Why I am a Libertarian.
I have been a Republican for so long. Neo Conservative Bush backing and all that jazz. I didn’t like Obama and I like him even less now. But it wasn’t till maybe about 2003 of years ago that I became so interested in politics. The main issue to me was the issue of abortion. I am staunchly pro life. I will give my life to ending abortion in America. Seeing as how the majority of Republicans are conservative and pro life I decided to latch on to the bandwagon. Being from Mississippi I actively campaigned for Hayley Barbour to be elected Governor. I also have in my possession a letter from G.W. Bush commending me for getting him re-elected in 2004 (which wasn’t hard in my opinion).
So why the sudden switch. One thing I was sick of while Bush was in office was the underhanded tactics that Democrats were playing against Bush. The only thing that seemed to unite that party was their undying hatred for (then) President Bush. Now I see that now the only thing uniting the GOP is their undying hatred for Obama and they’re playing the same political game to get Obama out of office or paint him a traitor to America. To be honest I’m fed up with both parties, just give me the drinks and I’ll just go home.
Democrats and Republicans will sacrifice principle as long as it’s to their advantage. They waste American tax dollars by pouring them into government programs and if the money isn’t there they use the Federal Reserve to create the money. Now I’m not in favor of eliminating government programs like my fellow Libertarians, but I am in favor of restructuring and restrictions placed on government programs to prevent others from cheating the system.
I remain pro life and desire to see Planned Parenthood run into the ground and crashing and burning like the worthless entity that it is. I stand in favor of House Resolution 1207 and to see the Federal Reserve audited and eventually shut down to prevent the inflation and devaluing of my hard earned money.
As far as the life issue is, I’ve noticed that there are Pro Life Democrats and Pro Choice Republicans and there are those on both sides of the fence in the Libertarian Party. It’s the issue of how our money is being handled. My principles are the same and my convictions are the same.
And so now I am a Libertarian.
