    Y'all are pretty quiet after your boys just voted to add $1.4 trillion to the deficit. Not a big deal or do you guys mostly hang out on Stormfront now?

    A social network that, if it wasn't originally intended to be a haven for white supremacists, very quickly became one. Austin likes it though, and thinks everyone is pretty cool there.

    It is definitely first and foremost for white supremacists angry over twitter "censoring" them. It's where you go when you need somewhere to post about the inherit criminality of blacks but you've been banned from twitter 37 times.

    The racists and nationalists in the party are trying to take over and there's a pretty big rift forming among the "libertarian" crowd on the internet. Libertarian twitter seems to be split in half. Most of Reason's articles will be pro-immigrant or anti-Trump while the commentators below call the writers proggys and libtards.

    Just out of frame is the Gadsden flag, a blue lives matter sicker, and something with the words "molon labe" on it.

    It is only an increase in the deficit if you don't change your spending. He is trying to change that part now too.

    lol. You can’t honestly believe that he’s at all fiscally responsible when he agreed to slash revenue without any promise of reduced spending in a situation with already record debt. Let it go. Rand Paul is a fraud. He’s a charlatan. Don’t be a sucker.

    That a budget can be balanced at a high revenue number or low revenue number or that he can achieve it? On the latter, no, I don't think people in Washington want to do what it takes to balance the budget with high or low taxes.

    its fiscally irresponsible to vote for a deficit explosion with no indication there'll be a cut in spending if thats your entire ideology

    or is his ideology just cut taxes and pay lip service to the debt, because this is over and over again how its prioritized

    Rand Paul is afraid. His actions show his grand speeches about fiscal responsibility to be nothing but lip service. He’s a fake ass bitch and that’s why his neighbor beat that ass

    I hate conservatism and hesitate to even describe myself as a libertarian, because what it means at-large with the public (thanks to the racists like this and general Republican cast-offs) is not at all how I view the philosophy. I like the general premise of "liberaltarianism" - the idea that true libertarian values are closer to the left than the right, regardless of how America's history of white supremacy has shaped the rhetoric today.

    I had never heard of the Niskanen Center until today but I'm definitely picking up what they're putting down.

    I had heard of the Niskanen Center because Will Wilkinson is a good Twitter follow, but I had never read any of their stuff before. Having now read both of those articles from them you posted, I'll probably be checking them out more often. Just really fantastic articles.

    Yeah left libertarianism was the original version before wacko billionaires corrupted it.

    I was scanning the Niskanen blog looking for a viewpoint I didn't really agree with and couldn't. Anything Radley Balko is associated with will pique my interest. Sadly most of the people I see self-identifying as libertarian, especially in Alabama, are just right-wingers who don't like the republican party.

    Left - If you want to abolish ICE, welcome to our side. It is just one of many federal programs we are willing to cut.
