Why are Libertarians more successful than leftists in the United States?

Cold War propaganda essentially. If you program a nation to hate a group of ideologies over the course of generations and decades, as well as actively suppress any domestic activity involving and/or inspired by the ideologies, chances are said ideologies aren't gonna be very popular in the nation for a ==very== long time.


 No.2482028

Narcissism.


 No.2482039

because they want to cut taxes, regulations, and pretty much everything in general. This resonates with a lot of people who want to hoard money

They want the tax to be very low so that means many people wanted to have some money left in their accounts.

Libertarian party are neocons + dudeweed. I wouldn't call that sucessful. Bernie is obviously much less corrupt/compromising that establishment libertarians.


 No.2483342

>>2482002

Because burgers still believe in The Burger Dream, and lolberts tell them that the only reason they aren't as succesful as The Zuck and Jeff Bezos is the evil government.


 No.2483362

>why is a group who says it idolizes the founding fathers of the United States and bases much of its political ideology on Thomas Jefferson's writings as well as on a strict interpretation of the constitution more successful in the United States than the ideology of a German economist

There is a strong cultural basis for libertarianism among normal proles, especially in the USA. Their entire morality is based on many of these concepts.


 No.2483364

>>2483314

I don't care what you think of lolbertardians, but Ron Paul is far from a neocon, that's as stupid as when they called Obama a commie. And in Bernie's last big speech at the State of the Union he as pushing the retarded neocon Russia narrative.


 No.2483397

>>2483364

But Ron Paul is retired, and he never had nationwide exposure too. His son deviates from business as usual ever so slightly.


 No.2483738

Because their message is seen as reasonable and intelligent, simply because that's the MAIN selling point. It's basically tfw to intelligent + the appeal to weed legalization

>WHY ARE CAPITALISTS MORE SUCESSFUL THAN SOCIALISTS IN BURGERLAND

WEW, I WONDER WHY, LAD.


 No.2485946

It's because there is no left Libertarian party in the US. So this draws in liberals who want much more lax laws. Most of those aren't even aware of the far right economic stances and think it's just about social and domestic policy.


 No.2486007

>>2482002

Because the other outlet for Capitalism's discontents advocates for a narcissistic brand of societal corrosion and cultural hedonism. You've essentially signaled economic liberation and world peace as the ideology of spoiled sybarites, leaving intensified exploitation and wars of zionist imperial aggression as the remaining reasonable option. Just as your masters bid you to.


 No.2486122

Most people think of communism as big government, when the end goal is actually to dissolve big government.


 No.2486144

>>2483362

which is why i think more libertarian flavors of socialism probably have greater appeal here in burgerland. have noticed a lot of people here will start posting about their own countries and they're often in europe and eastern europe where you've got that ☭TANKIE☭ tradition. not that there's anything wrong with that of course.

maybe it's different in some of the latin countries like spain and italy.


 No.2486188

Yo wish you pinko loving fuck. If we had freedom in this country, we wouldn't have 95% of the laws that we have. I saw this circlejerk on the front page, so I'm stopping by to tell you fags that you're losing the current paradigm shift, and we will reign supreme, till freedom disunites us in death.

We Americans and righteous citizens of liberty know all about your sleazy tactics, and your lust for power over others. We read books, not burn them. You can learn much from the pen of our forefathers, if not for self improvement and the growth of one's knowledge, but for the very semantic reasoning: that it pisses off communists. While I'm here, I'll give you a chilling little example of foregone knowledge that would be long forgotten if not for the fact I pulled it out of one of my old books:

"The whole problem of potential ideological violence becomes more serious since the most potent organization, the Communist party, has mastered the technique of camouflaging its advocacy of force and violence, providing a cover behind which it can develop new strength, both in membership and influence, which may enable it to attain sufficient potency to seize state power. In communism, this technique is called "Aesopian language," that is, the use of roundabout or elusive words to conceal the Party's real intentions of violence—words which the "initiated" fully understand in their Marxist-Lennist meanings while the general public is fooled. Hence, the Party is able to operate "fronts," form alliances with noncommunist groups, and encourage citizens to drop their fear of communism. Under the cover of "Aesopean language," the Party is able to draw money, talent and influence for its cause from noncommunist elements of society. The paradoxical situation arises that noncommunists, who actually have no sympathy with communism, are manipulated to support its objectives, enabling the Party to accumulate power for future strikes against our society."

because americans think they're all gonna get rich if those pesky laws just didn't get in the way

the "temporarily embarrassed millionaire" shit

it's very unfortunate, because this mindset exists even in very poor areas who wouldn't even gain wealth from libertarian policies

libertarianism is juuuuuuuust slightly out of the status quo to seem "radical" to people and it's not as "scary" as communism

No, they are (Classical) Liberals. They are differentiated from American (Social) Conservatives in that they theoretically don't want laws outlawing abortions and the like, and from American (Social) Liberals in that they don't think it's the government's job to amend poverty and other societal ailments.

They are, however, the single greatest threat facing the American left today. In lieu of a properly influential leftist party, these bootlickers have co-opted pro-gun, pro-drug, pro-abortion, and anti-war rhetoric to suit their needs, attracting a handful of devout followers and influencing many voters throughout both major parties.

Their inescapable caveat, however, is that their economics are fundamentally aligned against the average American's best interests. It's for this reason they simply ram the line of "lower taxes" down our throats, before dazzling the typical voter with rhetoric about the gold standard. As socialists and communists, it is absolutely imperative that we reply to this with a direct and public criticism of the capitalist mode of production, followed by the presentation of a socialist alternative.

Not gonna lie, I feel like this sentiment is starting to go away in recent years. Especially among the older demographic, working-class people are starting to realize they're not as comfortable as they were growing up, particularly if they've got expensive health issues such as cancer, chronic pain, or degenerative diseases. Whether my generation will carry the torch, or simply adapt to worsening circumstances, is anyone's guess.
