The #Libertarians & Free market idiots have been trying to tell us “State-Led Growth” doesn’t happen. 700 Million people have been lifted out of poverty, and China has become a super power with “State-Led Growth.” They must have blinked and missed it. #Socialism
It's not hate but indifference toward people who aren't a member of their own group. The false libertarianism that we hear today comes from the foul ideas of #AynRand. True libertarianism comes from John Stuart Mill, Jeremy Bentham, and John Rawls, whose books I highly recommend. https://twitter.com/sylranch/status/1151849385485066240 …
John Stuart Mill should be required reading for all people who want to be #libertarians. Here's an online copy: https://www.utilitarianism.com/ol/one.html Here it is in an actual book, much easier to handle: https://www.amazon.com/Liberty-Dover-Thrift-Editions/dp/0486421309/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=on+liberty+mill&qid=1563465940&s=gateway&sr=8-1 … In Chapter One, Mill foresees and rips up today's "libertarians."
$70 billion wall? Rand Paul: "Meh" $1.9 trillion tax cut? Rand Paul: "Meh" $3.4 million trips to Mar-a-Lago? Rand Paul: "Meh" $775 per child concentration camps? Rand Paul: " Meh" Helping 9/11 victims and 1st responders? Rand Paul: "THINK ABOUT THE DEFICIT!"
Yes, all #libertarians.
I have a lot of friends that identify as #Libertarians but in are Two Party system are basically embarrassed #Republicans Instead of trying to fit a square peg in a round hole by being an unsuccessful third party, why don’t you take over the Republican Party? #UnpopularOpinion
Reminder that ad hominem arguments are weak and ugly no matter where they come from. #Libertarians (where I most closely identify politically) are more focussed on the merit of the logic than the character of the speaker. Let's be a beacon of forceful logic, and gracious debate.

It reduces bureaucracy and eliminates costs. It also incentives people to work. Currently, poor people lose benefits if they get a job. How the F does that make sense? #UBI solves that problem as well. It’s a directional solution. #Liberty @LPNational #Libertarians
"#Libertarians Friedman, Hayek, Mills and others pushed it as an alternative to the massive welfare state." but you know they will never take away the welfare state .... they will start making exceptions to add more $$$ to those who they deem needy.. no end to the theft by gov
Agree. But UBI is not a new idea. Thomas Paine supported UBI #Libertarians Friedman, Hayek, Mills and others pushed it as an alternative to the massive welfare state. Cheaper than our current welfare state and reduces gov’t bureaucracy. #Liberty
