The Three Amigos of Race Baiting
 
Where is the outrage over a white middle school student having bones broken and being robbed on a school bus in a beating by three black students?

The answer of course is that there is no outrage because the victim was white and therefore the incident does not fit the narrative for race-baiters like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

And, because the victim could not have been Barack Obama's son, the President has been mum on the story as well!

A Republican Dream Act for Illegal Immigrant Children?

Analytical Negligence Shaping Catastrophic Blunder

Mike Scruggs

     On its surface, amnesty for the children of illegal immigrants would seem to be a commendable mercy, but its real nature would be unjust because it would be paid for at the expense of American workers, taxpayers, and their children. It would be unwise because it would risk losing control of immigration and impose unacceptable security risks at a time when a formidable enemy plans to destroy us by settlement, infiltration, and steady “Civilization Jihad.” 

     Republican House Speaker John Boehner and Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor want to be thought of as good guys by the media and prospective voters. Hence they are constructing a Republican Dream Act in the House, which would give amnesty to those who were brought to this county as children of illegal immigrants. After all, illegal entry into the United States was not their fault, and social security number fraud or identity theft were felonies they had to commit to get a job when they reached employment age. Life is complicated.

     Political correctness and powerful special interests seeking cheap labor and increased political influence by means not consistent with broad national interests have worked to suppress the substantial negative impact of illegal and excessive legal immigration on American workers, taxpayers, and their families. The national media and the leadership of both major political parties have been complicit in making immigration issues especially low information subjects for American voters. Hence debate over a crucial national economic and cultural issue usually consists of emotional anecdotes and one-line propaganda slogans rather than facts, statistics, and rational analysis of the consequences of immigration policy.

     Moreover, liberal-leaning wannabe-good-guys of both political parties rarely bother to consider issues beyond their emotional frame of reference. Failure to consider rational consequences of policy decisions, especially subsequent second and third level consequences, is almost a defining characteristic of modern liberalism. Hence the “Children's Amnesty” has a good chance of garnering enough emotionally oriented Republican votes to pass the House and a correspondingly good chance to destroy the country. Getting past its emotional appeal, a Republican Dream Act would be a tremendous, and in my opinion, unforgivable Republican mistake. It is in fact, just a wide-open back door to a major general amnesty for most of the 11.5 million illegal immigrants now here. Its major and largely unfixable flaws could completely wreck any possibility of immigration control. Meanwhile, as reality brushes aside poorly informed public relations strategies, the consequences of thoughtless and unjust immigration policy will become more and more damaging and visible.
  • Because the 1965 Immigration Act changed family reunification provisions from spouse and minor to children to include parents, siblings, and an endless chain of in-laws, the Heritage Foundation believes that 75 percent or 8.6 million of the estimated 11.5 million illegal immigrants now here would be covered within a few years. According to many immigration experts, repealing the 1965 Immigration Law family reunification provisions would be more important to controlling immigration than sealing border. Immigration control at the workplace is also far more effective than sealing the border.
  • The amnesty applications would be subject to massive EASY fraud.  If at least 25 percent of 1986 amnesties were given on the basis of fraudulent documents, how much more fraud would occur under an Obama Administration? If an under-35 age qualification is used, how many will lie abut their age? The Obama Administration's objective is to maximize numbers and minimize checking.
  • As a gross misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment, the U.S. has created a problem that few other countries tolerate. A baby born in the U.S. to illegal immigrant parents is automatically a citizen with generous medical benefits to child and mother. There are currently about 350,000 birthright babies per year. Sixty-five percent of American voters oppose this policy. But the proposed “Children's Amnesty” would effectively make all children of illegal immigrants, those born abroad as well as here, automatic on-request amnesties. This sets an extraordinarily dangerous precedent with incalculable future fiscal liabilities, helpless vulnerability to uncontrollable immigration, and unacceptable national security risks. It is a recipe for catastrophic fiscal, national security, and public safety breakdown.
  • See the damning letter by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)
Employee Union regarding fraud and national security risks:

