    It’s literally “democracy = Democrats” and “a republic = republican” to them, simple as.

    The Democrats should rename themselves the “Freedom Liberty” party just to fuck with em. Take back some of their words.

      This is great, call it the Patriot Party or something and talk about how government waste has turned “Citizens On Patrol” into a bunch of lazy, freedom-suppressing, union members.

        Libertarians are more interested in simping for our corporate overlords and removing the age of consent.

          Nope that’s just the common Redditor’s prejudice against the party based on what they read on Reddit.

          I encourage you to read the actual party platform, which has none of what you described in it.

            Some of us have had actual conversations with “Libertarians” and found them to be pretty much in-line with the comment. Not all of us spent our lives on a website.

            It’s always deregulate-fuck-you-i-got-mine sociopaths. Libertarians are about as realistic and level-headed as Anarchists. It’s great on paper or for a small group but once millions of people are involved the bad actors show up and ruin it for everyone.

              Again, I refer you to the party platform. That is the only definitive thing that Libertarians as a party stand for.

              Your hearsay is irrelevant to that fact.

        Libertarians are just republicans who do drugs and are too embarrassed to call themselves republicans.
