For over ten years I listened to Right Wingers extolling the virtues of mandates. Finally, THEIR Heritage Foundation health care program gets passed and what do they do? Try to shut down the government to stop the mandates. Why? Because a bunch of libertarian radicals and tea baggers now jerk the chains that control their party. The only thing that makes sense is all the reporters tweeting that the smell of alcohol in the building is rampant. That explains much of what is happening. A radical minority can bring down our government without firing a shot and the majority can do nothing about it. That's some "libertarianism" for you: "Don't like our ideas? Tough ****. We're going to shove them down your throat whether you like it or not... in the name of liberty."