  • As with the 1986 amnesty, no matter how tough the enforcement language of an immigration bill might be, with BHO in charge, no enforcement will be implemented or tolerated. Any promised enforcement measures would essentially be fraudulent public relations eyewash as long as BHO is allowed to reign without Constitutional or Congressional restrictions. Deliberate failure to enforce our immigration laws, particularly for political or financial gain, ought to be an impeachable offense.
  • Using the Heritage Foundation's estimated long-run amnesty cost of $6.3 Trilliion, a smaller 75 percent strength Dream Amnesty, not counting fraud and birthright issues, would still cost a whopping $4.7 Trillion.  Both amnesty and tolerating illegal immigration would be flagrant Congressional fiscal irresponsibility. No Republican who votes for such a Dream Amnesty should call themselves a fiscal conservative. Alexander the Great remarked that the people of Asia (Western Turkey) were slaves because they had not learned to pronounce the word, “No.”
  • Voting for such an amnesty would also destroy the Rule of Law, not only in immigration enforcement but more widely in society. No Republic or just society can long survive the loss of respect for duly constituted law.
  • Amnesty received at the expense of American workers and taxpayers is injustice. Do not their children suffer when jobs are lost and their wages are suppressed?  Where is the compassion for them? Again, Liberal-think does not concern itself with second and third level consequences. In Liberal Cloud-Cuckoo-Land, looking-good has precedence over justice and doing genuine good.
  • Passage of a Republican Dream Act would destroy the Republican Party, at least as a party with any conservative principles and credibility.
  • Any amnesty is bound to have grave national security and public safety consequences, when the powerful Muslim Brotherhood is waging a long-term Civilization Jihad against the United States, and its principal means include Muslim settlement, infiltration of government and cultural institutions, and gradual implementation of Islamic Law (Sharia).
     The Republican Party needs to start looking after the interests of ordinary American workers and taxpayers. Continued Republican Congressional surrender to big business special interests is already causing millions of conservative voters to stay at home. A Republican Dream Act will send them a clear signal that Republican concern about their lives and jobs is only a public relations sham.

In Defense of Our Blood

 http://dotcw.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/Unidentified-young-soldier-in-Confederate-infantry-uniform-possibly-drummer-boy.jpg 


Shortly after we formed The League in 1994, I was a guest on the Alan Colmes radio show on WABC in New York. Colmes, who at that time was the liberal half of the TV show "Hannity and Colmes," asked me if we Southerners would physically defend ourselves if we were denied our rights, including the right to self-government and self-protection. He was startled when I answer unequivocally "Yes!" "You mean," he asked, "you Southerners would take up arms against the US government if they threatened your rights?" He simply could not believe that someone in modern America could contemplate actually defending themselves and their rights by force!

You see, modern America expects us to behave like emasculated Metrosexuals (look it up!) We are conditioned to be perpetual children who need the Authorities to provide for and protect us. We are taught that we should go school, get a job, pay our taxes, consume things, and otherwise do as we are told. We say the Pledge, sing the Anthem, salute the flag, and pretend we believe the American Creed that all men are created equal. And to prove our loyalty to the regime, we offer up our sons and daughters to the military machine that is charged with enforcing the American Mandate of Democracy and Crony Capitalism on the rest of the world. We are permitted by polite society to complain but nothing more. Indeed, if there are those who insist on refusing to be "housebroken" by the regime, they are quickly branded by the usual epithets: racist, conspiracy theorist, domestic terrorist, anti-Semite, etc. And if we question any of these things, we risk being cast out from the status of "patriotic American."

The modern American regime seeks to destroy real manhood, especially among us Southerners, because it knows—both instinctively and historically—that it is only real men who will dare stand against tyranny. And if you know your history, you know that Southerners are "defenders of the blood." We are mostly Anglo-Celts (or we are descended from other European ethnicities that have a martial tradition), so it should not come as a surprise to those who know our history. 

What do I mean by "defenders of the blood?" I mean that we Southerners know who we are, where we come from, and what our people have accomplished for themselves and their posterity. We came from the Old World—Scotland, Ireland, Wales, the English Border Country, and the western and northern European continent—to the New and carved a rough civilization out of a howling wilderness. We were the scouts, frontiersmen, and Indian fighters who provided a buffer between the gentler settlers of the coastal areas of North America and the savage hinterland. We were the riflemen who defeated the British redcoats at Kings Mountain and Cowpens. We took up arms in 1861 to form our own Southern nation against great odds and held at bay for four years the military power of the industrial North and some 750,000 foreign mercenaries. We settled the West and provide the US military with its best fighters in its 20th and 21st century wars. 

