Libertarianism

Found this here:

Q. “How many Libertarians does it takes to a change a lightbulb?

A. None. If the lightbulb were really burned out, the market would have already changed it.

Nick will never speak to me again.

Oh, I've got a handful of those, and I think I've posted them at Nick's before.

How many libertarians does it take to screw in a light bulb?

Zero, the government shouldn't be in the light bulb business.

None. If he wants to sit in the dark, its his business.

None, the market will take care of it.

None, Let the market decide.

None, if it needed changing the market would do it.

None, they just sit in the dark and wait for the invisible hand to do if for them.

None. If the market wanted a working lightbulb, the lightbulb would work.

None. The self-reliant citizen will take it upon himself when he is in need of light.

Libertarians never change light bulbs, because someone might enter the room who wants to sit in the dark.

"I'll do it, for a dollar."

I'll sell you a light bulb.

As many libertarians as it takes trading freely to make, sell and install the lightbulb: potentially a nearly infinite number, and everyone becoming richer along the way!

Q: How do you know you are in a room with a Ron Paul Supporter?

A: He'll tell you.

And we talk about Obamatrons (Obamabots?) being cultlike...sheesh...

If one were to go simply by the number of yard signs and bumper stickers, Ron Paul would have easily won here in heavily Democratic Austin, Texas.
