I used to think I was a libertarian. But it seemed to me every time a politician claimed to be a libertarian, what he really meant was "I want to get away with selling the public things that I know are bad"
There's a reason I'm an independent now. When I was young, I thought I was a republican, but eventually realized that was wrong. I thought I was a democrat, and later realized that was wrong. You just really can't sum up the political philosophies of 300 Million+ Americians with just 2 major parties. It's ridiculous.
The founders were right be wary of parties. These parties may have been founded with good intentions, but they always seem to inevitably get hijacked by the psychopaths.
