I’ve shot across the bow in a nice manner, let’s see how she responds:
Subject: You’re libertarian?
I’ve been reading your stuff for some time now, and I have to say that you do not seem very consistent in your idea of what libertarianism is, even Randian libertarianism (I have also read Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead but do not color the world through that philosophy alone). Do you truly believe that it’s our government’s moral obligation to interfere with other nations because they have a system of government that we do not approve of?
As a side note on today’s inauguration post, I like to bash on liberals as much as the next person, but to claim that “despite what hate-America leftists say, the Civil War was about slavery” smacks of revisionism. Perhaps you could stand to read a little history before shooting from the hip:
PS- I’ve had a few readers ask that I delink you because of your support of the Iraq war, I was hoping we could debate the facts as they are and establish where we stand before I consider it
Email was triggered by this post, but if you read the archives I’m not off-base here in my assertion.
UPDATE: LG replies:
I am going to write more about the Civil War this weekend because so many people have picked on that statement.
And I’m not going to change my support for the Iraq war so people who oppose it will link to me.
Thanks for writing,
My response to the reply:
I didn’t ask you to change your support, I said let’s debate the facts.
I’m hoping we can have a full-on debate (and she’s free to continue viewing the Iraq war as she does), but if LG doesn’t want to debate facts with me, I guess we know where her credibility stands.
UPDATE UPDATE: A rare moment… I have pulled LG from my blogroll. I could dedicate a whole blog to dispelling her inaccuracies and ignorance of the fundamentals of liberty, but I get the feeling Tom Hanna might be on to something when he says “I think ?Ã„ÃºLibertarian Girl?Ã„Ã¹ may be comparable to ‘Hot Abercrombie Chick.’ just a matter of rooting through enough catalogs to see where the picture came from.”
ANOTHER UPDATE: Don’t miss this rebuttal to LG’s ravings: Little Socialist Girl.
