Hi,

I was wondering who else on here was a true Libertarian.


**********************************************************************************************

-I believe that government should be minimal and that they should stay out of people's lives.

A good start would be a federal gov. that functions much like Montana's state gov., where the legislative branch (senators and house reps.) meet every second year for 90 days to review laws and maybe change some things if needed.

The other two branches of the gov. (executive and judiciary) are government lite, and are entirely based on the U.S. and Montana Constitution.



**********************************************************************************************
-I believe that the fruit of your labor should belong to you in its entirety and that you shouldn't have to support those who don't feel like working.


**********************************************************************************************

-I believe that people should not have to pay taxes for things that they don't use/need?

If you need public schooling, pay public schooling taxes, if you need to drive on public roads, pay such fees or taxes in association with your plate and insurance fees, if you need access to the electrical grid and the sewer system pay property taxes, etc.

Basically a user-payer system.


**********************************************************************************************

-I believe that the gov. has no business to license people's activities and hobbies.


**********************************************************************************************

I believe many other things along the same lines. The bottom line is that I believe government should be but a whisper in our lives and that we should trust people to shape their own destinies.

I embraced that party after I 've read Patrik Bucannans' (sp??) book "The death of the West" when it came out - same year he was running for president. I 'm so stumped as to why so few people (at least in my neck of the woods) like his approach to things. Sometimes it feels like some kind of block was installed in peoples' minds when it comes to a third party in this country that doesn't let their brains venture beyond a certain point:(

I agree with all your beliefs above. I guess that makes me a true libertarian.

I believe that if you aren't affecting other people with your behavior, then the government has no right to stick your nose in your business. I also believe that if your behavior affects you negatively, it is no ones fault but your own, and you are fully responsible for that behavior.

For example, smoke all you want (and whatever substance you want.) But when your health deteriorates, don't expect me to pay for your healthcare!

Natural selection. The dumb ones will end up getting weeded out of our society!

I like the idea of paying taxes for only what you use. I pay so much in taxes each month that I will never get a dollar out of. I don't mind paying for roads, courts, etc. but it drives me nuts to have to pay for a widely abused welfare system.

I could go on for pages, so I better stop there.

I have been a Libertarian for years. Read Atlas Shrugged when I was 12, although not voluntarily of course. My father made me read it.

I've been a Libertarian for quite a while without knowing it. I used to vote Republican, but I'm done now (at least on the federal level - I really love my TN reps/congressmen).

The government has never came across something it couldn't screw up. Less government, better for the people PERIOD.

I dropped the Republican Party this year,.. after they abandoned their principals. Regestering as a Libertarian when I get some spare time. I love the US Constitution. I bought quite a few copies years ago and I still pass them out. Ordered them from the gov't printing office for $1.75 each. Now, I get them from the 'net & print them. It's disgusting the number of people that haven't a clue about the Constitutiion, Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence. Help others learn, ok?

Hi,

Another interesting observation;
In a libertarian society you are free to live a communist or socialist lifestyle. Just find a group of people with similar ideas and create your own little idealist society where you can implement your ideas among likeminded people. Noone will stop you or have anything to say about it as long as you don't force it down other peoples throats.

However, in a communist/socialist society you are absolutely not free to live a libertarian lifestyle among likeminded people!

Think about it..

I really got turned on to the "Libertarian movement" when I began reading about Ron Paul. I really wished he would have been on the ticket. I read his book "A Revolution: The Manifesto" and I really become rejuvenated with some hope for politics in this country...
