In reply to comment: Your analogy is offensive. (see in situ)

Not everyone who has been fooled in the past breaks the cycle.

One need look no further for an example of that than the posts today where people are getting sucked in again by Glenn Beck's apology/appeal to libertarians.

If the domestic abuse analogy to illustrate the cycle is not to your liking, perhaps this one will get the point across. It is a Peanuts clip where Charlie Brown lets Lucy sucker him in AGAIN into trying to kick the football that she is going to pull away.

As for your statement below suggesting that Jefferson was likening ALL libertarians to the woman in the story, you must've misread, because he did not say "ALL", he said "for SOME in the liberty movement"(bold emphasis mine).
