WRONG...I've been a Libertarian since 1984 and I DO NOT care for Trump, never have, never will. I actually voted for Hillary as the lesser of two evils. Was for Johnson until the last few months before the election because he got very, very goofy. I honestly don't believe his heart was in it and he just didn't come across as a serious contender. I hope the LP will nominate someone in 2020 who will run a very strong, committed, serious Libertarian race.


I'm with you on that Jimmy. And now is not too late to start ruling out the impossible nonsense that is being advocated by pseudo-libertarians such as the Chief and my boss.

A black woman for our leader would be a great choice. It would stomp down on libertarian masochism that is being promoted by my boss, and at the same time it would drive out racism that our party is becoming known for promoting.

Let's get serious!

Libertarians think every individual should lead themselves... We aren't looking for a leader no matter their sex or color.

Hillary is the lesser of two evils?  Trump is at least engaging in tax cuts and deregulation.  Hillary would not have done that.  Trump is definitely the lesser of two evils.  Plus, he's funny.

This doesn't make sense, but then consider the source.  Skin color shouldn't made any difference.  Plus, having a black president doesn't get rid of racism.

In fact, having a black president has exacerbated the racism problem in the US.

But that's not what I advocated. I suggested that having a black leader would go a long way toward erasing the racist perceptions the libertarian party has earned. Likewise with a woman serving to erase the male superiority attitudes.

Speak to my boss again for proof of the latter. He's completely out to lunch on the issue and I have to be dragged along with him between his legs. What's a dink to do Ruby?

Nobody has yet explained why having one black parent and one white parent means all the offspring will be black...

Does it go on until the 6th generation?

What did the Afrikaners decide?

Seriously, if I can decide on my own account that I am a black lesbian, why not leave it up to the children?

From what I understand, Barry Obama self identified as white until he was picked to be president.

Edit: I'm not sure...

Who was in the Choom Gang?

Was it a black gang or a white gang or what?

Libertarians accept and value individuals based on their character and their ideas, and also on the basis of whether they are civilized or some variety of barbarian.

We don't sweat the small stuff like sex or skin color or ethnicity, which seems to be all that today's "progressives" are able to see, unless you want to eat in their public restaurants. Cheesy

Being of African descent was vital to getting Obama elected.  People thought that his ethnicity would heal racism, it did not.  And skin color is a ridiculous way to pick a president.  Obama was the result of left-wing media inspired affirmative action, and we suffered for it.

They did? You know people like that?

It's an incredibly foolish notion isn't it?

Like imagining that having a woman president would heal misogyny?
