Things That Make My Eyes Glaze Over

Stark-stupid “libertarians” who refute themselves in one paragraph:

Most libertarians understand the profoundly irrational aspect of voting — i.e. that you’ll have a greater effect on politics if you call in to a radio show and say something clever instead of going to the polls. You have a better chance running into Michael Badnarik at the Piggly Wiggly than having your vote be the deciding factor in an election. In the meantime, the teeming hordes follow their baser instincts all the way to the church basement and vote their “consciences.” But aside from the Constitution and the Courts, democracy is the only game in town.

Christ. Why not just advocate sun-worshiping? I mean, it’s irrational and all, but aside from reading chicken entrails, it’s the only game in town.
