Mix of libertarian and retard, used to denote a libertarian who is idealistic and has unrealistic expectations for a hypothetical libertarian society.
This libertard the other day was telling me that if we removed all economic regulations the rising tide would lift all boats. Since he’s a libertard, he didn’t even think about the 19th century implementation that resulted in slavery, wage slavery, poorhouses, slums, child labor, and numerous economic crashes.

1. A mix of the words liberal and retard.
2. What all liberals should be called… for they are, in fact, retarded for having such idiotic beliefs…
3. Anyone with the last name Clinton
I was talking to some libertard, and he said that because we never found WMDs in Iraq, we should pull out of the war… Like liberating the Iraqis and getting rid of thousands of terrorist extremists wasn’t at least as, if not more, beneficial to our cause than ridding dangerous enemies of WMDs...

Why is it that when liberals are caught on this all we hear is “It is the past, lets move on” Repubs are supposed to answer endlessly. Hey libertards, let’s move on.

Subject: Taxes Aren’t the Only Price of Liberty
If enough people aren’t doing the above then the money spent on taxes is indeed wasted or even counterproductive and it’s easy to see how many would become libertards or Randroids who, like Lincoln, would prefer to take their despotism straight, “unalloyed by the base metal of hypocrisy.”
