Earlier this morning I was perusing Professor Jacobson's usually-excellent Legal Insurrection blog and came across a photo post that seems to insinuate that libertarians are all just a bunch of hedonistic, pagan, atheistic wackos (based on some of the bumper stickers adorning the car).
So, I know that this is not the case and chimed in.
Here's what I said (edited for content):
What gives - I don't see a problem here and agree with most of the statements (80%) on the bumper stickers. Why not highlight the Founding Father quotes or pro-capitalism stickers? Why the less-than-subtle sleight that libertarians are all a bunch of atheistic wackos?
Further, I would rather align myself with a movement that truly stands for something (free markets, free will and personal responsibility as the bumper sticker states) than be associated with "republicans" that, in power, don't believe anything other than increasing the state at all levels while at the same time disingenuously selling "free market" ideas to the voting public.
I would vote for an honest-to-God prostitute that was forthright (and genuine) about decreasing the size and scope of government than what passes as "Republican" today.
