We learn about being libertarian when we're children. We're taught by our parents
- Don't hit
- It's not yours, don't take it
- Keep your promises
It teaches us respect for others. Now if we could get people to apply it to public policy as well.
- The power of government is used to force people to live the way others think they should.
- The government power of taxation, regulation, or eminent domain is used to take property that belongs to others.
- Politicians will say anything do anything to get elected. But what they end up doing is making promises the taxpayers can't keep.
Libertarians remember what our parents taught us.
- Individual liberty and responsibility. You own yourself and no one else. You have the freedom to think and act as you choose as long as you don't harm others.
- Since you own yourself, you own the fruit of your labor. It's not your neighbor's and it's certainly not the government's.
- Libertarians believe that it is the highest duty of government to defend the inalienable rights of the individual, as expressed in our founding documents. Because a government that is limited in its power won't hit you and take your stuff!
