The Problem With Libertarians

If you believe in the supremacy of the individual over the collective, if you consider morality to be personal, if you want the State to leave you alone while not demanding it persecute someone else, you might be a libertarian. I'm a right-libertarian because I support war when necessary. I don't cry tears over drones killing terrorists, and while I would like to legalize drugs, I don't see drug dealers as victims the way other libertarians do. Of course, if you want to win, you vote Republican, hopefully for someone like Rand Paul and not a libertarian-hating RINO like Christie.

That is not the opinion of all libertarians. Abortion is an issue about which libertarians have agreed to disagree. Life is not about perfect agreement, it's about constantly seeking common ground.

eric....there is no common ground in abortion....the baby is either allowed to live...or....she isn't. No Compromise!!!! No justification exists to allow the deliberate killing of a preborn baby...none.

Libertarians all agree that taxpayers ought not be forces to pay for abortions.

Not all libertarians all agree on all the same things.

Right. Libertarians are free to support, or condemn, abortion (and prostitution, gambling, gay marriage, wearing brown shoes with blue pants, etc.) and are unlikely to reach a consensus on any given social issue. But they are united in their opposition to government's engineering of social issues, as even libertarians who support abortion reject the idea of tax money paying for abortions.

Thanks for the post.
I didn't know that I agree with Rand Paul on abortion.

Rand Paul is a falling star.
