They are not any more or less "sheep" than the right. Over the past 3 years I have seen huge changes in they way my friends on the left discuss things, and a lot of them have come over to the libertarian idea.
Also, this idea that everyone who voted for Obama wants something is ridiculous. My mom is a democrat, she would never take assistance, she simply sees the republican party as the helping the super rich stay super rich. My older sister is a democrat who does not/would not take assistance, she just sees the Republican party as huge social government (ie anti marijuana anti gay rights).
Ruling out the left is dangerous. There are tons of use right here on the dailypaul who used to be on the left and it was not because we all wanted to plunder as you put it.
