Reagan Conservatives, Natural Law and LibertariansSubmitted by BaneMaler on Thu, 05/10/2012 - 23:51
If any of you are in Missouri, I encourage you to take the time and check out a great local representative in the state Rep. Paul Curtman (R) of St. Louis. I have now heard from this gentleman, a U.S. Marine and a non-interventionist, a number of times and am excited that he is in the state house. I would love to see him seek higher office.
I have heard some of my good republican friends make some pretty disparaging comments about libertarians recently. Unable to determine if my friends were talking about people who belong to the libertarian party or people who simply identify with the libertarian philosophy, I asked them to clarify, and they couldn’t. This is disturbing. Unfortunately for conservatives in America, the word libertarian is misunderstood but only because we have accepted the term as defined by a society of lazy thinkers. Most people think that a libertarian is someone who belongs to the libertarian party or they think it’s a soft word for anarchists. The problem with this is that society has taken a word that identifies an important concept and twisted it so that popular culture defines and uses the word the wrong way.
