    Except the underlying rationale for liking or not liking a law remains exactly the same, i.e., moral absolutism. How do you not understand that?

    Morals are different, at least in detail, for each individual.
    "Sir, I exist!" cried a man to the Universe.
    "However," replied the Universe, "that fact has not created in me a sense of obligation."

    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.

    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.
