I am hurt
Don't be hurt, it's not true...
Libertarians do what both parties won't and DON'T want to do.
When people vote liberal it seems they are voting them in because the liberal leader is Promising the people what he will give to them...
It's the old handout syndrome... I'll vote for him because he promised us all pink fluffy elephants, and candy canes...
If you notice in Kerry's speeches all he does is talk about what he's going to give out to the people...
Like we need him to "give us" handouts...
Apparantly this country can't rely on themselves, and it's come down to a lying sack of shti that promises to give people what they want...
Repubs take away... They will cut taxes, cut spending on social programs, invest in weapons "just in case" something happens where we have to defend
ourselves" They seem to be alot paranoid...
And while they are in their paranoid state of mind, they believe the citizens can fend for themselves, so they take away, thinking that it's best if
people stand on their own two feet and stop depending on them...
But remember they can take programs, and cut taxes, and give us more laws to abide by... See: more paranoia. And invest more in military and
Libertarians say: a free-market economy and the abundance and prosperity it brings; a dedication to civil liberties and personal freedom that marks
this country above all others; and a foreign policy of non-intervention, peace, and free trade as prescribed by America's founders."
Here is what they say about the other two parties:
WHICH IS TRUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We hold that all individuals have the right to exercise sole dominion over their own lives, and have the right to live in whatever manner they choose,
so long as they do not forcibly interfere with the equal right of others to live in whatever manner they choose.
Governments throughout history have regularly operated on the opposite principle, that the State has the right to dispose of the lives of individuals
and the fruits of their labor. Even within the United States, all political parties other than our own grant to government the right to regulate the
lives of individuals and seize the fruits of their labor without their consent.
We, on the contrary, deny the right of any government to do these things, and hold that
where governments exist, they must not violate the rights of any individual: namely, (1) the right to life -- accordingly we support the prohibition
of the initiation of physical force against others; (2) the right to liberty of speech and action -- accordingly we oppose all attempts by government
to abridge the freedom of speech and press, as well as government censorship in any form; and (3) the right to property -- accordingly we oppose all
government interference with private property, such as confiscation, nationalization, and eminent domain, and support the prohibition of robbery,
trespass, fraud, and misrepresentation.
Since governments, when instituted, must not violate individual rights, we oppose all interference by government in the areas of voluntary and
contractual relations among individuals. People should not be forced to sacrifice their lives and property for the benefit of others. They should be
left free by government to deal with one another as free traders; and the resultant economic system, the only one compatible with the protection of
individual rights, is the free market.
