53. I dont even get into it, about the "l" word, because people here are willfully disingenuous

And obtuse when it comes to labels.

My party affiliation is Democrat, my philosophical orientation is left-libertarian. Which means that, yes, i think government should avoid involving itself in the bodies, bedrooms and bloodstreams of consenting adults, for the most part. Yes, pot should be legal, and abortion, and the terminally ill should have the right to choose a pain-free exit on their own terms.

But fucking TRY to have that conversation rationally and it's "go smoke a flat tax bowl with Milton Friedman and Ayn Rand, youuuuuuuu libertarian poopy-head!"

Derp.

Nah, I dont take it seriously, not for a long time. But obviously some people, with a bunch of time on their hands, apparently- still do.