After 400 years of Southern history, we find ourselves in a precarious position. Our kind, men cut from the old cloth, are told that we have no place in the modern world except to serve our alien masters. Do your duty to America and keep your mouth shut when that same America ridicules your culture and reduces you to second-class citizen status behind every minority and illegal alien. Keep your mouth shut even when you see that your children will have a bleak future as a hated minority in their own land. Keep your mouth shut and accept your fate, a preview of which may be the former Rhodesia and current South Africa.

But it is not natural for us Southerners to sit idle against threats. We are fighting men. We are not comfortable claiming victimhood and begging that some human right be created for us. Instead, we are bound up in a long community of blood, and that blood has often been shed in defense of itself. There are many old jokes about Southerners worshiping their ancestors. That's taking it a bit too far, but there is a kernel of truth.

We trace our ancestors and their deeds because that is who we are. That is our Identity. And we love and respect our people simply because they are our people, warts and all. We understand the 5th Commandment. We think such quaint things are worth fighting and dying for.

You cannot summon the courage to fight for something unless you love it and identify closely with it. We love and identify with our people—our kith and kin--and all they have bequeathed to us from the Old World to the New. We have a place that we claim as our own—the South, Dixie. Every people must have a homeland, and this is ours.

Throughout history, men have challenged each other for territory. Just because we live in what is called the "modern" world does not mean that the forces of history have been rendered inoperable. If you think so, you have not noticed that a Reconquista is taking place before our very eyes. Millions of Hispanics, Mestizos really, are reclaiming land for themselves and their progeny. How is this different, say, from any other aggressive migration in history? That's right—it isn't, except perhaps for the fact that it is being encouraged by the government that claims control over the invaded lands. Washington, DC, is bringing in a new, more compliant population from the Third World to overwhelm and replace us.

When you take stock of the current position of our people and what the future likely has in store for us if things continue as they are, we will be outnumbered, dispossessed, and have no land on which to live, work, worship, and raise our families. That is unacceptable. But it will become the reality unless we stand and do something to stop it.

For nearly twenty years The League of the South has advocated for the survival, well being, and independence of the Southern people. We want our separation from the US empire to be peaceful, if possible. But when the Southern people are rallied to our cause in sufficient numbers to effect a separation, then we will do whatever it takes to secure our independence and establish our own nation based on our own self interests.

As it now stands, our time is short and the consequences of failure are dire. In June 1868, the Rev. Robert Lewis Dabney addressed the young men of Davidson College. In this speech, "The Duty of the Hour," he cautioned: "A brave people may, for a time, be overpowered by brute force, and be neither dishonored nor destroyed. Its life is not in the outward organization of its institutions. It may be stripped of these and clothe itself in some diverse garb, in which it may resume its growth. But if the spirit of independence and honor be lost among the people, this is the death of the common weal: a death on which there waits no resurrection. Dread, then, this degradation of spirit as worse than defeat, than subjugation, than poverty, than hardship, than prison, than death."

Are we 21st century Southerners deserving of being called "a brave people?" If indeed we are that brave people of whom Dabney spoke, our duty of the hour is to revive that fighting spirit of independence and honor that moved our noble ancestors and to renew the age-old struggle of our people—our blood defending our native soil of Dixie.

Former CIA Operative: CIA Director John Brennan Is A “Bully Of Epic Dimensions”


Michael Scheuer, who headed the Central Intelligence Agency’s Osama bin Laden unit in the 1990s, told Fox News that CIA Director and Muslim convert John Brennan was a “bully of the first order.”

Scheuer’s charges came following the explosive report that the CIA has been involved in using polygraph tests in order to keep its operatives from speaking out on what took place on the night of September 11, 2012 when the diplomatic mission in Benghazi was attacked and four Americans lost their lives.

Scheuer said that the new allegations are all about “intimidation” and “persecution” and called the measures of using polygraph tests to ensure silence among the ranks of the CIA “unprecedented.”

Guess Who is Getting 400 Death Threats Per Minute?

