Minimum Government, Maximum Freedom

The Libertarian Party is a no brainer.

For the life of me, I don't get it. I simply don't understand why people can't understand that excessive government is the problem. And we have excessive government. Don't we all agree that we have too much government? Are there really people out there that think we need more government?

Our "two party" system is a travesty. Individually, these parties don't stand for anything anymore. It doesn't matter whether you steal my money and give it to the poor or deliver it to the elite. Once you've taken it from me, it's gone. But there is one thing both parties are very good at. Creating more government.

Without campaign reform, these two parties hold a monopoly. In fact, I don't think they'd survive any kind of anti-trust scrutiny as we apply it to business.

It's probably too late. The opportunity to stop them has long since passed. The elite have theirs, and now it's the welfare recipients turn to clamor for more. And when you take money from the people that do the work, and deliver it to the people that do nothing- you are near the end. Because the people with the capacity to work quit working (as you steal their work product) and the people with no desire to work continues to grow as they receive free money.

There was and still is only one solution. The Libertarian Party. Get government the hell out of our lives. Get rid of worthless agencies such as the "Energy Commission" which was created to solve our energy woes some forty years ago and has done absolutely nothing in that time. No measured results. Student loans? Where in the history of the U.S. or Constitution did it say that we'd make loans to people seeking an education? Who said that is a function of government? Should I dole out 200k so that some liberal arts major can get a sociology degree and then default on the loan? Insanity. Government run amok.

A flat tax. No accountants, no 2500 page tax code, no mortgage interest tax break for the ultra rich to build themselves castles. In fact, our entire tax code is the poster child for government gone wild. In a drunken stupor, most of us couldn't devise anything so unfair, complex, and ridiculously stupid as our current tax code. It absolutely encourages cheating. In fact, I believe one day in an enlightened world if we manage to survive, they will show kids in a history class the tax code as it exists today. The kids will roar with laughter. That was the law?

Identifying government as our problem is easy. The real problem is stripping the two parties that support this government waste- of their power. That's the issue. As long as the sheep are convinced that any vote for a third party is a wasted vote, we'll never be able to stop this.

Ever.
