Re: stupid librarians
I was going to do that. I hate you Milkman Alicia.

Also, you forgot to say "never mind".

My favorite description of Libertarians came from the Cypherpunks list many moons ago: anarchists who want police protection from their slaves.

Why's that?

I'd say I probably align more with Libertarian ideals than Rep/Dem/lib/con--social liberal, fiscal conservative-ish, but I don't have particularly strong opinions on the fiscal side.

Being horribly general here becuase it goes far deeper than "fucking batshit"
Becuase I've never met a self described Libertarian who wasn't what I can only describe as "a nut", and honestly... reading through some of the LJ communities devoted to Libertarians and Libertarianism hasn't done a thing to change that impression.
It seems to me that Libertarians like the idea of miniscule government. That's fine. It also seems to me that the reason that Libertarians like the idea of miniscule government is becuase they like fully automatic weapons and want to have lots of them for the coming revolution where we will all have to rise up in arms against the tanks rolling through the streets.
Being a member of the foil-hat gang I'm sure it fun... a Buildeberger in every bush and all that... but it sure must be difficult reconciling that with day to day life in a modern world.
Unless I'm wrong and all the LJ Libs are actually Militia-men and I've missed something.

I actually have a couple of friends who claim to be libertarians who don't appear to be nuts. Well, no more than any of my other friends, anyway.

I think they may just be being contrary, though.

I've known some who fit into the libertarian category who aren't fucking batshit... but they're rare.
Also, I think that anyone who is hardline ANYTHING is probably a little crazy if not totally nuts.

In politics, unfortunately, the squeaky wheels tend to be the nutters

Hm, perhaps we can drown them in grease.

Fair enough--that's probably why I don't describe myself as a Libertarian, beyond agreeing with some of their ideals. :)

I used to be a libertarian for a couple of months back there. Man, those were the days, spelunking in the missile silos and inhaling vodka through the humidifier.
