Who else sees this connection?
Obama has been making all the Libertarians go insane with his reforms. Just to let you guys know where I lean, I am a crazy liberal European who loves public healthcare things of that sort. Well, recently I have been seeing the Libertarians quoting good old Thomas Jefferson at any chance they get, yelling "The Tree of Liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." They quote this when they go to yell at healthcare town halls, and even worse when they show up there open carrying. More and more it seems like they are getting violent and terrified that their country is being taken from them. The Libertarian party has about 500k registered voters, making them a respectable force and one of the biggest alternative parties. But do you know who else was a deep believer in Libertarianism, and especially that quote?
Timothy McVeigh. That quote from Jefferson was even the slogan on his T-shirt when he was found directly after the bombing which liked 168 people. He was a registered member of the republican party, but voted for the Libertarian candidate. He is quoted on saying that he hated taxes, was a massive supporter of guns, and engaged in the same talk of tyranny and taking the country back as Libertarians are now. I am not saying that everyone who is a Libertarian is going to become a home grown terrorist, but extremism is the easiest way to go when a group of people are scared. So the question is, is it possible that the Libertarians might turn into a terrorist/"revolutionary" group?
If death meant just leaving the stage long enough to change costume and come back as a new character...Would you slow down? Or speed up?
BAD place to post this kind of stuff.

yeah i know a few libertarians. they kinda wierd me out. one super conservative kid in my AP gov class is the biggest tool in the class. he only refers to obama as barack hussein, still claims that obama is not a citizen, and thinks joe wilson is awesome. we took a political ideaology survey to find out where we stood on the political spectrum. most people like me got moderate, some got moderate liberal or moderate conservative. fucktwad over here, who also happens to have red hair, got libertarian. he got the most points on the survey that the teacher had ever seen (least points means you are more liberal.)
but i doubt they would become a terrorist revolutionary group.

Haha I know a kid like that.
He also has red hair.
This leads me to believe that you must be a ginger to be ultra conservative.
