Your 'To Do' List to Save America

There are a lot of what I call "left-Libertarian", which means very socially liberal, and generally, but not "thoroughly", fiscally conservative. However, given the variety of libertarian out there (hell, Bill Maher calls himself a libertarian!), there is little doubt, IMHO, that not no two libertarians are the same. However, that said, I do not agree wholeheartedly with Coulter's take on Libertarianism.

What I want to know is why Mother Theresa never accepted medical technologies to many of those in her care, when it could have saved lives? Was it that she only accepted god's help? Not trying to go Bill Maher on you, but it is rather peculiar of a woman who cared for the sick and infirm.
Well, to be fair, Jesse has had plenty of help keeping many a black American marginalized.
There's wisdom in that there quote. The term "free from state meddling for life", would also be apt.
I never thought that legalizing marijuana equalled freedom. Instead, as this article should strongly suggest, is that when the state is in control of the who, when and where, and why, there is even more control of the individual and his right to put into his mouth what he or she has a natural right to. Of course, the economics of the war on drugs, and of "medical" cannabis proponents, would strongly disagree.

I would agree, that in spite of his politics, Stewart is funny and talented. What Conservatism would have if he were to come to his senses.

How dare you disparage Tim Conway!
Great face for t.v.
Christopher Hitchens, rather compelling, argued that Mother Theresa was an attention hound, when she would refuse "earthly means" to treat the otherwise treatable wards in sick houses, and when she would jet set around the world. To the Atheist Hitchens, this could only mean that, like any other fallible human being, hubris was strongly suggested. So, yeah, liberals have a hard time decrying evil, and, cynically enough, recognizing good.
Is the irony lost? A rapper, looking to make some cash in the WESTERN music industry, fights against the very culture that could enrich him? What a sack of potatoes.

You have had guilt and loathing drilled into your head for years, so no wonder your optics of the world seem, well, distorted. If you disdain the free market (as if there ever really has been anything of the truly consensual and contractual in these United States), the private sector, and the individual (over that of the faceless Collective), then, what will redress those perceived inequalities that the left is so quick to point out? More centralized control of the private sphere, until the private sphere is all but nonexistent? Btw, the latter is the very source of so many social and economic downturns.
