A Libertarian...  by Anonymous Citizen on September 9, 2008 

...is pro-choice everything. So long as those choices do not harm others. I.E. no one is pro-choice for murder, rape, or robbery. But why not legalize marijuana, tax it heavily, and use the money to fund health care? Why not legalize prostitution, not street walkers but legitimate brothels and escort services. When regulated like in Amsterdam or the Bunny Ranch in Reno, there have never been any cases of S.T.D's.

If these activities were legal, I would still choose not to do either. But that's my choice. And it should be my choice, not a law!

Also Libertarians believe in small government. Small government and freedom-of-choice. What a concept!

How about a 17% flat income tax for every dollar above $40,000? Anybody making under 40K would be tax exempt. Let's face it, anybody making under 40K needs every dime they make. If you made $50,000 you would then pay 17% of $10,000. $1,700 a year. Not to shabby. If you made $100K, you would pay 17% of 60K. If you made $1 MILLION, you would pay 17% of 960K. You get the picture.
How could the government operate with so little tax money? Well this is where small government comes from. Your tax dollars would fund only the military, police/fire, roads, and schools. No welfare or any other tax-and-spend government programs. Fiscally responsible government, what a concept!

But if you are really gung-ho about either McCain or Obama, then vote for the same-ole same-ole.

What is a Libertarian?

VOTE LIBERTARIAN!  by Anonymous Citizen on September 9, 2008 

I am not a Republican or a Democrat. I'm a little bit of both which makes me neither. We American's didn't heed the warnings of our forefathers about not being sucked into a two-party system. So I, as most American's who haven't drank either the red or blue kool-aid, will either vote FOR which person we like better or AGAINST the one we hate the most. In 2006 (DeVos v.s. Granholm) I Liked DeVos as much as I hate Jennifer. In 2004 (Kerry v.s. Bush) I voted against Bush. But this year I'm totally indifferent.

Both McCain and Obama are very flawed, which is bad. But they are still both better than Bush, which is good. I'm not thrilled with either one, but I don't hate either one either. Therefore I find myself in the unique possition of being able to vote my party of choice which is Libertarian. Some say that this is a wasted vote. I beg to differ. Yes the Libertarian candidate (Bob Barr) will not be the next president. However if he were to receive just 5% of the total vote, then the Libertarians would have a legitimate shot in the 2012 election. The federal campaign fund would be divided 3 ways instead of two and the Libertarians would be allowed equal debate time and media coverage.

So if you are undecided about this election vote Libertarian. Not just any 3rd party candidate, but specificately Libertarian. 2012 is only 4 short years away!
