Serious Business / Tea Party?
« on: June 26, 2012, 02:38:08 PM »
Hey all!

I came to the ideas of libertarianism/voluntarism very similar to the FTL host Mark.  I work with a bunch of neo-cons and they (over the years) got me into listening to Rush, Beck, and Hannity...  I've always agreed with them on economic issues but never could agree with their anti-gay, war-mongering, and pro-drugwar views.  I never knew there was anything else out there, I was stuck in the "left-right paradigm".  FTL along with Ron Paul, Judge Nap, Adam Kokesh, and Lew Rockwell helped me realize there is more out there and that I wasn't the only one with this distrust of the "right".  The way the GOP has treated Ron Paul is just disgusting, and after the Tampa convention I will be leaving the Republican party.  I'm very grateful of FTL for being an excellent voice of liberty and freedom.  I fully embrace the non-aggression principal and it let's me look at the world in a whole new light, but I must admit I'm kinda lonely, most sheeple just don't know or understand...  Anyways, to get to my point, I was wondering what people think of the tea party?  They call Ron Paul the "grandfather of the tea party".  I've never seen or met any "tea partier" that supported libertarianism, they all seem like gay bashing war mongerers to me.  I've even went to a couple local tea party meetings and I just can't stand it.  They talk about small government all the time but they seem so fake, and they don't seem to be deep thinkers.  Are they different in other places?  Where they co-opted by neo-cons?  It doesn't make any sense...