 

Sometimes I am really ashamed to be part of the human race. How on earth can there be so many haters in this world that anyone could get 400 death threats in one minute? We aren’t talking about The Pope or Barack Obama here. We aren’t talking about Mohamed Morsi. We are talking about George Zimmerman’s family. I’m sure most of you had a pretty good idea already. We have seen the idiots posting on Facebook and Twitter. We have seen the chaos, riots and protests. But I must admit that I was shocked to learn the number.

Robert Zimmerman (George’s brother) broke his silence on Friday.

The Daily Mail reports:

George Zimmerman’s brother today revealed their family receive as many as 400 death threats a minute on social media sites and said he almost got beaten up by two Starbucks’ employees. 
Three weeks after his brother was acquitted of all charges relating to the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, Robert Zimmerman reveals for the first time the psychological impact it has had on the family – who live under constant fear and have to keep in touch 24/7. 
‘No one has really asked us to get into the psychological aspect of this,’ he said. ‘You don’t know if someone stops you in public and says, “excuse me sir”, you don’t know if you dropped your wallet or if someone recognizes you and wants to kill you. 
‘I think the whole ordeal has taught us to rely on one another. But it taxes everyone’s mind, knowing you have to stay in touch and in constant communication because of the threats.’

A Schizophrenic Elephant

Via Terry & WRSA

 

The Republican Party's biggest problem is mental illness. The big elephant party is suffering from a severe case of split personality disorder. It's an old problem that has only gotten worse over the years.

It can be hard to remember sometimes while swimming in the media bubble that depicts the Republican Party as some offshoot of the John Birch Society, the KKK and the Confederacy, that it's the exact opposite. All of the organizations mentioned got their start opposing the Republican Party. The Republican Party might have been considered radical before the Civil War, but by the time it was over, it had become the ultimate big government party. It was the oversized elephant tying together big government and big industry.

State Department to keep some embassies closed, as lawmakers say terror threat 'specific’ and ‘serious'

 

The State Department has announced that it will keep several embassies in the Middle East and Africa closed throughout the week “out of an abundance of caution” in the wake of terror threats that shut them down.

Posts in Abu Dhabi, Amman, Cairo, Riyadh, Dhahran, Jeddah, Doha, Dubai, Kuwait, Manama, Muscat, Sanaa, Tripoli, Antanarivo, Bujumbura, Djibouti, Khartoum, Kigali and Port Louis have been instructed to close for normal operations from Monday through Saturday, department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.

The State Department also said some of those embassies were already going to be closed in accordance with local customs marking the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

Those authorized to reopen Monday are in Dhaka, Algiers, Nouakchott, Kabul, Herat, Mazar el Sharif, Baghdad, Basrah and Erbil.

Perhaps anyone that follows Tom Woods knows that he is a fan of Jethro Tull, probably the biggest fan I have ever encountered (I only know two, so that probably isn’t saying much).   Regardless, I thought it might be fun for some of the other faculty to let the LC public know what we like, listen to, read, watch, etc.

I am a fan of Southern rock.  When I say that, people immediately think “Skynyrd!”  Skynyrd is a great band and the most well-known of a group of bands that dominated the South in the mid-70′s, but there are many other talented bands that don’t have the same name recognition but deserve attention.  The Marshall Tucker Band is one of those groups.  Formed in Spartanburg, SC, the MTB featured one of the best guitar players of the 70s, the late Toy Caldwell, a recognizable vocalist, Doug Gray, and a superb mix of jazz, rock, blues, country, and “jam band” fun that made them a draw on the live scene.  Their biggest hit was 1977′s “Heard It in a Love Song,” but “Can’t You See” from their 1973 debut album has been covered and recorded many times over.  Like Jethro Tull and Lynyrd Skynyrd, no one in the band is named “Marshall Tucker.”  A blind piano tuner had rented their studio space and the landlord had not changed the key, so they thought it sounded like a cool name for a band and it stuck.  When I lived in Columbia, South Carolina, my roommate and I understood that the real Marshall Tucker lived in town, so we looked him up and found his number, but never called.

Anyway, here (Above) is a song from their debut album just that just rocks, “Bound and Determined.”  If you like “jam bands,” you’ll love MTB.  I also included this for those that like a horn section in a band.  Doug Gray played flute, too.  Perhaps we need a battle of the flute songs between Tull and MTB?
Enjoy!

