To say that Libertarians suck up to Socialists couldn't be further from the truth. Libertarians want the government out of our production and out of our economy, out of our wallets and out of our lives. It's the only way to oppose the Socialism you allege to hate so much, but you want to take the republican party tack instead, which supports using the government the same way the democrats do, but with different spending priorities. Instead of coming into our bathroom and telling us what kind of toilet to flush, Ann wants to come into our bedroom and tell us what kind of marriage to have, and suddenly that's not socialist? Don't kid yourself.
Libertarians say: Democrats/socialists/liberals can't take the money and spend it however they like, and you can't either, Ann Coulter. Conservatives want us to believe that big republican-party government isn't big government. They need a serious wake up call, and that's the reason I posted this OP. It isn't to blaspheme Ann Coulter; that's too easy. There are much deeper waters here and much bigger fish to fry. I'd rather highlight and expose the abject hypocrisy in republican-party thinking, figures like Ann Coulter are just a case in point.
Ann Coulter is obviously not just an empty-headed voice box. I think it's clear by the video that she really believes in what she says/thinks. She's fundamentally flawed in her reasoning however, and I'll point out a few of the ways how that's so in future replies. For now, suffice to say, I think her positions need to be challenged instead of either agreed with or silently rejected/ignored.
