I would be a liberatarian if they I didn't feel like they would leave the helpless to fend for themselves and if I thought they had an icecubes
chance in hell of WINNING anything.
While the latter point is a catch22 (they'll never win if we don't vote for them because we think they'll lose), the former is a real concern I
have about their agenda.
I 100% AGREE with their tenents with respect to the "able bodied" and able minded. DO for YOURSELF and leave me ALONE, BUT that doesn't work for
all of society. We have MANY unfortunates who simply can't fend for themselves.
I also like the "Government has NO SAY in the PERSONAL lives of its constituents" bit ALOT.
If someone wants to do drugs LET THEM, if they hurt anybody else while doing them LOCK THEM UP. Tax the dope to pay for helping the unfortunates and
build nice new roads with the money you SAVE form NOT paying all the cops and government agencies that make up the BULL# war on drugs.
There is a LOT that I like in the Liberatarian Platform, alot MORE than EITHER the Democrats OR the Rublicans have to offer...
