The Libertarian Party

Tom Evslin tracked back to me with his excellent follow up post on legalizing drugs.

In that post, he linked to The Libertarian Party’s website.

So I’ve been aware of The Libertarian Party since I began to focus on politics as a teenager, but I never really paid any attention to them.

After spending some time on the website, I’d have to say that if they were a viable alternative, I’d have to take them pretty seriously.

I don’t totally agree with their views on taxation and social security.

And I don’t totally agree with their views on foriegn policy.

And I definitely don’t agree with their position on guns.

But I believe that The Libertarians have got a lot of things right.

The Democrats should look their way in trying to figure out what a new Democratic party should look like.
