    Apology to real Libertarians

    I wanted to apologize to the real Libertarians for a thread I made some time ago. I made it sort of as a joke. But it was made under a mis-understanding of Libertarians.

    It is widely and publicly stated even on Wikipedia that the Koch Brothers are Libertarians. But the Koch's have just hi-jacked the party and gave it a bad name.

    I am not sure I agree with all of the Libertarian stances. But I have found that the real libertarians are pretty respectable people. Such as Ron Paul for example, I mean really can a guy be any better? He has a sound mind and he is right on so many issues, I have always liked him. I find him to be very decent, and very kind. I think the kindness in him is something I admire the most. But I don't agree with all of his stances. But I find it very hard to find any fault in this particular man.

    But, I just wanted to say it out loud that I realize my error.

    I will still not agree with the Koch wh0res, but they are not Libertarians anyways. I do not agree with anyone who tries to buy our democracy. This includes Americans for Prosperity, and Open Society. Any organization that works to hi-jack our democracy, goes against everything that America stands for. I will also throw in that Citizens United must be repealed. We also need voter reforms, no powerful individual should be able to silence the voice of the people, or influence our policies, and regulations.

    That being said, the Libertarians are all right, in my book, maybe not all of them. I am understanding there are many different stances that different Libertarians take, and I don't know much about it. But all people are different. But Libertarians in General seem to be pretty sound of mind, and quite respectable.

    I do not have a party at all. I am not a dem or repub or an independent. But if I see a politician I like I wont care what their party is. So far, I am really impressed by, Tulsi Gabbard(D), Ron Paul(L), and Mike Lee(R). These guys are all Bosses in their own right. I am also liking Bernie Sanders(D) as well, even Rand Paul(R), and Ro Khanna(D). I had never heard of Mike Lee until today, but that man impressed me so much! I will link the vid of Mike Lee on the floor today, he was a total boss! Please do enjoy watching this video.

    LP's , like Ron Paul, ARE more respectable than their donkephant counterparts because they aren't bought and paid for, like their donkephant counterparts.
    I believe they need to better develop a slightly different policy at the state level than they have at the federal level because to real libertarians there should be massive differences in how those two different forms of government operate.

    Get real.

    You're a bloody socialist.

    You just pretend to be a democrat.

    Just AnotherPerson, I'd forgotten all about it.

    I'm still a libertarian, tenuously, but not a Libertarian.

    The Kochs support libertarian organizations like the Cato Institute to fight for less government regulation. As such they're trying to increase democracy and individual liberty, not destroy it.

    Depends, I suppose, on what exactly you mean by democracy.
