Where You're Normal By Comparison






"A libertarian is a person who believes that no one has the right, under any circumstances, to initiate force against another human being, or to advocate or delegate its initiation. Those who act consistently with this principle are libertarians, whether they realize it or not. Those who fail to act consistently with it are not libertarians, regardless of what they may claim."

We oppose unprovoked aggression. We promote self-responsibility and personal freedom. No one has the right to initiate force on another human being... Does that mean we're passifists, who won't defend ourselves if someone attacks us? No. We oppose the initiation of force, not retaliatory force. We definately have the right to defend ourselves. It's muggers, rapists, burglars, car-jackers, terrorists, and pickpocketers that initiate force on others. If force is the only way to defend yourself from or stop these criminals, then so be it. As long as you are not the initiator.

I am a libertarian. Some may call me an Anarchist, an idealist, a whacko, or a gun nut. I can live with that. But I'm a decent person who stands by my convictions... Most regard Libertarianism as a political stance, and to some degree it is. But it's more than that. It's a philosophy, it's morality, it's a way of life. Its application to politics is purely a side effect, most likely caused by politicians' lack of conscience, principles and morals.

Put another way, being libertarian means you don't care what anybody else does with their life as long as what they do doesn't harm anyone else. You leave me alone, I'll leave you alone. We stay out of eachother's way. Being a libertarian means you believe in personal freedom and self responsibility. You are free to make your own choices regarding your life, your body and your property. But you are also held accountable for the consiquences of your actions. No one is responsible for anyone or anything else unless they explicitly sign up for it. I believe everyone should be free -- free to be healthily, free to polute their body, free to succees, free to fail, free to live, free to die.

I hate politics. I always have. I have no interest in them whatsoever. Politics and politicians disgust me, which is exactly why I choose to pay attention to them. I will no longer stand idly by while they steal from us, lie to us, take away our freedom and outlaw tools that are ideal for defending ourselves.

Freedom Quote of the Day

"[The] governor [is] constitutionally the commander of the militia of the State, that is to say, of every man in it able to bear arms." - Thomas Jefferson to A. L. C. Destutt de Tracy, 1811

To give you an idea of some of the political application of our philosophy, I'll list some of the things we tend to believe in. But to gain a better understanding, you should really read the Party Platform.

We oppose:

  • prohibition and the "War On Drugs"
  • taxes
  • censorship
  • government intervention
  • subsidies, tax floors & tax ceilings
  • punishing those accused of committing victimless 'crimes'
  • tax-funded mandated public school
  • tax-funded involuntary social security
  • the FDA

We support:

  • personal freedom
  • self responsibility
  • the free market
  • voluntary charity in place of stealing money from one group to give to another
  • repeal of all laws restricting the rights to buy, sell, own or carry a gun (or any weapon, for that matter).
  • isolationism (i.e. an end to being the world's police)
  • replacing the federal armed forces with voluntary militias
  • private ownership

Here's some political cartoons I've drawn:
