SHOCK: Have Liberals infiltrated the Libertarian Party and the Libertarian movement?!Submitted by grassleaves73 on Fri, 10/12/2012 - 19:48
Several Ron Paul supporters seem to forget the good doctor's stances on the following issues:
Pro-Life: The good doctor, while he believes this issue should be handled at the state level, also believes strongly that every conceived and unborn child should be guaranteed the right to life. After all, they are the most vulnerable and most precious of all life, being the future of our country and our world.
Marriage/Religious Freedom: He also believes that churches and individuals should be the one defining what marriage is and not government. If government recognizes and defines either traditional or gay marriage as legitimate, what is going to stop them from overriding our constitutional right to religious freedom and either force churches, religions or individuals to accept something that is against their religious beliefs or persecute them for failing to do so? Get Government out of that religious business altogether! That is what Dr. Paul has stated he believes.
Drugs: The good doctor believes government prohibition of things such as drugs and alcohol will never work, but has never advocated people to use substances which will harm them or to abuse those substances which can harm them if they use too much of them or for the wrong reasons. Rather he has advocated that people and their families should be responsible for determining what is helpful and hurtful to themselves.
With this in mind, is talk show host Jason Lewis correct in suggesting that certain brands of liberals have infiltrated the Libertarian Party and the Libertarian movement and so helped turn off mainstream America to their message as a whole?
Jason Lewis: Liberals have seeped into the Libertarian Party

“The problem with the Libertarian Party per se is they get sidetracked on a lot of social stuff” said Lewis
