Any Libertarians Here?

I hope so.

I'm not trans-fat free and I'm thinking a worldwide Twinkie band might be next.


*just trying to find some reason in a flood of nonsense*


What do you think?

You could just continue your other thread rather than keep opening new ones.

I believe people should have a right to put what they want into their bodies; although I also think that there are a good many benefits to being healthy.

Freedom tethered to individual responsibility and civility.

I think it would be nice sometimes to be able to try and live a healthy life without being jumped on by Libertarians. You seem to be little more than a different side of the same coin when compared to the so-called baby boom ban generation.

No, but I used to date one. It was cool. We'd have all sorts of really good debates.

Is there a distinction between libertarian and hedonist?

I'm starting to wonder. Hopefully there is more to libertarian philosophy than transfats and unfiltered Camels.

Well sure there is, financeguy. There's also 'taxation is theft' for starters.

You're right, some beat the odds. And yes we are all going to die.

And I want to live free from paying for other people's habits. That's what I call freedom.

Smoke 8 packs a day in your own home for all I care.

Smoke it anywhere where I can smell it, and your liberty ends where it starts infringing on mine.

In all fairness, I have trouble with this line of thinking, as the reality is we all as citizens pay for a lot of things we may not agree with. The list is nearly endless. The potential for others to get their noses into anyone's life and habits are also nearly endless, when this line of thinking takes precedence.

That's my take on it, anyhow. I'm not a capital L libertarian by any stretch.

Not if that means using force to stop people from doing the stupid things to themselves.
