that children who experience conflicts during this period of time may develop "anal" personality traits, namely those associated with a child's efforts at excretory control: orderliness, stubbornness, a compulsion for control."

70. Just like Socialists, Anarchists, Liberals & Conservatives, so Libertarians are widely misunderstood

Many people think Socialists are all Communists or worse. Many people label anybody left of Michelle Bachmann a "socialist". Those people make a big mistake.

Many people think Anarchists are all violent extremists or worse. Many people label anybody who wants less corporatism and less oligarchies a Radical Anarchist. Those people make a big mistake.

Many people think that "Liberal" is terrible insult that equates them with freeloaders and welfare cheats. They think they can use it to tar and feather anybody who thinks that government has any role helping someone in need of assistance. Those people make a big mistake.

Many people think that "Conservative" is a terrible insult that equates them with fascists and authoritarian thugs. They think they can use it to tar and feather anybody who thinks that government should spend less money. Those people make a big mistake.

Many people think that Libertarians are uniformly radical sybaritic dissolute hedonists who also want to dynamite government and turn everything over to small and large business, immediately, yesterday, if not sooner. They think that anyone pro-choice and anti-drug-war and anti-taxes is a "libertarian". Those people make a big mistake.

Setting up a cartoon caricature of any grouping based on a radical post by someone adopting a label is easy to do and so is drawing a moustache on it. But hatred and prejudice and bigotry against caricatures doesn't advance debate and understanding.

But I did it without any sort of ceremony or announcement. Just decided I'd had enough of the hate. Not one of those people has made any effort to get back in touch with me and I'm fine with that.

(I also decided I'd had just about enough of Facebook, after they kept changing it, but that's another issue entirely).

104. And I have not met one who wasn't enraged at paying taxes that would go to those he didn't know.

Libertarians of the Starve the Beast mentality want government to shrink 'small enough to drown it in the bathtub,' despise. even if they won't admit it, unions and public workers of all kinds. Whrere I live they vote against public school funding, fire departments, public works, parks and police. They got theirs, and to hell with anyone who needs public help and also, they don't want them living in 'their neighborhood.' Their only answer for those in need is charity or the church, so long as they don't have to pay taxes to the whining sick and poor. Those entities can't handle it all, and they know it, but they are not going to be affected. They're aggressive in person, just like the Paulbots and Teabaggers. Correction, they are Paulbots and Teabaggers when they vote.

112. There is, sadly, a lot of that "I've got mine" thinking here @ DU

I've seen any number of threads that have stated exactly that:

"I paid off my mortgage, so why should anyone else get a break?"

"I can pay to support my kids, so why should anyone else get food stamps?"

"I paid off my student loans, so why should anyone else get a break?"

"I paid off my credit card bills, so why should anyone else get a break?"

That attitude is pointedly anti-progressive and serves only to injure the most vulnerable. Sure, there are people who fuck up by their own carelessness, but the broad-brush "I did it and to hell with everyone else" mindset makes me want to vomit.

115. It's discouraging. But even if their candidates don't get elected, they are destroying civil society

With cleverly worded measures and propaganda that prey on those who are on the edge financially. Some days, I've felt that this is Libertarian Undeground, and have talked to people about leaving the site.

Because the same people that I see bashing Democratic ideas as old hat, have bought the shiny Libertarian mentality, that makes one pure as the driven snow ideologically, and look down on the complexities of governance. Even though those old hat ideas that gave them an education, a job, and so many things that they assume fell out of the ether and to which they are entitled.

And I found the link to the post that was put on the OP's page, copied from Eric Dondero's shout out on his website:

http://www.libertarianrepublican.net/2012/11/the-end-of-liberty-in-america-only.html

Those who continue to spew the Democrats are not saying the right words, as if it is just up to some person in office to inspire the masses with hot rhetoric to educate all the people, are wrong and not being honest with themselves. They speak as if they had the media in their pockets when we don't, as the Obama campaign victory was not won in the media. It was in spit of the media by one on one work -- that means this must continue, or we will fail.

The expectation of a savior who is a firebrand to inspire, will not not come, as Obama could only do what he could to keep the office of POTUS. It took a marathon on his part, but much more on the part of those will going to go out day after day. Those who look for the strong voice to heat their blood will never find one good one, and will stay home as they did in 2010. I tell people this is not over by a long shot.

The POTUS and Senate and Democratic officials are merely holding back the push for feudalism. When you get right down to it, that is the end of all this brightly wrapped libertarian philosophy, now packaged in many forms, but started by the Koch brothers and akin to their former products, the Birchers and the Teahadists. They are just another Koch funded brand name on fascism and economic oppression. But they won't believe it, they think they found liberty and freedom. I've posted several articles and given many links in the past on this debate, but it's really become a religion for them.

Thanks for the reply there.

121. More from the source article, as this isn't just one poster on a Facebook page spouting this:

Boycott Business who accept Welfare payments

Thirdly, I believe we all need to express disgust with Obama and Democrats in public places. To some extent I already do this. Example:

When I'm at the Wal-mart or grocery story I typically pay with my debit card. On the pad it comes up, "EBT, Debit, Credit, Cash." I make it a point to say loudly to the check-out clerk, "EBT, what is that for?" She inevitably says, "it's government assistance." I respond, "Oh, you mean welfare? Great. I work for a living. I'm paying for my food with my own hard-earned dollars. And other people get their food for free." And I look around with disgust, making sure others in line have heard me.

I am going to step this up. I am going to do far more of this in my life. It's going to be my personal crusade. I hope other libertarians and conservatives will eventually join me.

