Those Whacky Libertarians

Principles. Logic. Reason. That's just no way to get elected! Get with the program, guys!

First off, your Iraq Exit Strategy actually requires the voters to read, comprehend, and THINK for themselves for a moment. Bad bad move. Think sound bites. Think labels. Think fear mongering. The Libertarian Party needs a solid group of demagogues or they're just not gonna ever have success at the polls.

Fella's, the American populace is just not interested in thinking for themselves, and American leaders know better than to encourage it. Independent thought is dangerous... it leads to creativity, initiative, personal responsibility, and most frighteningly of all it reduces a person's dependency on political, social and religious leaders. The Republicrats and Democans have fully embraced the demagoguery necessary to maintain their monopoly of power. The far right and the far left have wisely chosen standard bearers, town criers and heralds like Rush Limbaugh, Al Franken, Ann Coulter and Michael Moore to rally the cause by providing simple, catchy, easily digested soundbites about "feminazi's" and "Lying liars". Reasoned discourse is irrelevant and obsolete... it doesn't sell papers, it doesn't increase ad revenues on syndicated media programs, and most of all it doesn't get the attention of the electorate.

LOL my Libertarian friends! An Iraq Exit Strategy that requires more time to absorb than a sitcom... ya'll got some lernin ta do!
