He Said What?

Perry de Havilland skewers a misguided Democrat in this article at samizdata.net.  It seems that someone actually made the proposition that libertarians would be better off with the Democratic party.  It boggles the mind that he could make such a statement.  The Democrats stand for just about everything that disgusts a libertarian:

  • Redistribution of wealth.
  • Affirmative action.
  • Gun control (and no, this guy still gets it wrong there; it’s not about enforcing existing laws, it’s about repealing them).
  • Socialized medicine.
  • Multiculturalism.
  • Giving up national sovereignty to international bodies.

I could probably name more, but those are all deal breakers.

This guy just doesn’t get it.  Don’t get me wrong—there’s a lot that I hate about the Republican party.  But I consider it to at least provide a little raw material to work with, as opposed to the Democratic party, which would have to be razed to the ground and rebuilt from scratch before I’d even consider it.
