   The Libertarians are the ones who have a demand for the miracle of free markets- and yet they are here supporting a Republican health care bill that absolutely picks winners and losers.    

 

    They are more hypocritical ( or perhaps not too smart), when called on to support their stance - other than mumble about socialism.   http://talkingpointsmemo.com/news/graham-cassidy-co-sponsor-state-special-medicaid-carve-out

Expect either much teeth knashing, aka Denial or no comments.    

 

It’s probably true that some of the overlap between libertarians and alt-righters can be explained by their companionship as members of the political fringe. But it’s not purely accidental, either. Historically, prominent libertarian thinkers have made the decision to cultivate ties with the nationalist far right, and have viewed racial demagoguery both as an efficacious political tool and an intellectually defensible position. The libertarian-to-fascist pipeline may have been forged partially by coincidence, but it was also crafted and maintained.   https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/posteverything/wp/2017/09/19/libertarians-have-more-in-common-wi...

 

  I can only suggest that this association be considered when reading some of the Free Speech and other distraction misinformation re:   DACA,  Healthcare   when those bloggers are feeling cornered into outing their own base ideology that they want to remain hidden.  


Look at the history of "Libertarians" - they were anarchists, socialists. Marxists, Leninists - every kind of inaginable crackpot quack...

And now they are abjectly failing in their pretense of being respectable, honorable, patriotic Americans who have the Nation's long term best interests at heart...
