Libertarians need to stand up to corporate greed

Reuters The Republican attack on President Obama's economic policy has changed subtly, but significantly, in the last three years. In 2009, he was allegedly a "socialist" and a "Marxist" who lusted for government control of the entire economy. But lately, that has given way to more nuanced charges of "crony capitalism" -- of giving special, friendly treatment to certain companies and industries, or allowing powerful corporations to essentially write the laws, themselves. Republicans shouted about Obama's green energy handouts and industry bailouts. Mitt Romney assailed him for picking winners and losers.

It's taken these assholes five years to figure out Obama wakes up with banksters surrounding his bed every morning stroking their hard-ons and nodding knowingly, and he asks them, "OK, which of you do I suck off first?"

Libertarians against greed?

Obama sold me out ( and all of America) in his first 60 days in office, to his Bankster and Wall Street buddies (contributors). I can't believe I fell for his D+ Martin Luther King speaking imitation, and rang doorbells, donated, and voted for him. Even Bush put some financial criminals in jail. Not Obama.

Here's what a black man with a PHD in constitutional law thinks of him :

".....we end up with a Republican, a Rockefeller Republican in blackface, with Barack Obama.... a black mascot of Wall Street oligarchs and a black puppet of corporate plutocrats.”

And the democrats are the best alternative because they are selfless and care more about the poor then themselves

The parties who get the most donations are the parties of corporate greed. Go figure ;)

The way I see it is that the "Libertarian party" somehow got re-purposed into simply being another arm of the GOP. Most of what they claim is different sounds almost exactly the same as the GOP, meaning somehow running a government with no taxes and no government intervention.
