    Wanna try again, and this time don't embarrass yourself...
    Libertarian view on these issues are pretty simple.
    The sanctity of the process. Long lines or voter fraud? Which one is worse?

    Maybe I'm mis-recalling, but while I'm admittedly on the quite liberal side of libertarianism on social issues, the positions you tend to take on here are what I would describe as fairly directly in line with Buckley's "big C conservatism". While there is a bit of libertarian bent there, it's largely overshadowed by social conservatism.

    One doesn't actually address the other. How exactly is closing polling places cutting back on voter fraud?

    Were the issue actually some hypothetical solution that would create longer lines while effectively combatting voter fraud, I agree, that answer is pretty clear.

    Where you're doing something without a hint as to how it might combat voter fraud (such as closing the majority of polling places without any explanation of why it needs to be done) but that makes it harder to vote, I think the libertarian answer is equally clear. And it's not the one you're advocating in that instance.

    Social conservative???? ME??? Umm, no.

    Want ALLL Drugs legal.
    Don't care about what people do in their own homes.

    Ask me any question. ANY question. I will be on the libertarian side on 99.5 out of 100 questions.

    I'll hang up and listen.

    I said maybe I'm misremembering, evidently I was. I thought I remembered you and I disagreeing pretty vehemently and fundamentally about something social before, and admittedly I tend to be on the quite liberal social side of the libertarian views and expect some disagreement there, but perhaps I was mistaken.

    The only issue I have is abortion. But that is from a beginning of life standpoint. People can do what ever they want with their bodies...Just not a fan of someone infringing on others liberties.
