Mr. Fischer, as some of you may know, is the loon who thinks that all the Nazis were secretly gay, or something. He makes a common right-wing illogical accusation, that is, that an interest group pressuring a corporation to act a certain way through non-legal action is a violation of liberty. Nothing could be further from the truth. Campaigns like this are exactly what a free-market system is comprised of. If people have a problem with a corporation’s actions, they let that corporation know and ask them to change or else face a boycott. That’s the free market, folks. Liberty is only violated when legal action comes in to play.
The lesson is: When arguing with fascist idiots, be wary of their uses of terms like ‘censorship,’ and ‘liberty,’ and ‘rights.’ Those things always and only refer to intervention taken through legal, government action. Jackasses like Fischer want to frame it as if anyone trying to influence any business is violating liberty. He’s wrong, people like him are always wrong.

See, the thing is, his views on evolution are irrelevant to his efficacy as a President.

It’s not irrelevant. He doesn’t accept nor understand science. Stop apologising for a retard trapped in the body of a grown man.

This is well poisoning at its finest; goodreasonnews made a general attack on all of his potential good because he’s said something disagreeable, according to the mindset of goodreasonnews.

Oh look it’s your new favourite fallacy. That you do not understand.

What is the poison and what is the well?

Ron Paul doesn’t believe science. Ron Paul believes in the Christian god and the creation myth, and now, post enlightenment, he wants to be leader of the free world.

It’s logical fallacy, and is unfit to say, at least, if respect is designed to be garnered from the saying of it. Goodreasonnews, attack his policies, not his beliefs. Then we’ll talk.

His beliefs imbue his policies.

Exactly, beliefs inform actions. Sorry I couldn’t post all the reason’s Ron Paul is a fascist, corporatist piece of shit, but no one would read a post that long.

As far as I’m concerned, thinking evolution (and climate change, which Paul also denies) is a hoax is reason enough to think anyone’s unfit to be president. Even George Bush accepted the science behind climate change.

Ron “I don’t believe in evolution” Paul is unfit to lead this nation, represent Texas or have any influence over any level of government.

After picking out her dream bridal gown at a Somers Point bridal shop, Alix Genter received a call from the store’s manager, who said she wouldn’t work with Genter because she’s a lesbian.

The manager of the salon, in Somers Point, N.J., said she didn’t want to be associated with “illegal action.”

Apparently, Donna was stunned to learn, after reviewing your customer-information sheet, that you’re a lesbian. On the paperwork, you’d crossed out the word “groom” and written “partner” instead, and then inserted your fiancée’s name.

"She said she wouldn’t work with me because I’m gay. She also said that I came from a nice Jewish family, and that it was a shame I was gay. She said, ‘There’s right, and there’s wrong. And this is wrong.’ “

Above is the audio from Alix’s phone machine left by Donna The Bigot.
Pissed off about this? Tell the bigoted manager. Her name is Donna:

It’s a good thing I can’t pack a gun on the Senate floor.

Joe Walsh, Republican/Deadbeat dad, tries to tell President Obama to “quit lying.” His ‘wife’ has a similar message for him.

I’d move in a heart beat. 

Pay Pal founder and early Facebook investor Peter Thiel has given $1.25 million to an initiative to create floating libertarian countries in international waters, according to a profile of the billionaire in Details magazine.

Thiel has been a big backer of the Seasteading Institute, which seeks to build sovereign nations on oil rig-like platforms to occupy waters beyond the reach of law-of-the-sea treaties. The idea is for these countries to start from scratch—free from the laws, regulations, and moral codes of any existing place. Details says the experiment would be “a kind of floating petri dish for implementing policies that libertarians, stymied by indifference at the voting booths, have been unable to advance: no welfare, looser building codes, no minimum wage, and few restrictions on weapons.”

“There are quite a lot of people who think it’s not possible,” Thiel said at a Seasteading Institute Conference in 2009, according to Details. (His first donation was in 2008, for $500,000.) “That’s a good thing. We don’t need to really worry about those people very much, because since they don’t think it’s possible they won’t take us very seriously. And they will not actually try to stop us until it’s too late.”

Will the sale of under age prostitutes/pornography, rocket launchers and assault rifles, and uninspected, dangerous vehicles, appliances and other products be legal? Will homes need to meet any standards and if so, isn’t that regulation of the market? Will exploitation of underage, underpaid and overworked workers be legal?

Is libertarianism just isolationism? Is the idea of creating some libertarian utopia a betrayal? Are these people turning their backs on America?

Loving GoodReasonNews’ comments. Sounds like heaven: live in a house with no building codes, next to a power plant with no environmental regulations and next door to a guy who can own any assault rifle or explosives he likes; A place where police serve the highest bidder and your 15yr old can buy vodka, a pack of ciggies and a hooker with his allowance. What could go wrong?

Exactly, but bring up this point to any libertarian I guarantee you they’ll dismiss you and say you’re being silly. Know why? Because they don’t really believe what they say. If they did they’d advocate everything you say. They’re just Republicans, trying to give hostage-holding big businesses the advantages they want over the working man. That’s all a libertarian really is, or else they’re someone who’s been duped by charismatic libertarian’s who have freed them of the burden of siding with the uncool Evangelical style social conservative while still getting to cling to those ideals.

It’s hypocrisy and it’s a scam.

Are you for or against gay marriage?

Liberal: For, every consenting adult deserves the right

Conservative: Against, some bullshit about sky daddy’s ancient rules!

Libertarian: GOV’T SHOULDN’T BE INVOLVED IN MARRIAGE AT ALL, 10 BONUS POINTS FOR DODGING QUESTION WHILE ACTING SUPERIOR TO EVERYONE ELSE!

It’s an impractical response to a real world question. At least some of us are acknowledging that there are real human lives and not just ideals at stake here. It’s all well and good for you to sit there and bitch about gov’t and marriage, but you ain’t every gonna separate the two. At best, that’s a free-market radical’s idealist pipe dream. In reality, however, there are people trying to control your family and the question isn’t ‘how should we rebuild the entire political system and tax code as to free us from the responsibility of making this call,” it’s “what fucking side are you on?”

For a brief period of time, I leaned libertarian. It’s because of people like this that I’ve realized how much of an idiot I was being. Thanks, goodreasonnews!
