  1. At the point where you guys are talking about libertarians.

    I think that the libertarians operate under a specific set of values and are willing to side with whomever best represent those values on a majority of the issues at any given time. Right now the left (especially the far left) are this weird, funhouse mirror of the religious right of the late 70s and 80s that they’ve become almost authoritarian in their stances. As a result, the right in the US is almost more liberal than the left is. Which is sort of a bizarre notion to try and conceptualize, but it’s the left doing things like Bill Nye Saves the World and posing threats to freedom of speech and expression. (IE: “hate speech isn’t free speech” and an over-emphasis on the feelings of whomever might interpret the words of the speaker)

    It’s kind of a strange place to be, because for as long as I can remember, the comedians and people speaking truth to power were all on the left. And there’s been this fundamental and tectonic shift in the last couple of years that’s been sort of hard to deal with. And I think you see the libertarians and more “pragmatic not dogmatic” people fleeing from the left end of the spectrum as they devolve into this weird Orwellian authoritarianism.
