Hey everyone. Please be informed on the party's positions before commenting. I am a libertarian myself. But sometimes I do run into problems. Such as, I believe it is a persons right to take their own life. It is none of my business and if they feel that way so be it. For instance according to my stance Dr. Kavorkian should not have been punished for his actions of assisted suicide. But what would happen in a world where he was not punishd but let's say that someone who was mentally unstable came into the Dr's office and the doc just complied with his task and assisted in his death. Than what would happen? Or what if someone was drunk or mentally incapable of understanding a written contract between two adults that suggested that the husband could beat and rape the wife whenever he wanted? If she signed the contract but than it was found out she was not mentally stable? Who would step in and intervene in this type of situation?
Also if a libertarian could explain to me what the parties position is on going after terrorists who attacked us on 9/11? Would this mean going after the Saudi's since that is where most of them were from? Or would we just sit back and tighten our own borders in hopes of preventing them from attacking us here? I know the Iraq and Afganistan war is not supported at least according to our libertarian homepage. I also know that certain libertarians are split on the war in Afgahnistan not Iraq.
I also know that we only had .5 percent of the Nations vote. Is it even remotely possible we will ever win? Or see our policies take effect? Even in the likes of someone like Ron Paul running as a repub? Anyone know how many votes he garnered? Sometimes it is very depressing to be the minority. Makes me feel hopeless.
