You've being listening to Big Bird again, haven't you?  Look, he's as
dumb as a post so start looking for new friend.  No libertarian believes
nor would say "might makes right" or "one dollar, one vote".  Old
feather brains put you wrong.  Instead, a libertarian would say individual
rights trump the majority vote, and everyone should be equal before the
law. Just ask Bob. Now, here is an introduction to the libertarian
philosophy presented in a shockwave flash format.  I would not have bothered
to provide you with this link had I not been so impressed with your
ability to correctly spell "libertarian" even if incorrectly spelling your
own name.  "Libertarian" is a word with ~five~ syllables, too!  Very
good, Mr Snuffleupagus!  After watching the animation you can
go back to Sesame Street and give Big Bird a good brain slapping.
