Mr. B — completely agree that I am not as well-versed in Libertarian ideals as others may be. But my concern is more along the lines of the intent of Libertarianism:
Unlike liberals or conservatives, Libertarians advocate a high degree of both personal and economic liberty. For example, Libertarians advocate freedom in economic matters, so we’re in favor of lowering taxes, slashing bureaucratic regulation of business, and charitable — rather than government — welfare.
Libertarianism is the view that each person has the right to live his life in any way he chooses so long as he respects the equal rights of others. Libertarians defend each person’s right to life, liberty, and property-rights that people have naturally, before governments are created.
So my question is this: if you were going to topple the intervention of government on society, would you do it through war (not easy and expensive), through debt (like the Soviet Union) or from within (as we see with the Cabinet appointees?
If I was a Libertarian, this would be the best way to achieve the stated beliefs of my party.
