Context and questions
“I’ve been hoping that libertarians would realize that [republicans] not only have no intention of making government smaller but they have absolutely no respect for individual rights either. I realize that taxation is at the top of most libertarians’ list of issues. But I think it’s time for many of them to go back and re-read their John Stuart Mill “On Liberty” and expand their definition of freedom a little bit. Taxation can be onerous and tyrannous. But dear God, it’s not the ONLY definition of tyranny nor are all levels of taxation onerous.
Maybe libertarians don’t feel the yoke tightening around their neck from the corporate oligarchy and the religious right, but I sure as hell do. Maybe this circus is the last straw for some of them too.”
