    PK and Henry,I am a libertarian bsacuee I'm for freedom, while you don't want to give the gays the freedom to marry, want to continue war mongering, and you don't want business's to have the freedon to give women an abortion if the market is there for it. Its not freedom if you don't.You Henry, are the odious religious right. The religious right is not for freedom from war, or control over one's own body, or freedom from religion even. Your philosphy is NOT libertarian Henry so don't even try saying you are. Libertarianism is a philosophy. The basic premise of libertarianism is that each individual should be free to do as he or she pleases so long as he or she does not harm others. In the libertarian view, societies and governments infringe on individual liberties whenever they tax wealth, create penalties for victimless crimes, or otherwise attempt to control or regulate individual conduct which harms or benefits no one except the individual who engages in it. – definition written by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (!), during the process of granting the Advocates for Self-Government status as a nonprofit educational organization Libertarianism is, as the name implies, the belief in liberty. Libertarians believe that each person owns his own life and property and has the right to make his own choices as to how he lives his life – as long as he simply respects the same right of others to do the same. Sharon Harris, President, Advocates for Self-Government“We want government to largely leave us alone, protect our personal security, but then to butt-out, leave us free to pursue our hopes and dreams, as long as we don't hurt anybody else.” – John Stossel, Host of “Stossel” on Fox Financial News Network, and author of Myths, Lies and Downright Stupidity“Libertarians believe in individual liberty, personal responsibility, and freedom from government – on all issues at all times… A libertarian is someone who thinks you should be free to live your life as you want to live it, not as [the President of the United States] thinks you should – who believes you should raise your children by your values, not those of some far-off bureaucrat who’s using your child as a pawn to create some brave new world – who thinks that, bsacuee you’re the one who gets up every day and goes to work, you should be free to keep every dollar you earn, to spend it, save it, give it away as you think best.”– Harry Browne (1933-2006),1996 and 2000 Libertarian Party Presidential Candidate and author of Liberty A-Z: 872 Libertarian Soundbites You Can Use Right Now! You are not for freedom Henry or PK, and that includes the left commentors like Jon and Entech that post here too.
