I love it so much I propose to steal it.
Stealing, of course, comes natural to Socialists like yourself.
But like a good socialist I shall let him share it. This makes us better and stronger than you.

When you are lying in the ditch and some punk kid versed in the ideology of libertarianism takes your last dollar and sets you on fire; remind me not to piss on you to put it out.

So says the resident, brainwashed totalitarian after his latest session with the tyrannical government he answers to.

Well, at least I'm glad to see you admit to being a wolf in sheep's clothing like the rest of your Socialist comrades.

I don't choose to have such 19th century labels attached to my views, Bob, so I never call myself a socialist. However an idealised rendition of the Australian ethos is that every bugger is entitled to a fair go and thus I would prefer to call myself an egalitarian. I well realise that this ethos is honoured as much in the breach as it is respected in the observance but I nevertheless regard it as a worthy statement of cultural principle. You are naturally free to think otherwise, just as I am naturally free not to give a fuck what you think.

'19th century labels' --spot on. 'Socialist', 'commie', 'comrade'; bob is a fossil from a distant past. Unfortunately there are lots of 'bobs', which is probably why the US is such a backward hell-hole.

egalitarian
[ih-gal-i-tair-ee-uh n]
adjective
1. asserting, resulting from, or characterized by belief in the equality of all people, especially in political, economic, or social life.

Do you mind explaining exactly what it is you advocate in political, economic and social terms?

Yes I do mind. The phrase "pearls before swine" springs to mind.

Just as I suspected, you are one gutless motherfucker who doesn't have the slightest idea of what he stands for beyond what his Socialist government has pounded into his thick skull since the day he was born!

I think that is the natural state of the libertarian; no one ever give a fuck what Boob thinks he has to remain a loner.

Are you an egalitarian, too? If so, maybe you'd like to elaborate on it in political, economic and social terms, unlike Leo, who doesn't have the balls he was born with.

It's true that they don't get the same amount of exercise which they once did but I can assure you I still have them for ornamental purposes.
