Libertarianism is a Flawed Philosophy

DeletedUser
stk1990

I'm basing my opening argument on your previous debates on this topic that went woefully unanswered... First off, I believe we need to properly define the libertarian viewpoint. Libertarians are interested in individual freedoms. At the heart of libertarianism is the idea that the individual is responsible for his life, liberty, and property, and that an external influence (government) is only needed with the individual might do something that would create an injustice toward another individu...

Libertarianism is a flawed philosophy.

If I'm not mistaken, libertarians want as little government as possible, the lowest taxes possible, and the most individual rights possible. Libertarians trust the free market to get things done.

The Right To Bare Arms

VinhVuong

I am a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment and right to bare arms. I believe that citizens should be armed ( who have a clean background and is a certified user). Many people who are murdered or raped and anything else (victims) are not armed.
