You see, libertarians are really bad people. So what if they oppose the government snooping through your computer, they are libertarians people! They think FDR was a jerk and that the welfare state is failing, when it so clearly is not. We must not join forces on this issue for our future is with the great Party to which we pledge our allegiance. Better to let Big Brother control every aspect of our thought than join forces to those who seek to derail the mission of the state.
Lenin had a name people like this guy. Useful idiot. That is, a democratic socialist who would fall in line until it was his or her time against the wall. Most of the time these people didn’t even know why they were being shot.
(From Reason Magazine)
“I speak of the progressive movement and the Democratic Party, of course.
For those whose feet still touch the ground, the path to NSA reform so clearly lies inside the Democrats’ big tent – and runs through its liberal wing. And because we are a liberal republic, whose central government is not leaving the landscape anytime soon (the libertarians’ fondest goal), change must also run through an elected Congress.”
Democrats? Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Your Cell Phone) took to the pages of USA Today to defend NSA surveillance as recently as yesterday. Sen. Harry Reid (D-Your Email In Box) called Edward Snowden a “traitor” for revealing the NSA’s excesses. And President Obama, who is, in fact, a Democrat, loves him some NSA surveillance.
