Sorry, I'm a libertarian and don't want to enjoy a stripper party. Clearly you haven't got a clue.
The stripper comment is in reference to Hans-Hermann Hoppe (of the MISES Institute) having strippers circulate amongst the crowd at his annual gathering of "The Property and Freedom Society". I could provide numerous other related references to such activities that aren't in alignment with their preaching (like MISES president Douglas French's banking practices)....but there's probably no point considering how far deeply you are buried in this crap.

I didn't call a prophet a liar, but you said that I did. Who is the liar here?
Great question -
This was his personal opinion

, and I do not believe that it was a revelation from God
because God could not possibly have been so wrong about anything
I have never felt so humiliated in my life over anything as that the State of Utah voted for the repeal of Prohibition.
- President Heber J. Grant, Conference, Oct. 1934
From this very stand he pleaded with us not to repeal the Eighteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. He didn't speak as Heber J. Grant, the man, he spoke as the President of the Church and the representative of our Heavenly Father.
- George Albert Smith, Conference, Oct 1943
One of the saddest days in all of Utah's history was when the people, including the Latter-day Saints (for it could not have been done without them), rejected the counsel and urging of the Lord's prophet, Heber J. Grant, and repealed Prohibition long years ago--yet many of those voters had sung numerous times, "We Thank Thee, O God, For A Prophet."
- The Teachings of Spencer. W. Kimball
I go back to the words of Jehoshaphat: “Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.” (2 Chr. 20:20.)
There are many little things that test our willingness to accept the word of the prophets. Jesus said, “How often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!” (Matt. 23:37.)
So it has been through the history of mankind, and so it is today. In our own communities, even here in Utah, we have experienced some of this. President Grant carried to his grave a deep sense of sorrow that, contrary to his counsel, the people of Utah cast the final vote, in 1934, that repealed the Eighteenth Amendment to the Constitution.
I am grateful to say that we had a different experience some years ago when we joined with other citizens in a campaign to control the distribution of liquor. There is no question in my mind that great benefits have come as a result of the overwhelming response to direction from our prophet.
- President Gordan B. Hinckley, "Believe His Prophets", General Conference April 1992
Despite President Grant making the declaration over the pulpit in General Conference as a prophet - both in counsel and regret following the saints choices....as well as several following prophets who testified of his position on it as God's spokesman (also in General Conference). Well hopefully you wake up and recognize libertarianism for what it is rather than stiffening your neck and getting your back up in defense of your skewed paradigm.

You may as well and use it yourself because you obviously haven't studied it nor understand its precepts. Instead its just a word you use to push your opinion which is at odds with not only the prophets but God. Obviously contradicting the Constitution in the process which was established by God.
It is fascinating how people justify throwing the "Constitution" around to support wickedness (chain people down to addictions of both substances and body chemistry) when that would be one of the last things on God's agenda in establishing it.
