One Thing This Election Taught Me...
I am not a Libertarian.
I guess I had always defined Libertarianism with my own ideals. During this campaign, I "liked" the Libertarian Party's facebook page. Even sent them money at one point.
But, social media backfired for the Libertarian Party in my case. I saw what they really are, not what I wanted them to be. I saw the dippy shit their supporters wrote and posted and I watched as too many of them handed this election to Obama wrapped up in a bow.
Many are strongly anti-war and pro-choice.
Being anti-interventionist is a pre-9/11 mentality. According to some of their ridiculous memes, this party learned nothing on that day.
They also make the mistake that the Dems make and assume that a baby is part of a Mom's body and wuss out of taking a stand for it. They can call the Republicans all the playground names they want...but Republicans take a stand for what they believe in.
I am into Reagan strong, not Ron Paul girly man.
Libertarianism should be RIGHT of Republicanism because of the limited government, but somehow some Ron Paul people went to Obama instead of Romney!? What does that tell you? That even declared and voting Libertarians have no friggin' idea what they're talking about.
I am a Conservative Republican that has always wanted to say that she was a Libertarian because I do believe in a small, efficient, disciplined government that does not presume to decide what's best for its citizens. But, I also have a brain and believe there are shades of political gray and self-righteousness can't erase that.
So, now we get 4 more years and then Hillary in 2016.
Dear Libertarians...I hope you lose your second amendment rights. I don't have a gun, so I dont care and it will serve you right...