What I plan to do this week, is to get yard signs made up, at my own expense, that read, "EBT is for Welfare Moochers." I will put the signs out on public property off of the right-of-way so it's entirely legal, in front of every convenience store or grocery store that has a sign out saying "EBT Accepted Here." I may even do some sign waving in front of these stores, holding up my "EBT is for Welfare Moochers," sign, and waving to passers-by.


http://www.libertarianrepublican.net/2012/11/the-end-of-liberty-in-america-only.html

I have not met one Libertarian who doesn't agree with this. It is all about the money. They suck.

88. Thank you. For some odd reason, one of my best friends claims to be a libertarian.

He voted for Bush both times, but midway through Bush's second term he totally disavowed him. Could hardly even remember his name. He stated calling himself a Libertarian. I give him shit about it all the time...he moved to a tiny Massachusetts town because they had low taxes, and no police department (they rely on Staties). Then started bitching about having to pay taxes for the schools (he's a DINK). Funny thing is, he is about as Libertarians as a frog. Very wealthy, son of privilege. He just doesn't want to have to pay any taxes. But he is smart enough to be embarrassed to call himself "Republican." I talked to him yesterday. His poor wife is practically comatose. She's a Bill O'Reilly lovin', Hannity worshipping Fox-watcher -- she is stunned, shocked and amazed. How could America have re-elected Obama?

I'm lovin' it.

89. This is misguided and prejudiced

I'm not going to judge all Libertarians, all Republicans, or all Democrats as one and the same. This guy is predictably ill-informed and bitter, but I have a friend who is Libertarian, who has actually served in office as a Libertarian, and he is unquestionably a great guy. He expresses consistent disdain for both major parties, wanting to end our perpetual foreign entanglements, wanting smaller government, and wanting less corruption. He believes both parties have been corrupted by lobbyists and corporate campaign donations, and he's probably right. He's also for legalizing marijuana. I may not agree with every opinion he has, but I agree with him on many issues, and his views aren't antithetical to mine. Don't lump all Libertarians in with this guy unless you're willing to believe you can be lumped with every person who ever self-identified as a Democrat.

91. I suspect ...

this person will have a very lonely existence. And I wonder if he/she understands that limiting oneself to communicating with only those that agree with you, leaves you in a bubble that skews reality.

Further, I suspect this person is an 8 year old (chronologically, or emotionally), unable to accept rejection.

Finally, I suspect this person has no idea what Libertarianism is about ... No Libertarian would advocate:

You could take a crap on their lawn. Then again, probably not a good idea since it would be technically illegal to do this. But you could have your dog take care of business. Not your fault if he just happens to choose that particular spot.


A Libertarian would recognize that one is responsible for what one's dog does.

The guy above sounds like a Tea Partier who somehow drifted Libertarian ... probably because (this was the main thing I wanted to say about Libertarians anyway) they, and some of the militia types, etc. have totally confused freedom with anarchy. They don't want any govt., or only a tiny bit, plus think that anyone anytime anywhere telling them what to do (even if it's a commonly-accepted thing that works for society and/or the greater good) is an intrusion on their freedom. I think they're nuts, personally.

111. During the W. years there was a HUGE influx of Repubs into Libertarianism...

Mostly because Bush had eroded the party brand to the point where most sane people were ashamed to admit being repubs in public, and because they thought calling themselves "Libertarian" made them look edgy, hip, well-nuanced and politically astute...Not that these people ever changed their Repub views; they just pick out one part of the libertarian platform (i.e., no taxes, or no business regulation, cannabis, gold standard) to parrot endlessly...

And FWIW, there is NO such thing as a "Libertarian Republican"...That's some little fantasy bullshit dreamed up by the Alex Jones crowd, or Ron Paul acolytes (which is who I'd bet dollars to yen who the blogger voted for as a write-in) with zero substance, ala the TeaParty...You can NOT be all "100% libertarian" on financial issues while sounding like the KKK on social equality issues and still call yourself "libertarian"...There's an ugly subtext of this group where "unfettered rights and freedom for all" really means "just unfettered rights and freedom for me and my socio-economic demographic"

The libertarians I've known over the years would never have let themselves get associated with this bunch, but I guess the party was so happy just to get more people in its tent that it was too late to prevent being co-opted....

. “What else do we need to know about the political establishment than that it refuses to discuss the crimes that terrify Americans on grounds that doing so is racist? Why isn’t that true of complex embezzling, which is 100 percent white and Asian?”(clip)


"Immigrants can spread diseases for which we may have no immunity. There is also the question of crime and culture. Many immigrants come from countries with different legal structures and are not willing to behave in the way we expect American citizens to behave.”

There are exceptions, of course, but come on,...If you're one semester through your freshman year, If Ayn Rand is your intellectual superhero, Mom and Dad are supplying all your life requirements, and you have a lot of Road Warrior fantasies about you and that cute neighbor down the block driving around the wasteland in an AMX , well, I guessss a youthful fling with libertarianism is an understandable thing. But to carry it on into maturity...Yeeesh. In the cases I've run into, when the pressure's on, libertarians break to the right. Almost invariably.

132. Libertarians are nothing more than economic fascist

Ron Paul the darling of libertarians who complains of a partnership of corporations, and the government himself is infact an economic fascist, because what he advocates is helping big business through no or very little regulation of business. In other words more freedom for the wealthy, and less for everyone else. Former governor, and professional wrestler Jesse Ventura is an economic fascist I specifically remember him saying "I am always on the side of labor." And this year he said he would like to Ron Paul's vice president. The friends of labor do not hold hands with the enemies of labor.

Government role with business shouldn't be to partner up with private business. Government should serve as an honest broker between business, and labor, and the communities in which those businesses operate.
