Overheard on the UW campus regarding Libertarianism

UW is in Seattle. I was walking behind three folks who were dressed in high style business clothes and looked about college age. They were talking about a fourth person, and mentioned that he was a Libertarian. "What kind of Libertarian is he?" "He likes drugs a lot". Then laughter. Of course, silly people, we all know that true Libertarians are like these folks, who probably never exercised and sort of edgy liberty that wasn't condoned by the jocks in their high school or that frats and sororities at UW. Libertarianism is all about market liberty, not about freedom per se. And it's surely about making these fuckers richer while they screw the rest of the country.

Ha ha, drugs. Like that has anything to do with personal freedom.
