Attn, DC Reasonoids: Who's Getting the Youth Vote? And the Libertarian Vote? Discuss The Long-Term Meaning of the Mid-Term Elections on Thursday, November 11 from 6:30—8:30PM at our DC HQ!

  1. We promise you that nothing–absolutely nothing–in this discussion will lead you to question even one of your cherished liberetarian beliefs. The libertarian interpretation of the results will be the only one you are exposed to. That is our pledge.

    1. Eddddward. Edddddward.


    3. That’s how we know it’s the real Max.

    4. Who cares? Rumor is Alyona will be there.

    5. Max, you should come and demonstrate your ability to pull complete nonsense out of your ass during the Q&A portion.

    6. Imagine, a libertarian magazine providing the libertarian perspective.


    7. Imagine, a libertarian magazine giving the libertarian interpretation.


      1. And it’s not like opposing views can be found elsewhere in society.

  2. So you guys DO have cocktail parties. Mother fuckers.

    1. Yeah, but they don’t serve cock nor tail nor cosmos.

      1. Oh I’m sure there will be at least a few cosmotarians there.

  3. Not interested?

    Hard and soft beverages will be served.

    Wait, an open bar? Quick, how much are tickets from LAX to DCA?

    1. D’oh!

      The first “?” should be a “.”.

  4. “hard beverages”?

    Does that mean teh reason will serve liquor in addition to beer?

    You really do need some whiskey sponsors.

    I once threatened to start the Whiskey and Ass-Kicking party and I still might. Guess what happens when you run out of bubble-gum, wait I mean shiwkey?

  5. The RSVP e-mail address gives an auto reply that says the woman is out until next week and doesn’t check her e-mail. That makes RSVPing a bit hard doesn’t it?

    1. the woman is out until next week and doesn’t check her e-mail

      If I wanted to be snarky I’d say that that message pretty much sums up libertarianism’s efficacy over the years. But I won’t say it.

      1. If you’re talking about the Libertarian Party, go ahead and say it, because it’s true. If you’re talking about libertarian ideas, they’ve had a bit more success, although are admittedly on the “ebb” side right now.

  6. Among other things, they demonstrate a gulf between the new candidates that rode the wave of anti-Obama sentiment and the legislative leadership of the party from which most of those candidates came.

  7. You know how I now liberetarians are dum? Becuas they arent liberals!


  8. Discuss The Long-Term Meaning of the Mid-Term Elections

    Long-term, it doesn’t really mean anything. Red Team is going to spend our money on foolish things for the next 2+ years, just like Blue Team has for the past 4, and Red Team before that…
