If you really believe what you write, you're not a libertarian

Threatening people who do not believe in the legitimacy of government is hardly libertarian. If it is, then the word 'libertarian' no longer has a meaning.

Libertarians believe in individual liberty. Governments, to the extent they protect individual liberty, are consistent with libertariianism, but when governments become the prime violators of liberty, then it is right and proper to oppose the government, even to work for its' destruction.
