Philosophical consistency is the OCD of politics and small minds. Anybody can call themselves a Libertarian, many do. Most often those who have no idea what the words liberty and freedom mean. They are too busy raging on whatever is passing through their adrenals at the moment. I almost never call myself a libertarian, not since early adulthood. I know my politics are the result of a synthesis (with heavy but not overwhelming Libertarian influence).

But I truly enjoyed watching a lot of so called Libertarians turn a 180 when Bush43 called for Gulf War 2. Calls for slaughter, torture, turning all of Iraq into green glass on what was one of the most obvious put ons in World History. The price of exposing such hypocrisy was incredible, mostly still hidden and unpaid.
