First let me say there are many, many good Libertarians and my comment are not reflections on them. This is just my opinion.
First, if I have it right, the general idea that I get is a "live and let live", as long as it's within the Constitution. As the Constitution is
directed at Gov't, then I assume your referring to elected legislators. Not "The People".
As the Constitution restrains gov't, it's LAW that restrains people, not the Constitution. Do I have this right?
In an earlier thread I got into it with a libertarian who used the Mosque at ground zero as his example of "violating the constitution". Yet, if
Libertarians ran the show, they couldn't stop "The People" from stopping it due to their own belief that laws restricting them to the Constitution
would bar them from making any law regarding religion as a violation of the separation of church and state. So the whole concept of how they would
implement this concept escapes me.
But that's not the point of this thread.
There is a culture war that we are in the middle of. I won't bore going over that. However, as in a shooting war, as this one is not, fortunately,
one doesn't "live and let live" towards the "enemy'. One defeats him.
To those that will jump in and say "you fool, don't you realize that both sides are being duped by the 'elite'"?
I answer I DON'T CARE. I want our culture to win no matter who's pulling the damn strings. We can always take care of them afterwards. We outnumber
them by just a bit...
So to make it simple, we have the anarchists who say "no rules". Then the Libertarians who say "Constitution only...then no rules." Then there's
the conservatives that say, "constitution and rules". Our rules. Our Judeo-Christian moral code rules. That which worked in the past and helped put
America on the top in virtually every category one could think of. Workability. Tried and true.
The Constitution is useless without a group that has a moral code, with the majority following that moral code as best as they can. "laws" add
consequences to violating that moral code, not live and let live.
Truth be told, the reason we are in this mess is due, at least partially, to having already being suck into "live and let live". We've done it with
our culture, our language, our institutions, our gov't...the list is a long one.
We went from a heterosexual society, at least in public, to the point where our senate is drafting laws against discriminating against gays. At the
same time, the 'discrimination' against gays is being replaced with discrimination against Christians. In the military, gov't, schools and the list
grows as we speak.
So all "live and let live" has gotten us is a degraded moral level, an ineffective/repressive gov't, yet again..on and on.
You want MORE live and let live????
I think not.
I'm not a rocket scientist, so forgive my simplistic thread. Although, sometimes simple is better...just look under your hood sometime..
