Are libertarians losing because their movement is a bunch of lame, whining, weak, neckbearded cucks?

Today’s episode of the Freedom Report podcast is a speech given by Libertarian Party presidential candidate Austin Petersen at LibertyFest in NYC on October 10th, 2015.

Ladies and gentlemen, I’d like to talk to you today about one thing: Fighting for freedom.

Now, I know, as libertarians, we’re not used to fighting.

Not because we’re wimps.

Not because we’re neckbeards.

Not because we’re betas and cucks.

Not because we’re whatever the liberals at Salon or the white nationalists at The Right Stuff think we are.

No, because fighting is almost always irrational.

But my friends, we are up against irrational people.

And if you doubt that, you’ve only to look at the two major parties.

  • Curious as to everyone’s favorite charity? Personally, I prefer to support organizations that don’t ask the government for money (as I’m sure most on this site would agree). Any charities out there that you’ve researched that are worth the money?

  • I only just joined and in order to populate my friends list, I have sent friend requests to all my fellow Canadians in the group, The Canadians. I live in Abbotsford, BC and am particularly interested in contacting fellow British Columbians, maybe to get a discussion group started or organize social get togethers in the Vancouver Lower Mainland.

  • I find it odd that the Libertarian candidates never touch base on this issue in their campaigns. I want all anarchists, Libertarians, Anarcho-Capitalists, ect too answer.   The photo below shows the “Great Society” leader, and the other who was accused of being a Communist insurgent shaking hands over the Voting Rights Act of 1965. I guess this photograph sums-up on what version of history one will refuse to accept, and the other which will be accepted as the “norm.”
