Jimmy Carter Was Horrible

Your assessment of Carter is so far off the mark. This is a guy who instituted price controls on energy. My parents still talk about waiting in line for gasoline in those days. How can anyone in favor of not allowing the market to set the price of goods be "more libertarian" than anyone? That single act is just about the antithesis of the libertarian philosophy.

Although Jimmy might be right that Barack should give back his Nobel Prize, that doesn't mean this guy is one iota libertarian. On the whole, he hated freedom and believed that a small elite group could make better decisions than millions of individuals acting in their own best interest. His actions showed this in addition to his rhetoric. So, I'm just going to have to disagree with you on your assessment, respectfully, and somewhat confusedly.
