As a relatively new Party that is just coming into its own more and more people are beginning to ask just what a Libertarian believes. Ask any ten people who are Libertarian what Libertarians believe and you’ll get eleven different answers…not all of them even similar. However, there are certain core beliefs that all Libertarians aspire to.
Libertarianssupport maximum liberty in both personal and economic matters. We advocate a much smaller government; one that is limited to protecting individuals from coercion and violence either internal or external. Libertarians tend to embrace individual responsibility, oppose government bureaucracy and taxes, promote private charity, tolerate diverse lifestyles, support the free market, and defend civil liberties.
We believe that YOU, and not the Government, can best determine how you want to live your life. And as long as you are not interfering with those same rights that others possess the Government should leave you alone.
Just because you believe that another’s action is either wrong or even harmful to that individual is not a good enoughh reason to stop him should he choose to continue on the path he has chosen. These are good reasons to argue with him or beg him or reason with him but not to visit him with any manner of evil should he do otherwise. In order to do that it would have to be determined that his actions directly affect others.
Insofar as the actions of an individual affect only himself, the individual is King.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: What have you got to lose by voting for a third party candidate except less of the same?
HAVE YOU CONSIDERED?
If you vote for the lesser of two evils, you're STILL voting for evil.
