Chris Reid Is Back!

...and blogging. Several challenges issued to me in his latest post, which I will not have time to respond to today. However, I will try and get back to Mr. Reid by tomorrow at the latest. Count on it, in fact.

Meanwhile, to get a taste of our ex-candidates arguements:

As for natives, it's government that created the misery that natives are in, they live under complete socialism on reserves. There is the real life example of left-wing, anti-freedom liberalism/socialism at work- government dependence and 3rd world living conditions. Luckily some native leaders are getting out of the game and embracing capitalism and it's having an amazing result.

Until tomorrow.

Update: Another Tory Candidate and his blog.

Can't see how you can argue that government didn't create this mess.

Even Chretien wanted to end this travesty back in the 70's.

Any discussion of native issues that starts off bandying the words "socialism" and "anti-freedom" has already gone off the rails.

Until the Right chases the racists, bigots and culture-less redneck "cultural chauvinists" out of the public forum, I'm not interested in anything it has to say about native issues. These people make it impossible to have frank discussions about it, because they end up making everyone angry.

BCL, far be it from me to tell you how to run your blog, but don't you think your time would be better spent focusing on someone other than this loony libertarian whose arguments we all know by heart?

having lived in a northern, very remote aboriginal community for four years, he is far more right than politically incorrect wrong

ti-guy, I wouldn't call anyone who wants to outlaw abortion and conduct ideological purges of the media a libertarian.

What Chris Reid is, IMO, is just another far-right nutbar who has no problem imposing his views on anyone and everyone but of course has made one hell of a big exception for his own particular deviation from the so-con straight and narrow, much the same as it's OK for Palin's daughter to fuck whoever she wants.

That's why I called him "loony libertarian." They're those types who believe their fascism is truly in the service of freedom.

Reality Bites said...

Ah, OK. I thought you meant libertarians in general are loony and he was typical.

Ti-Guy said...

Well, I actually do believe libertarians are kind of loony, but I can respect the ones that are at least coherent.

Ti-Guy said...

Reid seems to have cut off commenting on his blog. Gee, I hope it wasn't something I said.

We non-looney, coherent libertarians like to refer to these guys as "vulgar libertarians". They like to use the words of liberty and freedom to advocate for people and measures that do the opposite. Think American Enterprise Institute or CATO Institute type.

Or any Republican that thinks a $700 billion bail-out of the banks and investment houses is a good idea...

"vulgar libertarians"

I should use that instead. Maybe "Vulgartarians?"

I also use gLibertarians and Propertarians.

I'm not really that nice to youse guys, am I? ;)
