When Libertarians drone about state's rights and how government shouldn't interfere with private decisions, what they're actually defending is, as Rand Paul (R-States Rights) explains, the right of states and residents of said state to treat fellow Americans as second-class citizens and/or property.

'Nuff said on that. I believe people are more important than property. Libertarians, apparently, believe property is more important than people. So it goes.

  1. For Libertarians, people at best come in third behind both property and corporations.

  2. Seems to me there are three people that Libertarians place above all, me, myself and I.

  3. What montag said...for a lot of those govment folks, no matter what party.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
