    Great. Libertarianism as defined by a CIA plant. Been telling you what it is for thirteen years, and you want the CIA's definition. Fine. May your chains rest lightly upon you, and may history forget we were "allies".

    We're seeing all kinds of "progress". We're getting left progressivism and "conservative progressivism". Progressive is what the P in GOP now stands for. We are progressing toward fascist tyranny so fast there's no longer any need to ask, are we there yet? The GOP means nothing. They're not counting our votes anyway; it's not even a secret any more. Stick a fork in this republic. We couldn't keep it. We traded it for shiny beads, trinkets and a chance to piss off Chuck Todd one last time.

    Incrementalism: Overreach, but have a stooge pushing back in a half-assed manner. The stooge then becomes a hero, and you can "elect" him into a position to grab another increment with less resistance. If at first you don't succeed, kill a few more people. You'll get those frogs boiled. I thought once we got within an inch and a half of full fascist tyranny, people might be willing to draw a line in the sand. I guess not. Team Red rah rah blah blah. I'm against nationalized health care. I want governors to take it over. Wheeee! Look how conservative I am!

    Just in Florida? The federal government is pure evil, doing pure evil all over the world. Of course rationing an effective treatment to sell more of an ineffective "vaccine" is beyond sleazy and psychopathic. State pushback is just what the doctor ordered. And until this moment, DeSantis has mostly been part of the problem. Other governors have been quietly doing the right thing, but the guy trying to turn his whole state's medical industrial complex into fascism is getting all the MSM attention. I wonder why?

    That's the beauty of problem - reaction - "solution", isn't it? "They don't need to take this over to save those lives. We were already saving those lives without government help. If we let them get away with this power grab, we will regret it from now on." "How can you be so cold-blooded as to even think of that right now?!? People are dying!!" I guess it just doesn't pay to keep a calm head in a crisis.

    Never mind that they can't get away with making the major party nominee He Who Must Not Be Named in the general election. We must vote for the name we hear most, because electability. Never mind the purpose of the primary is to carefully home in on the best your party has to offer. We have to go with the most talked-about before many states even vote because horse race and unity and picking winners and stuff.

    Ain't it funny how "unity" only ever goes in one direction for these assholes? For all their jabber about how "it's time to stop infighting and unite" and therefore libertarians should join them, how often have they ever joined us? Of all the various electoral contests at various times over the years, there must surely have been at least some few in which the Libertarian candidate was the superior choice even by their own standards. Yet how many of them ever gave their support to those candidates - instead of mewling about how Libertarians are unelectable and therefore the Republican candidate must be supported, no matter how lousy he or she may be (only to then pitch a fit if the supposedly insignificant, irrelevant, and impotent libertarians ended up "spoiling" the election)? Hell, most of the bastards who were the loudest when it came to shouting about the Constitution and whinging about "the left" couldn't even be bothered to support Ron Paul when he had an "(R)" after his name, let alone when he had an "(L)" there ...

    I disagree. It's in no way an appeal to us. It isn't just that even as he pretends to kiss our butts, he insults us early, often and deeply. But it's more pernicious than that. So, the fact that RINOs have done every bit of their share in moving us a long, long way away from the Constitution--more, really, because they're less likely to be resisted by the people who hired them--is just one of those shit happens in the real world things. Trying to actually do something about it, like listen to libertarians and nominate decent candidates, instead of nominating whomever CNN whines about the most as usual, is not important. What's important is blaming libertarians when CNN picks you a loser like McCain or Romney. Never mind that you fell for it and nominated the guaranteed loser, instead of listening to those "smug" people who know better and trying it their way for the first time since 1924 (when we had people were in office, people were free, and the U.S. economy was making the world wealthy).

    "Indians of the Red Reservation. Yes, we know you're starving. We are the ones who are starving you. Those who went off the reservation may therefore appeal to you, in light of the fact that you will die of starvation eventually. But if our cavalry ever finds them, they will die sooner. Therefore, it's important that you stay on the reservation and hope you die later, rather than sooner." "Voters of Team Red. You know this empire is crumbling. We are the ones tearing it down. But it's important that you keep nominating whomever CNN tells you constantly that they hate, or Team Blue might cause the empire to crumble faster. Therefore it's important that you not try it their way and see if He Who Must Not Be Named, if nominated, might win the election, because then the empire might not outlive you." Stay on the reservation, Republicans. That way, even if you win, you lose.

    "True" conservative candidates? LOL. File together with "real" Communism (you know, the kind that has "never been tried yet"). Conservatism is just the rearguard of progressivism. G.K. Chesterton identified this fact a century ago. Nothing has changed.

    It's not about convincing libertarians that the same stupidity that got us into this mess will get us out. It's about making people who aren't conservative, but self-identify as conservatives, afraid to "leave their lane" and do something in their own self-interest for a change. God forbid they stop depending on CNN to tell them who CNN hates the most, and act on their principles for a change. They might discover doing the same thing over and over, hoping for a different result, isn't as much fun as they thought it was Team players will throw the game time after time after time, if you've buffaloed them into thinking scoring real points will lose your Team the game.

    Since when is the "We got a badass over here" meme "gay"? It's been all over the interwebz for many moons and it's used by all sorts of folks. There are several samples in the various "bestest picture thread evarrr"-s.
  8. The reason I have no use for monarchies is it's complete pot luck what you get. If your generation gets a Victoria, you could be in worse shape (assuming her advisors aren't lying to her about what they're doing), but if you get an Ivan the Terrible you're screwed. I prefer a system that at least holds out hope for nonviolent revolution, whether people are generally smart enough to use it or not.

    And I'm pretty sure you meant neither Bismarck nor the kaiser.

    Chancellor von Bismarck
    President von Hindenburg

    You're right, I should have said the Kaiser, not Bismarck. :/ (My WWI history is rather rusty...I do remember Hitler suffered from mustard gas inhalation during that war and a bunch of other factoids) Yeah, monarchs have been somewhat fascist in certain occasions, but they always had incentive not to destroy their subjects' economy or their own respective societies as presidents and prime ministers or even legislators do. (such elected officials almost always leave office very wealthy and almost never face justice for their misdeeds) Generally speaking, the best to worst scale goes- voluntary association with government>hereditary monarchy>monarchy>classical republicanism>modern constitutionalism>democracy etc.

What has it to do with politics? Everything. Politicians piss us off, then try to misdirect our anger 'across the aisle' to people who are fundamentally exactly the same, but wear a different party label. The game is age old, but still works.

People are angry, but they are often in denial about it. They know they're angry, but they don't want to admit they're angry
