Vote Libertarian to uphold constitutional valuesSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Sun, 07/15/2012 - 14:09
Connecticut is nicknamed The Constitution State. We get our name due to our strong sense of Constitutional values. We support a small government that does not overstep its bounds. We oppose illegal wars. We protect civil liberties free from government oppression. This is exemplified in our support for marriage equality, and more recently, for medical marijuana. Connecticut is, and always has been, a state that demands government act within its Constitutional bounds.
So, why do we keep voting in big government politicians who egregiously violate our nation's Constitution? President Obama, who the state overwhelmingly supported in 2008, unconstitutionally authorized indefinite detentions. He supported multiple illegal wars and authorized the individual healthcare mandate.
