I say we're best off if government just leaves us alone to our peaceful cooperation with whomever we please. Let politicians advocate moral behavior. Let them give to charities. But leave government -- which is physical force -- out of it....
What is the point of having a Libertarian for President? He cannot, let me repeat, cannot do anything he is advocating. Read the Constitution, people. Libertarians blather on and on about it, but haven't even taken the time to read it. The President does not pass laws - Congress does. A Libertarian President is going to convince Congress to cut defense spending 43%, legalize marijuana, and do away with the IRS? Get real. This is the problem with third party advocates - they don't have a clue about how the government is structured. If they did, they would understand that our form of government does not lend itself to a third party. You have to have the third party represented with decent numbers in Congress as well as the Presidency.
All political candidates call themselves freedom-lovers, but they are not. Neither major party really opposes government control of the economy or of our personal lives. I'm a libertarian because I see the false choice offered by political left and right: Democrats talk about personal liberty; Republicans talk about economic freedom. But what they do once in power belies their words.
