Bill Maher, "reformed" Libertarian (Video)

Toxin will really, REALLY not like this link but I loved it. Bill Maher explained on his show "Real Time" this week how he is no longer a Libertarian, and a lot of his reasons are really reflected in my own reasons for why I am not a Libertarian anymore either. This link really clarifies, for me, why Toxin and I disagree about a lot of what the current "Libertarians" like Rand Paul, etc, stand for and advocate. Rand, for instance, still wants to crack down on abortion rights, something that is NOT Libertarian at all. Probably most of you disagree with these points but it explains very well where I'm coming from, and why I used to be a Libertarian and am not anymore. --Joe
