It struck me this morning that "libertarian" is now a euphemism like 
"eccentric."
If you are poor and crazy, you're crazy. If you're rich and crazy, 
you're "eccentric."

If you are poor and live off the government, you are a "welfare cheat."
If you are rich and live off the government, you are a "libertarian."
