Libertarianism isn’t some cutting-edge new age philosophy that somehow is not part of the political spectrum no matter how often they may claim it
is. For all their talk about civil liberties, ending the wars and legalizing pot, it’s all a wet dream. It’s about time libertarians realize this!
It is indeed a mixture of contradictions, and the incorruptible Dr. No is no exception to that rule!
Ron Paul and his followers would have you thinking that the Constitution is the Bible, and an individual mandate will be issued to all US citizens to
only follow libertarian way of thinking. Because it’s the right one! After all, all of the founding fathers were libertarians. Reagan was a
libertarian, Lincoln was a libertarian, FDR was a libertarian. Even Dennis Kucinich would be a great Vice President because he aligns with our
mainstream views so much!
Despite the Ronulans’ praise for their God. They believe that everyone thinks like them. They believe gay people do not exist. They believe that
liberals just live in communist Russia and do not exist in America. They believe that Republicans are the devil that must be destroyed from the inside
out! (You can deny all you want but Various libertarians told me these statements on this website)
Even though the polls consistently show that Libertarian philosophy only makes up 7% of the national way of thinking. They continue their rants,
chants, slogans, and propaganda. To the brainwashed liberaltarians this propaganda does not exist on the Libertarian battle field because they are
right and you are wrong! It’s everyone else that is doing it and definitely not them. They are just spreading the inconsistent message of
They would like to end government programs that are necessary for a functional society at a time, in which our society has never been more
interdependent in every possible way. Despite that belief, Ron Paul fellow supporters are more liberal than they are conservative. They use the
constitution like the Bible to skew their own viewpoints and say that they are right and you are wrong. They say that in the constitution it says that
people have the right to do whatever they want, by quoting, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are
endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” They frequently forget to
include the other points the Declaration of Independence—Not the Constitution—was making before and after this statement.
Before this statement the Declaration of Independence reads. “When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the
political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws
of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them
to the separation.”
Yes, the Declaration does in fact talk about how the colonials overthrew the British Government which the libertarians liken to the current bloated US
government. However, they fail to see the point. This means that man has a right to form a government, it is up to man to make sure that the
government is right, just, and moral. It is up to man to declare what is and what is not allowed in society. It’s not anything goes! It’s up to
society, because man makes up society!
The Colonists go on to say that you cannot just want a government destroyed because they do not agree with your world view. The Declaration of
Independence then lists all of the charges against the King. These charges were agreed upon by all the people in the colonies! So while libertarians
and their social conservative friends may agree at least in the sense that the government has become like the tyranny the colonists endured from Great
Britain, until we get the liberals on board and they see the light, there will be no conservative government overthrow!
However, we DO overthrow our leaders. Every four years we elect a new President. Every two years we elect a new house of representatives and a new
senate. Still to this day, the Congress and the White House work in checks and balances. If the people do not like a law, they have no reason not to
overrule that. Or at least bring it to a President’s attention.
The Constitution on the other hand is a very different piece of documentation. According to Wikipedia “The Constitution of the United States is the
supreme law of the United States of America. The first three Articles of the Constitution establish the rules and separate powers of the three
branches of the federal government: a legislature, the bicameral Congress; an executive branch led by the President; and a federal judiciary headed by
the Supreme Court. The last four Articles frame the principle of federalism. The Tenth Amendment confirms its federal characteristics.”
According to Wikipedia Federalism is defined as: “a system of government in which sovereignty is constitutionally divided between a central
governing authority and constituent political units (such as states or provinces). Federalism is a system based upon democratic rules and institutions
in which the power to govern is shared between national and provincial/state governments.”
So even though libertarians would have you believe that the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution are based on libertarian philosophy it is
a complete lie! They are in fact documents that promote building a government. Allowing the colonies which at the time which had different confusing
governments to come together in order to build one huge FEDERAL government! It is the largest inconsistency in the libertarian doctrine and one of the
biggest reasons why it can never be implemented nationwide without some dictator like rule.
There were many different belief systems among the founding fathers themselves. Political Parties did not exist in the early days of the government.
Alexander Hamilton and the Anti-federalists would be considered Republican. Madison wanted a powerful central government and went to great lengths to
get what he wanted put inside the constitution and disagreed with Hamilton on numerous occasions. Hamilton believed in a smaller streamlined
centralized government. So did Jefferson but as President he used what today would be considered an executive order for the Louisiana Purchase. Many
believe that the federalists would be today’s liberals.
I think it’s pointless to think about what political party these people might have been. Everyone has their own ideology and it is what skews their
viewpoints about the founding fathers. So to say that the founding fathers themselves are libertarian is ridiculous! To say the constitution or the
declaration of independence is libertarian is also ridiculous. It takes power away from the people and gives it to a centralized government! Another
huge contradiction rooted inside libertarian doctrine.
Ron Paul is no different. You can’t take Ron Paul as a serious libertarian because he’s not. Otherwise he would be in the libertarian party
working to make it more powerful, like Ross Perot did with independents or Gary Johnson with the Libertarians. Instead of hijacking my party, the
Ron Paul is not a defender of your freedoms or the constitution. Ron Paul style Libertarians change the meaning of the Constitution to further their
propaganda as proven above.
