    Libertarian Issues

    I pulled a list of issues that the Libertarian party calls for on it's website(Issues | Libertarian Party). I here alot about big "L" vs little "l" Libertarians, so which of these issues do the libertarians here believe in.

    If you are not a Libertarian, can you please not answer this poll. let's leave it to the Libertarians please.

    Edit: Poll added

    Re: Libertarian Issues

    The elimination of drug prohibition, interventionism in foreign policy, and gun bans, though my own proposed "solutions" there are still something radically different than anything the "Libertarian" Party would propose. I also support full amnesty rather than partial amnesty for illegal immigrants, and don't believe that any civil libertarian justification for anything else is even conceivable.

    A reminder: please do not vote in this poll if you are not a libertarian...Joe, I am looking at you right now...

    Oh, and third poll option, the first word should be "avoid", not "avid"...

    rage hardly strikes me as one who leans anti-authoritarian either.

    Re: Libertarian Issues

    I could only agree with two of the items on the list:

    End drug prohibition
    Semi-amnesty for illegal aliens(work for amnesty)
    I'm not sure that very many actual libertarians would actually agree with semi-amnesty for illegal aliens. A lot of them tend to be very xenophobic.

    When did you become a libertarian?

    Oh, and xenophobia is not required to oppose amnesty programs.

    Re: Libertarian Issues

    I am a sorta-small-L-libertarian, so I answered the poll.

    I agree, to some degree/level, with all the issues except any sort of amnesty to illegals.

    There is one poll option that I didn't answer that I have to call into question. "Avid interventionism in foreign affairs" is not, to my knowlege, a position of the Libertarian Party or a majority of serious libertarians...in fact, the opposite would be true.

    I'm wondering what led you to put that issue, formulated that way, on the poll?

    My own position on interventionism is somewhat in flux. On the one hand, I'm really not crazy about it: we tend to get involved in places where we don't necessarily have a strong security intrest, give the wrong nations a "pass" who might really be a threat, and conduct our operations with something less than shining genius when we do intervene. OTOH, I still think that once in a while it is a choice between "fight them over there, now; or here on our own soil later", so my thoughts on foreign interventionism are mixed.

    As for drugs, I see no reason not to legalize weed and maybe some other drugs, and plenty of reasons that it could be beneficial, but I have a hard time agreeing with the legalization of something as toxic as Meth or as bad as PCP.

    Generally speaking I support the free market, and free market medical care, BUT I have come to recognize that a few essential bits of regulation would be dangerous to do without.

    Well there ya go... I'm not a full-bore libertarian but take it for what it is worth.

    Re: Libertarian Issues

    Do we have an inclusive definition other than the Party for the purposes of this thread, incidentally? I'll say anyone on the bottom half of the Political Compass, and would demand the bottom left corner in one of my more rigid moments:



    Though Ron Paul's placed in the top half.

    That is called a typo that I failed to catch. It should read "avoid", not "avid".

    And I consider you a libertarian of some sort, so thank you for voting.

    Sorry I didn't read the post first, and you worded the poll like anybody could take it.
