If you look at the web site of the caucus behind the destruction of the LP platform, you’ll get a bizarre idea of what libertarianism is. They seem to welcome any and all deviations. You can believe in war, drug laws, taxation, even the FDA.
Isn’t that great? You can support big government, mass murder and persecution of peaceful minorities — and be a “libertarian”!
You can look someone in the eye who is dying because the FDA has stolen his right to take life-saving meds, and say, “Sorry, but the FDA has a right to kill you. And I’m a libertarian.”
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: If some of these “libertarians” were around in Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia, their primary goal would be to privatize the concentration camps.4:12 pm on July 10, 2006 Email Anthony Gregory
