What disconnect is that? That government is far bigger and bloated than it should be? That's reality pal.

No, that is not the disconnect. Let me point out the relevant quote to you, since you seem to seem to have missed it:

The strongest tenant for most libertarians is the concept of pulling yourself up by your bootstraps.

Personally, I find that to be completely ridiculous and not based in reality...

I'd also add that I think that many libertarians have the same unrealistic basis for their philosophy that the socialists have. The system they believe in depends on individuals acting in the best interest of themselves and their community, but time and time again it's been shown that enough people will do neither, and completely screw it up for those who might.

See this is where I disagree, when I was growing up, I was taught that when I did something wrong it was my fault, when I did something right, I was commended for that. It's called having a little personal responsibility, when they say pull yourself up from the bootstraps, that's what they're talking about. Being fucking accountable for yourself and your actions. I'm sorry if that's such a foreign fucking concept for some of you to understand and grasp. It's a concept I think is also lost on Obama, since all he does is blame everyone else for everything and has yet to take responsibility for a single thing now well into his 2nd term.

You can't blame Bush forever, keeping in mind democrats repealed the Glass Stegal act that set us on the path to recession to begin with. also Democrats were in full control of both houses for the last 2 years of Bush's term and the first 2 of Obama's, and shockingly? Things continued to get worse rather than better.

You liberals can't have it both ways, if the entire recession is entirely Bush's fault, why is it now not Obama's problem? When does he get any of the blame? Serious question there.
