Constitutionalism Vs. LibertarianismSubmitted by RJMooreII on Thu, 02/10/2011 - 04:12
I am a huge fan of the Judge and DVR every episode of Freedom Watch. However, I think that his views on the Constitution are not necessarily correct.
It is arguable that the Constitution is anti-libertarian - after all, it was written by East Coast elites, passed illegally, supported by the Mercantalist-Centralist Federalists and sponsored by banksters. The Judge has a libertarian interpretation of the Constitution, but that doesn't make it the correct one.
Now, as I reject the government and Constitution altogether I think that, if we are going to bother with it, we should give it a libertarian spin wherever possible. But whether it is historically and legally correct is unlikely. Even if the USG is violating the Constiution that does not mean the correct interpretation is a libertarian one. After all, the classical liberals were not libertarians.
