I refuse to be responsible for protecting you from your own stupidity.

I agree. I'm all for people choosing what they want for themselves and being responsible for themselves.

Does this include people preparing for their own retirement, choosing their own health care (even if this means no health care), and eating whatever they want?

Quoting bozobean: I agree. I'm all for people choosing what they want for themselves and being responsible for themselves.

Absolutely! That's how I feel though. Others may not agree, and that's fine, but I'm not going to get into an argument over it. I just like the idea of people making their own choices for themselves.

A lot of people like it until they see what it actually entails.

I still like it even after I know what the libertarian ideology is.

I do too. Wouldn't want it any other way.

Dangerously close to, if not crossing the line into apathy. Living within a a society does not always give us this luxury.

So, are you fully supportive of the woman's right to choose to abort a pregnancy?

re: retirement; should we scrap ss and medicare for our elderly both of which our aging population relies upon to not only live but minimally to supplement their pensions/retirement.

re: healthcare, if a person is ill but choose not to obtain insurance, does the hospital have the right to choose not to treat that person if they can not first pay their bill? 

re: eating, should we remove the F from the FDA?

Libertarianism is an ideal that could never realistically be applied as an actual governing system. 

There's a reason why libertarians tend to be the ones who already have it made.
