You have a weird idea of what authoritarianism is if you think it is the revolutionary founding principle of the United States which can be summarized as: the equality of all people and the fundamental right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
You are ideologically on the wrong side of US history because what you support is counter to the goals of the US’s founding fathers and their revolutionary experiment. Call them a cult if you like, it doesn’t make your assertions any more correct. History is not on your side.
History is not on my side as a left leaning libertarian? Huh.. how do you figure? I love how people assume you're some nutty right winger if you merely don't share all the hardcore Authoritarian left wing views or hold some logical stances like "we can't have a a hundred million people flooding into this country and granted health care". We just do not have the money/stability for that.
Quality and the fundamental right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is precisely what I believe. I also believe in common sense.
