    Morals are different, at least in detail, for each individual.
    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    That's besides the point.

    Libertarians have a consistent rationale for judging the legitimacy of laws. Liberals do not.

    What about this confuses you?

    Oh I'm not confused, I just know that's bull$#@!. Libertarians are no more or less consistent than liberals or conservatives. You know why? Because we are all human beings.
    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    What he's saying is libertarians tends to stand on principle more often than libs or cons.

    Just because the principals are different doesn't mean both other groups don't "stand" on them.
    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    You are changing the subject, but liberty, eqaulity, and tolerance are a few.
