Exactly. Libertarianism is essentially sociopathy. Just look at that Ron Paul video in which he says healthy 30 year olds should sooner die than have the state pay their way - and the whole audience roared with approval. The disturbing thing about that Ron Paul video was he actually looked angry as he contemplated the question of the state being asked to pay to keep someone alive -- like the real affront was the imposition on the taxpayer.
