I've reading for over a year now to prepare for social unrest. It's arrived.
BEP, this isn't me taking shots at libertarian philosophy. This is me living in tuscon and me being in giffords district. I actually have seen both giffords and her 2010 opponent jesse kelly in local meet n greets.
There are a lot of fringe types who talk libertarian rhetoric but are hardly philosophical purists. In the local repub (kelly) events, these were the maddest types. Combine that with youth and an arizona wild west attitude and you've got a bad formula.
Obviously, there are nutjobs of every stripe. But i have played poker with a number of young guys here who spout mangled libetarian stuff they get from glenn beck. They call themselves libertarian and are really socially obnoxious. (As in wanting to talk politics at a poker game).
Its pure speculation at this point and isn't really sound of me to engage in it. And i know that. The number of these types i see here have somewhat jaundiced me toward libertarian views.
