Not a fan of the "no true libertarian" fallacy. It's a pluralistic ideology. But there can be no doubt that thinking it's appropriate to use the government to direct private trade towards your own ends is not libertarian and should preclude Trump from using "we" here.
Thank you LIBERTARIANS. We are getting it all done, and FAST! VOTE TRUMP!!! https://twitter.com/randpaul/status/1315294923449602048
This is modern-day McCarthyism and it is grotesque. Particularly from someone like Cruz, who once upon a time understood that private companies should not be answerable to the moral judgment of government, particularly for legal actions. It's monarchical.
Sen. @tedcruz: "Twitter is actively blocking, right now this instant, stories from the New York Post...on Tuesday, the Judiciary Committee, the full committee, will be voting …

Thomas Jefferson was among the presidents who faced an intense smear campaign from papers unfriendly to him. He addressed this in his second inaugural address. Not by calling for regulation of the press, but by complimenting the ability of the citizenry to discern between...
This is a sentiment I really hate. The idea that having opinions renders people's capacity for objective thinking mute is a really nasty and pernicious one. Fully fleshed out, it means people can't govern themselves. Troubling if you believe in limited government.
Amy Coney Barrett says she owns a gun, but could fairly judge a case on gun rights https://cnn.it/3dl5LDQ
I'm unclear how exactly keeping with SCOTUS' interpretation of the Second Amendment (that it protects the individual's right to bear arms) is an "unsuccessful legal framework." It's literally what the highest court in the nation has said is the law.
In an exchange with Sen. Feinstein about the Heller case, Amy Coney Barrett indicated that her approach to considering gun cases would rely on historical interpretations of …

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
