Open Letter to Jon Stossel and Libertarians

I have a number of Libertarian friends.  Some of you I have worked with for a long time, others I have become close to, and the rest, well, I just know you guys & gals.  The one thing I have in common with all of you is our love for life, including the unborn.  This is something you don’t have in common with your party.  And that’s not all.

Jon Stossel, you are typical of what I percieve to be the problem with Libertarians.  It comes down to bascially this, you’re all about legalizing drugs, promoting isolationism, opposing big government, living in denial and protecting your own money.

I took the test on the Libertarian website at http://www.lp.org/.  It’s no surprise I came out as a conservative.  They describe me this way:

Conservatives tend to favor economic freedom, but frequently support laws to restrict personal behavior that violates “traditional values.” They oppose excessive government control of business, while endorsing government action to defend morality and the traditional family structure. Conservatives usually support a strong military, oppose bureaucracy and high taxes, favor a free-market economy, and endorse strong law enforcement.

How do you score as a Libertarian?  You will get 100% if you answer “Agree” to all of these:

Government should not censor speech, press, media, or internet.
Military service should be voluntary. There should be no draft.
There should be no laws regarding sex for consenting adults.
Repeal laws prohibiting adult possession and use of drugs.
There should be no National ID card.
End “corporate welfare.” No government handouts to business.
End government barriers to international free trade.
Let people control their own retirement; privatize Social Security.
Replace government welfare with private charity.
Cut taxes and government spending by 50% or more.

Seriously?  You don’t ever think there should be a draft?  Not even if there was a global war?  Do you really think we could get all the people we need just through the volunteer system?  Libertarians didn’t want us to go to WWII or WW1 either because they weren’t a “direct threat” to America.

No laws regarding sex?  How about consenting adults with sheep?

No laws for drugs?  You are out of your minds…no, you’re high!  With millions of Americans smoking legal pot, how do you propose we test them without a blood test when they are driving cars?  Ask them if they want some Cheetos?

Cut taxes?  Do you really want to cut all government spending by 50%?  No analysis of how that would happen…just cut the military by 50%?

Now let’s get to some real issues, which Libertarians completely ignore (support) so that they can live in their world of bliss.

Abortion - Over one million people killed in America by their mothers.
Embryonic stem cell and other human killing research - Unknown numbers of people killed because they weren’t “wanted” after in vitro fertilization.
Homosexuals in the Boy Scouts and the military and transexual leaders in the Boy Scouts - Not my idea of “male” role models for my kids.
Euthanasia - If you’re too old or disabled and can’t defend yourself from Libertarians or liberals, good luck

Wait a minute…what’s up?  Their own description on their site reads that Libertarians believe:

Libertarians support maximum liberty in both personal and economic matters. They advocate a much smaller government; one that is limited to protecting individuals from coercion and violence. Libertarians tend to embrace individual responsibility, oppose government bureaucracy and taxes, promote private charity, tolerate diverse lifestyles, support the free market, and defend civil liberties.

You’ve got to be kidding me…maximum liberty and defend civil liberties?  Yeah, for yourselves, not anyone else, like Terri Schiavo maybe?

Let’s look at how Libertarians feel about abortion, first from their own website:

1.4 Abortion

Recognizing that abortion is a sensitive issue and that people can hold good-faith views on all sides, we believe that government should be kept out of the matter, leaving the question to each person for their conscientious consideration.

Ok how about murder or rape?  can people “hold good-faith views on all sides” on those topics?  I don’t think so.

Now let’s look at how On The Issues has tracked them on Libertarian “issues”

Abortion:

Government should be kept out of the matter of abortion. (May 2008)
Abortion is a woman’s choice and does not concern the state. (Jul 2000)

Civil Rights

Support individual’s right to choose, even if we disapprove. (May 2008)
Repeal all laws against homosexuality. (Jul 2000)
Right to complete freedom of expression includes pornography. (Jul 2000)
Redress the wrongs of the U.S. towards the Indians. (Jul 2000)

Crime

Three Strikes approach is illusory & dangerous. (Nov 2000)
Omnibus Crime Bill, including death penalty, has failed. (Nov 2000)
Allow drugs, alcohol, prostitution, gambling, and suicide. (Jul 2000)
Strengthen, not reduce, the rights of the accused. (Jul 2000)
Hate crimes are used to punish blacks. (Feb 2000)

Foreign Policy

No U.S. intervention in the affairs of other countries. (Jul 2000)

Reduce defense spending by half; just defend the US. (Nov 2000)
Build missile defense privately, with federal “reward”. (Nov 2000)
Oppose any form of national service. (Jul 2000)
Eliminate nuclear weapons & bring all U.S. troops home. (Jul 2000)
Support resistance to the draft. (Aug 1981)

Immigration

Eliminate all restrictions on immigration. (Jul 2000)

What?  “Eliminate all restrictions on immigration?” We already do that, and welcome to MexAmerica!  I have no problem with legal immigration, but why have we allowed 10s of millions of Latinos to flow into America illegally?  There are 10s of millions of hard working Africans, Pols, Ukrainians, Russians, Slovakians & so on who have been trying to get here LEGALLY for years and years.  What about them?

Let’s sum up Libertarian “values”.  There aren’t many.  As a party, you guys value money, your own private lives and everything else is just a free-for-all.  That’s very, very sad.

Terri Schiavo, a girl who was loved by her family and millions of others who came to know her during her illegal trial, was publicly executed in the most horrific manner possible.  Starvation and dehydration.  Over 1 million people are killed in the womb every year by their mothers through abortion.  We can’t imagine how many people are slaughtered by human killing research.  The best you can do is come up with on human rights is to “redress the rights of the Indians”?  Really?

For those of you who missed the show where Stossel invited Glenn Beck & Pat Buchanan, you’re got to look it up.  First of all, Beck gave a look to Stossel that said something like “wow, you’re a moron”.  I’m sure Pat Buchanan wanted to punch Stossel.  Stossel’s smart-alec tone & rude approach to make himself seem like a smart guy will most likely be reasons why they will never do his show again.

If you are Libertarian and pro-life, well, quit your party, because they aren’t going to change.  It would be the same as being pro-Jew and being a member of the Nazi party.  And don’t bring up Ron Paul.  He doesn’t want to end abortion, he wants to turn it over to the states because he believes it isn’t a federal issue.  That would not end abortion in this country and you know it.

Libertarian friends.  Come on, you can’t be serious.  I’m not saying Republicans are the answer, but the Libertarian party is so far from the answer they don’t even cross the threshold of a party we should be considering.
