No, I do not think any political leaning, or party can be defined quite that simplistically.
Always makes me think of Librarians or something. Canadians don't use that word.
Yes and no..
Really the Platform itself hasn’t changed much since 1972. Trust me I’m one to know. Worth reading before generalizing. A whole lot of thought went into it. David Nolan and Pipp Boyls were attempting to create a party of self determination and common sense.
In addition to that the Original LP Platform was written by my Father with the help of my mother on my kitchen table 2 years before I was born. If that takes away my anonymity on this site... So be it. But somebody would have to do some serious research. :)
promotes civil liberties, ... The party generally promotes a classical liberal platform, in contrast to the .... A modern version of the Libertarian porcupine, styled after the original by Kevin Breen .... The Statement of Principles was written by John Hospers. I looked it up - before this I never really knew what libertarians were about
I think these two ideas are not related to each other at all.
Libertarians are people who expect to drive on roads, VA benefits, and other services but don't want to pay taxes which support them
wrong, did you know before taxes roads where still paid for? businesses need business and employees they will pay for roads and maintain them, government screws everythign they touch up
The government is for the people,by the people. Whatever happens is because Voters allow it to happen. Trump for example. "businesses need business and employees they will pay for roads and maintain them" What exactly does that mean? What about roads where there are no businesses? That's a ludicrous statement given that the rhe Gov has done a might fine job creating the Road & Highway systems
But the government still screws up everything they touch and waste vast amounts of tax payer money in the process so they or their buddies can line their pockets with more money.
I’m with Piper on this one.
That's completely different.
