Liberaltarianism

Carl Pham, in the comments over at Transterrestrial Musings has the quote of the week. The context was the voting of recent immigrants, college students, etc.

And so on. Voting Democratic is kind of a newbie thing, in many ways. Something that seemed like a good idea at the time. It appeals to your first, inexperienced, unrealistic notions of what voting should accomplish, of how the world should be run. It’s kind of a Harlequin romance version of political activity. Most people grow out of it, although there is a certain hard core of dependents who never do, simply because the Democrats service their needs.
