Bernie Sanders on Ending Bail.

I think this is something libertarians could support! And Bernie follows through to some extent at least on suggesting an alternative.

I fear that coming to the conclusion here on 'socially responsible' change being consistent with libertarian principles, might turn some of the hardnoses off, but it just has to be suggested.

This is in fact, a first step on having the public start to adopt the NAP as part of our future.

Ahhell? Oppo? therm? Andrew?

There's been enough looks now, so how about libertarians biting the bullet and admitting that socialist policy is consistent with libertarian policy sometimes.

Actually, most of the time. I'm not a socialist or a communist, I'm a socially responsible capitalist and that's what libertarians are too, with an exception that's probably due to his bad breeding.

Nobody is buying into your socialist BS, Dink.

But keep trying to get support.  I find it very amusing!    Smiley

Excellent! Libertarians at Reason are finding somethinig in common to Democratic Socialist, Bernie Sanders. Or vice versa like you suggest.

It makes no difference, the two ideologies are basically the same.

This is another indication that we're bringing about change to the LP and kicking some dogmatic asses down the road!

The only changes in the Libertarian Party will be leadership changes. 

There won't be changes in LP ideology or policy.

Bernie most likely has some ideas that he shares with Trump too.

Any coincidental seeming agreement between democratic socialists and libertarians are simply the result of it being true that not even socialists can be wrong about everything.

The fundamentals of the two philosophies of political economy, libertarian and socialist, are diametrically opposed and can't be reconciled.

Only on open borders, and only because socialists are dead-set on destroying the West so they can turn it socialist.

Libertarian policy isn't dead-set on destroying anything. It's just that sometimes, the moral option is very destructive.

Yes! And that is why boss that we don't advocate pure socialism. We libertarians advocate small amounts of the kind you know all about.

Even *libertarians can be right some of the time.

*pseudo-libertarians excepted.

** even Trump uses a toilet most of the time instead of shitting his pants.

I disagree.

I think you want "mixed" systems so you have someone to produce wealth for you to steal, and you know socialism always fails to produce wealth.
