36. This is an excellent post

Nominated with pleasure. Thanks for all this information. I was aware of some of it, but not all. As some one deeply committed to the environmental and animal welfare movement, I have found no greater philosophical foe to either of these than the libertarian :-/.

While we tend to focus on the religious insanity of the current group of thugs ruling us, it is my firm conviction that that is merely a bait for the 10-20% of the religious right that is needed to win elections. The true philosophy that governs these Cheneys and Bushes is that disgusting, hard-core, self-centred libertarianism you described here.

"The virtue of selfishness" :puke:.
