The Anti-Libertarian President

Remember how I was wondering what the hell was happening with my Netflix envelopes? Maybe I now know.

The President asserted his new authority when he signed a postal reform bill into law on Dec. 20. Bush then issued a "signing statement" that declared his right to open people's mail under emergency conditions.

My question is to all those "libertarians" who continue to support this president. Exactly how far will go to compromise your ideological soul before finally admitting President Bush is possibly the most anti-libertarian President in history? At least I will still be able to chuckle when someone says, "I'm a libertarian but I voted for Bush and would again".

Most Libertarians are Republicans who smoke dope. Sad but true. How could a Libertarian possibly support a war based on big government lies? Answer: it's not possible.

The Libertarian Party has never and will never support the Iraq conflict. We opposed it when the Republicans supported it. We opposed it when the Democrats supported it. We oppose it now.

As for smoking dope, ask yourself this question: Is it safe to assume that anyone who supports the freedom of Buddhists to practice their faith is a Buddhist?

Libertarians oppose the insane "war on drugs", because it has created a crime wave the like of which has not been seen since Prohibition, has increased the size and cost of government, has served as an excuse for the shredding of the Bill of Rights (The War on Terror tyrannies would never have been accepted if the War on Drugs tyrannies had not warmed up the audience), and lastly, because your body is your property: therefore what you do with it is your business, not mine, not the Nurse Ratchet State.
