And a better question still: Do you base your position on some libertarian principle?
Limited government is a practical way to protect and preserve liberty, which makes seeking ways to limit government to that purpose principled libertarianism.

You take the low road out of answering the question on disenfranchizing people and that's fine with me sweet ass.

I've never expected you to stand for anything to do with libertarianism.

When this forum has become a complete joke and no libertarian principle is left to uphold, then I will have accomplished my goal.

Then we can start anew with a more sensible and actually possible ideology to promote. I'm nearly done.

I would limit the vote to people who support themselves.

Yeah I know but that's not realistic so why not move on.

The answer that can come closest to your preference is in creating a situation in which more people would be supporting themselves..

To me that calls for having a look at situations in countries that achieve that goal.

Maybe start by looking at Singapore which is one of the most capitalist countries in the world?

I think you're setting the bar too high for yourself, Don_G. 

You're not going make any libertarian principles dissappear.

The core libertarian belief that individuals have the right to do whatever they want with their person or possessions [self-ownership], as long as they do not infringe upon the same rights of others is well-established.

Libertarianism is here to stay, and this forum is instrumental in promoting these principles.

Your obsession with destroying libertarianism is a waste of time, IMO.

You claim to be the arbiter of reality?
Or maybe you read the future in chicken entrails from chickens the lizard has tortured to death...

Nonsense. A legitimate limited government has no grant of power to "do things" to anyone other than the few things under its granted powers, and those few things are legitimate.


Who grants it those powers?
