your statement of intent
« on: September 11, 2005, 10:46:34 pm »

i must say that i agree with your statement of intent.

the maximum role of civil gov. should be to protect: property, liberty, life.
so is this going to always be your intent collectively?  are any persons who have joined the project, or
helped create the project wanting to change the statement of intent?  just curious.

also, whenever i think liberatarian an image comes to mind of a dude smoking a joint demanding abortion rights.  how accurate is this stereotype.  one of my biggest problems with LEGALIZING drugs is that the government would tax the use of drugs.  this idea is down right sick in my opinion.  should be delegal not legal.

Not that part of it. We are discussing whether to change the wait-until-20,000-to-move element.

What do you mean by "delegal"?

jason,

i mean that outside of age of consent and public use issues, the gov. shouldn't regulate narcotics
including the sale, distribution, etc...  and why should the gov. care if 2 consenting adults wish to destroy their lives?  but for the gov. to be financed from drug use is not a good idea in my opinion.

Cheesy, you sound very libertarian (you possess rational thinking skills).

The stereotype you mentioned is just one of the many made to show libertarians as all the "bad" parts of liberty.
Libertarians are anything and everything, and most important they ARE FINE WITH THAT.
If someone wants to be a pothead, libertarians don't mind.
If someone wants to be a good Christian and pray every night, libertarians don't mind.
If someone wants to be a half-eaten sandwich, libertarians don't mind.

Libertarians believe everyone should govern themselves, the only limit being to respect the equal rights of others.

Oh, I see; that makes sense. I think regulating and taxing drugs should be a good first step, but ultimately I favor a free market in drugs for adults (not children).
