"You think that 50% of America is bigoted and the other 50% isn't?"
I said no such thing, which makes you the idiot, or rather, as you are well known on RJ, the Riddiot.
PS and BTW any true libertarian will tell you it's about liberty first, hence the name. The Repubs were the antithesis of that with their nasty social agenda.
Heh - your attempts to jump on the bandwagon is telling of your character - particularly given that there's only one guy who (publicly) calls me that and he's a curmudgeon who I admittedly pummelled him more than I should have given his gaps in knowledge in finance.
Any true libertarian will also tell you that neither party is ideal and while there are some that will throw away their votes with the Libertarian party, the Republican party at least had the potential to reduce the harm to economic liberty. As for social liberties? What would the Republicans really have done? Sure there are some retrograde views in the party, but those are becoming increasingly rare - and increasingly so in the future - with limited powers to even act on them. You said "The repub's bigotry was voted on and they lost because of that bigotry". Well you do realize what the vote margin was?
Really? The Republican party had the potential to reduce the harm to economic liberty? Can you please name a single Republican president who hasn't raised taxes nor heavily increased deficit spending (ultimately necessitating an increase in taxes)? Well? Or are Republicans just talk?
Increasingly rare retrograde views in the party? Really? So Romney, most Republican candidates, and their 2012 Platform all supported equal rights for gay people? Hmm?
And with limited powers to even act on them on those retrograde views? Well of course. BECAUSE DEMOCRATS ARE CHECKING REPUBLICANS' POWER. It's certainly not because Republicans are any less likely to want too impose their retrograde views if they could.
Face it: Republicans ARE NOT the party of rights or liberties.
