Don’t be fooled by this article! The author has a skewed understanding of libertarian principles. For example, he thinks libertarians are fine with being oppressed by government as long as it is local/state government. Yeah, that makes sense for a party that is all about individual freedom and limited government. Yeah, you can probably find a few quotes along that line from people who call themselves libertarians, but they are light years from what the party stands for. In fact, if you really want to know that the Libertarian Party stands for — which you won’t find much of in this article — look at their party platform for yourself at: https://www.lp.org/platform. This article is just political propaganda to try to get his side to win. And, as they say, the truth is usually the first casualty in politics.
