Yes, many small-l's are independents. You and me both. I honestly don't know what the numbers are. Sometimes small-l libertarians will register GOP for awhile to vote in an important primary.
Luke 10:29-37 29 But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour? 30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. 33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, 34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. 36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? 37 And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.
Ha! :-)
Glad to explain and thanks for asking. for clarification. A small-l libertarian has a libertarian political philosophy but can belong to any political party. For example, there are many small-l libertarians who belong to the Republican Party. A large-L Libertarian is a libertarian who belongs to the Libertarian Party.
Freedom to do what you want with your body does not extend to harming someone else. In other words, your right to swing your fist ends where my nose begins.
So, are you saying that you think the government should ban or control the amount of junk food you can eat...? If not, why not...? It gives people heart attacks, which is harmful to their families. How about a nice microchip under your skin that sets off an alarm every time you buy a Big Mac...? The thing about authoritarians (both left and right authoritarians) is that they want to control everyone else's behavior but sure don't want anyone controlling theirs....
Attributing motives is a cognitive distortion. By definition it is irrational.
Did Jesus make a stupid sacrifice...?
Don't count on Coulter to be consistent.
What is tragic is that some conservatives consider her role model material. Shudder.
