The Political Ideology of The Libertarian Party According To Gary Johnson (And Why He’s Full of Shit) [Part 1] By Kevin Potts / Reality Check News http://occupywallst.org/forum/the-political-ideology-of-the-libertarian-party-ac/
[Updated Excerpt:] Gov. Gary Johnson Attempts To Rationalize His Darwinian/Libertarian Ideology of Selfishness, Austerity and Not Really Giving A Fuck About Helping Poor People Survive in America: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtCzqiA1sV4 [00:54-01:19] “Aren’t the majority of Americans classically liberal? –the notion that we’re all fiscally responsible? And socially tolerant? –and I don’t want to use the word “tolerant”…socially accepting...uhh I, I, I hate to use the word “tolerant” because that somehow implies that I don’t agree with your lifestyle. I really don’t care what you do with your life as long as it doesn’t adversely affect mine. (…)”
TRANSLATION: “I really don’t care what starving poor children do with their life, as long as it doesn’t adversely affect my income and bank account by imposing a tax that requires me to help them.” And HOW THE HELL did he think he could get away with spouting such a modern conservative stance in the name of classical liberalism??? And WHAT THE FUCK does fiscal responsibility and social acceptance have to do with 28 MILLION Poor & Unemployed Americans Who Can’t Find Jobs Because The 28 MILLION Jobs Do Not Exist? How are 28 MILLION Americans expected to be fiscally responsible with nothing??? Oh, right, he’s not even really concerned about that anyway. He believes the cure to capitalism and exploitation is MORE capitalism and MORE exploitation. What was I thinking.
According to Gov. Gary Johnson, capitalism isn’t even a problem and the super-rich elite should be able to rule the world and control/monopolize the mainstream media as they damn well please: “…from my viewpoint the Koch brothers really, um are all about free markets, all about free markets, they’re all about, uh, civil liberties, uh, they’re all about the right things.” [06:07-07:15:] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtCzqiA1sV4
