    How so? It was a simple point. True Liberty means people make choices based on what they believe not what the government tells you or what morals some want to force. If Libertarians think a pro life view is okay then how about socialized medicine? Think of all that can save? How about everyone gets a house? Or a food allotment?

    Just saying...

    Liberal are for whatever is politically convenient for them. You're for Obamacare, that's not a choice.

    Ummm, yes there was taxation. According to the story, paying taxes is what Joseph and Mary were on their way to do, when Jesus was born.

    pro-life personally.. or politically?


    anyways, there's really no need to clarify, Libertarians can be pro-life or pro-choice.... personally , politically, both, or a combination.
