Libertarianism Definitively Defined

I'll admit this is just a literary doodle, but what the hell. I was in a Target store the other day and overheard a conversation between two self-identified "Libertarians" trying to agree on what they meant by that. 

All I can say to a  21st Century tea-soaked political world where the likes of Ron Paul and Charles Koch spend millions of dollars attempting the same thing as my two twenty-something guys in the Target with the same abysmal results is this:

Libertarianism is a political philosophy tailored to those who love to hear themselves talk, because it’s so impossible to explain that when someone asks them what it means to be a libertarian they feel obliged to chase their tails until they talk themselves into knots just to get themselves to the back end of the original question.