Simple pleasures: A young girl on a tire swing outside her home along Highway 70 in East Tennessee

Photographer Tamara Reynolds was born and bred in the Deep South, but has always been conflicted about coming from that part of the country so rich in painful contradictions.

In 2011, she set out on a journey of self-discovery to explore her ambivalent feelings toward Dixie, resulting in the Southern Route photo project.

A lifelong resident of Tennessee, Reynolds, 53, has spent the past two years exploring back roads and small towns throughout Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky and her own home state.

Reynolds sought to capture the everyday struggles, joy and pain of people who call South their home, while offering an unflinching look at vestiges of segregation, disenfranchisement and inequity.  

'In so doing, I found I could appreciate my home despite its failings,' Reynolds wrote in her artist statement.

Husband shoots 2 bank robbery suspects who kidnapped him, his wife

                        

Two bank robbery suspects were shot in Colorado County Thursday night by a man who said they kidnapped him and his wife, a bank employee.

According to the Colorado County Sheriff’s Office, the couple had been held at gunpoint by the suspects inside their home just north of Columbus. They were then forced to drive to the First National Bank of Eagle Lake in Columbus.

The suspects then forced the woman to take out an undisclosed amount of funds, investigators said.
“We believe they had knowledge that she was an employee of the bank for them to be at the residence and to take her back,” Sgt. Andrew Weido with the Columbus County Sheriff’s Office said.

He said the suspects then forced the husband to drive them in his truck south down Highway 71, and that's when the husband of the bank employee was able to gain access to a firearm inside the vehicle.

He fired at the suspects near County Road 101. Authorities then responded to a 911 call from the scene at 7:30 p.m. with the Columbus Police Department arriving first.

When they arrived, officers found the two suspects with gunshot wounds lying on the ground near a pickup that was parked in a ditch.

One of the wounded, 20-year-old Jordan Kutach, was airlifted to Memorial Hermann Hospital in critical condition. The other, 21-year-old Preston Kutach, was taken by EMS to the Columbus Community Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Both suspects lived in the community of Rock Island and neighbors said they were brothers.

In classic war, the victor is decided by whose Army occupies whose capital at the end of it.  In a "counter-insurgency" or "5th gen warfare" who wins is largely a matter of public opinion.

This a warning to all of our members, readers, supporters, and to the general liberty movement.
Please be extremely careful with email, and do not open any attachments from anyone who you don’t know, or from any suspicious email, such as tormail.  And even if it seems to be from someone you know, take the time to read the email address carefully, to see if it is from a Tormail account, or other anonymous email service.  It could be someone impersonating someone you know, to trick you into opening files with child-porn on them.

No one here at Oath Keepers uses tormail or any other anonymous email service, so if you see an email purporting to be from Oath Keepers, or from anyone in leadership at Oath Keepers, from such an email service, do not open it.

There have been a string of anonymous attacks on liberty activists, all attempting to trick people into opening email attachments containing child-porn.   We know of at least four such attempts within the past few weeks. 

The first was when someone emailed Luke Rudkowski, Founder of We Are Change and tried to trick him into opening attached jpeg files containing child porn.   Luke was able to use the “view” function of his email to see that the images were child porn and he did not open them.

A federal judge in Richmond, Va., has refused to dismiss from a lawsuit several FBI and Secret Service agents as well as local police officers who arrested a military veteran based on an opinion from a counselor who had never met him that he might be a danger.

The officers had confronted the veteran, Brandon Raub, after he expressed criticism of the U.S. government on a social networking page.

They arrested Raub and kept him in custody for an evaluation based on the long-distance opinion from Michael Campbell, a psychotherapist hired by the local county. But when the case came before a judge, his ruling found the concerns raised by the officers were “so devoid of any factual allegations that it could not be reasonably expected to give rise to a case or controversy.”

Raub then sued the officers for taking him into custody.

The latest ruling rejected a request by the officers to end the case.

