Libertarianism is a broad spectrum of political philosophies, each sharing the common overall priority of maximum limitation of government combined with optimum possible individual liberty. Its goals, though often varied in detail, prioritize freedom of speech and assembly, freedom of association, freedom to bear arms, freedom of and from religion, Press freedom, economic freedom, and freedom of ownership. It rejects the compulsions of socialism and communism so far as to uphold, at one end of the spectrum, private property, whether held on an individual or group basis. It promotes personal responsibility and self-organized charity, as opposed to welfare statism.
LoriKeet, I'm a firm supporter of 3rd party voting. You cannot let your fear of the candidate you don't like getting into office, or there will NEVER be a change in the voting/election process.
My old boss has the same philosphy, His goal was to get that candidate to (I think its ) 3% of the votes, then they get federal funding or something like that.
I think Colin Powell should run as an independent, if he did he could possibly get a good % of the vote and force a 3rd party platform to get the $$ and attention it deserves....
