    He seems like a good guy, i'm not Libertarian though. i hope Rogan does a good interview though. i listened to this one this morning, and enjoyed it. I do hope real Libertarians get off their asses and support him getting on the state ballots and into the real debates.

    Hopefully that burnt out kook falls off his mountain bike and is unable to serve as a trash receptacle of votes this time around (and then that he makes a fully recovery after the election)

    2. Does so well in elections
    3. Won the Republican nomination in 2012

    Libertarians have some good ideas. They just live in a different world than I do. And they usually have jobs that they feel are impervious to the world around them. They're wrong, but by the time they figure that out everyone is in the shitter with them.

    How any libertarian could be for open borders is beyond me. The people they want to allow to pour in/invade us are overwhelmingly in favor of big government. There is nothing you could do to ensure policies antithetical to libertarianism happen than to keep our borders open. :facepalm:

    I voted for him in 2012, but I've never been 100% on board with his platform, and I think the libertarian party can only hurt the GOP this go around. It's best they stay marginal this time; the GOP already has a reform candidate as its presumptive nominee

    Everyone is a libertarian at heart, but anyone with a brain knows that most people are too stupid and/or irresponsible to actually live in a "libertarian" society. That's why one will never be president.

    Libertarianism is just a stop on the way to anarcho-capitalism; that's why it never takes hold. If one follows their logic that brought them to minarchistic philosophies through to conclusion, they end up realizing that government isn't necessary...at all. In fact, it becomes clear that government is the problem in the first place.

    That's the hardcore libertarian thought process though. They think labor should sway back and forth.

    I went to a Michelle caruso-Cabrera talk a few years ago and she advocated for open borders, and she's libertarian.

    Face was busted in person, fyi. Tits...fantastic.

    Um, OK. "Government" is the problem with the world.

    this is what you get without it

    It's such a ridiculous concept because

    1. Our welfare programs corrupt any chance of free movement of labor being functional

    2. We're the only country with open borders. Labor ("labor") only sways in.

    You may, if you're lucky, realize that the boys did set up a government.

    Because in their Ivory towers they feel they can simply persuade the peasant who makes $7.75/hour if he's lucky that he'll be better off turning down the $25,000 in government benefits his family qualifies for. And because there aren't too many uneducated immigrants who are going to take multi million dollar contracting bids away from their firms(such as Gary Johnson's). But they will work cheap, so they love the idea of it. Must be a coincidence that they all grew their businesses past the one-man stage before mass immigration destroyed the honest contractor in favor of the assholes who hire illegally and cut corners.
