SoCon accuses libertarians of supporting big governmentSubmitted by More_Liberty on Mon, 04/01/2013 - 15:01
Been going back and forth with another big government statist over at HotAir. He is a supposed "social Conservative" who claims that libertarians love the welfare state. It's a novel approach he tries to push on others.
"You do not like small government. You just do not want to pay for the big government the lifestyles you demand our nation underwrite upfront support and have no power to curtail through standard social mores.
The reason we cannot do so is because of the wealth transfers. So long as they exist, it means there is ONE and only ONE way to curtail degenerates from overwhelming the nation, and that is laws. It is not by choice that we have to use government to do this. It is as the last and only resort to defend OUR FREEDOM. FREEDOM which you obviously do not understand.
Snorting coke as an individual is fine by me, so long as when they blow their brains I am not paying for it.
Being a pot head is just fine for an individual by me, so long as when they are too lazy to get up off the sofa in their drug hazed mind they are not able to collect money taken from my pocket without my permission.
Sodomizing every joe in the neighborhood behind closed doors for individuals is just dandy by me. But do not demand that I recognize your degenerate lifestyle and when you get AIDS or some other debilitating resultant of your activities, I am not willing to pay for it.
You do not understand freedom, if you did, you would understand that how our society is set up right now is not freedom. All the things you demand we allow for freedom and liberty sake leaves out the one requirement for that. That the consequences of their free choices are born on their shoulders and theirs alone, and that if they want us to help them bear it, that they have to come begging for CHARITY instead of going to the government to use force to steal our labor."