Ruse of War: 6 Sneaky But Brilliant Strategies

Via Ninety Miles From Tyranny


War can be tricky—especially when done correctly. It's called Ruse of War, the act of clever tactic or deception on the battlefield. Think Trojan Horse, but less ridiculous. (“After a 10-year siege, the Greeks have given up and disappeared and look—they felt so bad they totally left us a present!”)
Here are six commanders who were dealt bad hands, but bluffed and ended up flush. Some of the more ancient accounts are, of course, tough to verify. But even if time has padded these stories into legends, it doesn’t make the tactical strategies any less astounding.

1. Persians Without Noses, a Threat Still Poses.

 

Around 500 years BC, Darius the Great was sweeping through Asia and Africa, conquering everything. He was spread thin, so revolts popped up everywhere. Darius and his armies were able to stamp them all down, except one: Babylon. Babylon was so well barricaded that Darius, though he sat outside with his armies for a year and a half, couldn’t get in. Enter Persian noble Zopyrus, and his brilliant, disgusting plan to take Babylon.

One morning the Babylonians rose to see the high ranking Persian at their gates, soaked in his own blood, whipped, with his ears and nose hacked off. He screamed that Darius had done this to him for failing to capture their city, and that now his rage was so great he wished to defect and help Babylon defeat the brutal Darius.

And … they totally bought it. Zopyrus had cut off his own nose and ears and arranged his own whipping, all with Darius’ knowledge. Zopyrus Rhinotmetus (no-nose) quickly rose in the ranks of the Babylonian army, and just as quickly weakened the city's defenses. Darius soon recaptured the city, and reportedly festooned Zopyrus with great titles and wealth.

Bad News for Blacks; Country’s Financial Picture Spells Their Doom

Via NC Renegade

 

The average person in the United States might think that Obama would be frantic and worried to a frazzle over the current national fiscal status and its dire outlook for the futures of the blacks of America.  But does Barack Hussein Obama look or act worried and downtrodden in his daily cavorts around the country or even the world?

If you said “No” you would be absolutely correct.  Things are working out fiscally perfect and just the way he, or I should say, his mentors in the U. N. have planned them.  The deeper in debt the blacks are the more indebted they will become to this phony tin-horn dictator who is bailing them out with taxpayer’s dollars and reaping the benefits of obsequiousness and poverty without the burden of personal debt or fear of having to pay taxes.

It’s the best of both worlds for Obama; he steals honest taxpaying citizens’ tax dollars from the U. S. Treasury with impunity and has no fear of being forced to repay it.  Thus his quasi legal acts of theft are also of no danger to his standings in the free world and they reap the huge benefits of gaining millions of ballot box advantage votes from a downtrodden segment of the population that is happy doing nothing but place an “X” in the box adjacent to the names of Democrats, Obama in particular, on the ballot for public office.

The more he steals and cheats, the happier and well fed his constituents become and the bigger the smile across the facial area where his prominent happy molars are rooted.

Some libertarians are applauding the recent Supreme Court decisions relating to same-sex marriage, not because of anything to do with the Constitution, limited government, federalism, individual liberty, the proper role of government, or separating marriage from the state, but because they just happen to like the idea of same-sex marriage. As I have argued elsewhere, they are entitled to their opinion, but there is no libertarian “position” on same-sex marriage.

On Tuesday, March 26, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments for and against California’s Proposition 8, a ballot initiative passed in 2008 that eliminated the right of same-sex couples to marry that the California Supreme Court had recognized.

On Wednesday, March 27, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments on the merits and demerits of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), federal legislation passed in 1996 that defined marriage as only “a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife” and that permits states to refuse to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states.

On June 26, 2013, the Supreme Court ruled that the section of DOMA that defined marriage (sec. 3) was unconstitutional, thus ending the ban on same-sex married couples being recognized as married and eligible to receive federal benefits. The Court also let stand a 2010 federal district court ruling that declared Proposition 8 to be unconstitutional.

Conservatives who believe in traditional marriage and consider the term “same-sex marriage” to be an oxymoron are disturbed by the Supreme Court’s rulings. This is not generally because they find fault with any legal or constitutional arguments, but because the Court did not, in their eyes, rule in favor of traditional marriage—legal and constitutional arguments be damned.

But conservatives are also disturbed by what they see as libertarian support for same-sex marriage. This is not generally because they find fault with any arguments about individual liberty and the proper role of government, but because libertarians are not, in their eyes, upholding traditional marriage—philosophical arguments be damned.
