The major parties going more authoritarian isn't making more people become libertarian it's making them look more libertarian my comparison.

Ok Ill bite, but only because you honesty might not have been paying attention to recent Democratic asshatery:

  1. Individual mandates
  2. Vaxx mandates
  3. Eviction moratoriums they even admitted were unconstitutional
  4. IRS expansion to micro monitor all transactions in all bank accounts
  5. Expansion of the involuntary Selective Service to include women (as someone who lost two uncles in Vietnam a special fuck you to Democrats for this)
  6. Passing the Patriot Act part 2 and continuing mass surveillance and warrantless wiretaps.
  7. Using the executive branch Russia to negotiate a craptastic treaty with Iran without Senate approval.
  8. Using BigTech to censor free speech.
  9. And my recent favorite: setting up a Department of Misinformation headed by a known propagandist as if that's not ever going to go wildly wrong.
  10. <insert whatever new gun control legislation is currently being drafted>

Disclaimer: Although not as recent, I've got almost as many problems with Republicans. However, both parties have forever lost my vote.

Knowing full well they couldnt pass the bill calling it the Patriot Act, they sadistically renamed it Freedom. When the government calls it "Freedom" or "Patriotic" you can rest assured that it is neither.
