My Facebook news feed is inundated with posts of cute kittens, twin tornadoes, and the full quota of "I'm such and such (fill in the blank), which one are you" but the ones that really make me facepalm are the conspiracy "facts" that the libertarian crowd likes to pass to each other. Whether its the police, the government, or the military, you can count on the usual Paulbots providing a daily dose of "9/11 was a hoax", "the police are arming for war on Americans" and even that the "CIA is actually behind the ISIS takeover in Iraq".
Some of those I've had as FB friends for a long time now succumb to the pressure and actually continue passing on these "newsflashes" as if its their duty. My list of "friends" has dwindled quickly lately as this trend seems to be growing at a much faster rate and my unfriend button is showing some wear.
Much of the reason for the libertarians pushing their agenda in this way is to sow the seeds of "anti-government" in an attempt to enlist aid for their platform of legalizing drugs, allowing prostitution and supporting abortion along with having a foreign policy akin to a turtle pulling itself into a shell and ignoring the atmosphere outside of it.
You might notice that those platform items I listed above make one think I'm talking about liberal democrats. You're not far from the truth.
The Libertarian party is basically filled with liberals that oppose big government and gun control. Regarding basically every other issue at the forefront today, the overwhelming majority of those obnoxiously professing to be libertarians are part and parcel of the liberal wing of the Democrat party.
Since last Tuesday's primary election in South Carolina, countless of these Paulbots have declared that they will not vote for Lindsey Graham in the general election in November but instead vote for the Democrat Brad Hutto. There are a few that are pushing the obscure Libertarian candidate what's-his-name but the real Libertarian, Lee Bright, was easily defeated by Graham in the primary.
So, in effect, the libertarians, as part of the overall liberal plan to infiltrate and divide the Republican Party, will be doing their best to elect a liberal Democrat to the US Senate. As their efforts haven't worked in the past, they are now attempting to do it from within.
While their efforts are nowhere near getting their own candidates elected, they are affecting elections in regards to true Conservative candidates bucking the establishment. Their attempts to get a Paulbot in office by misleading others into believing they are actually conservative do nothing more than assure that the wave of those like Trey Gowdy, Jeff Duncan, Tim Scott and Jim Demint is slowed to a trickle.
I'm honestly thinking that their efforts are geared toward driving anti-government sentiment in such a way that they get more support for their hope of an armed uprising so many of them speak of. The recent shooting in Las Vegas of two cops and a concealed-carry citizen that attempted to stop their rampage was by none other than a couple of the hard-core libertarians such as those you could find in Lee Bright's list of supporters. Many of them are adamant in their hatred of the police and when the liquor is flowing, they tend to make goofy videos slurringly chastising those that don't think like them.
Maybe one day they will get their uprising.
Perhaps we can call it the "Drunk Rebellion"
