One thing that you can always count on the libertarians whining is “the government is evil!” But the real reason they think the government is evil is because they don’t get their way. Let’s be honest, if the government did what libertarians claim they want, they’d be fine with the government. Okay, there probably wouldn’t be much government for them to be fine with, but you get my meaning.
Guess what? Getting your way all the time is not how a democracy works. People vote, or elect representatives to vote for them, and the majority wins. If you’re not in the majority, you lose. Welcome to reality!
And that’s why most libertarians aren’t all that hot on democracy. People don’t vote the way they want them to vote, therefore they don’t really want people to vote at all. It can’t be the stupid things that libertarians want or anything, it has to be that people are too dumb to know what’s good for them. So it’s stupid people, incompetent voters and the government is bad, that’s the only explanation for why the libertarians aren’t in power, right?
They can’t accept that the vast majority of people have no interest whatsoever in living under a libertarian system. Most people see right through the crazy beliefs that libertarians have. Most people realize that an unrestricted, unregulated free market would be a complete clusterfuck. Most people understand that the world doesn’t actually work the way libertarians seem to think that it should. But then again, most people are stupid, right libertarians? There’s always some excuse for why your ideology fails miserably in every single election. It’s some grand conspiracy. Not ridiculous ideas. No, never.
If libertarian thought was going to take the country by storm, it would have done so in the last 50 years. Instead, libertarian candidates for president have failed to even get 5% of the electorate. But it’s always this time! It’s always going to be amazing this election cycle! Just wait and see! And when it doesn’t happen, it’s never their fault, it’s stupid people, incompetent voters and bad government. Nothing is ever their fault. Ever. That kind of thinking is how children operate. I think that says something about most libertarians.
