Glenn Beck, in his bitterness over Trump, is now pushing his followers and the #NeverTrump folks to go Libertarian this election. Beck claimed Trump was unfit for the presidency because of his lack of moral values, but now Beck is pushing the Libertarian party which is known for pro-choice, pro legalized drugs, pro legalization of prostitution, pro gay marriage, etc.
Will Beck's sheeple follow his lead this time, or will he be left crying, rolling his face in crushed Cheetos again?
Your oversimplification of the Libertarian Party is why I don't refer to myself as a Libertarian.
I have libertarian beliefs, but they don't line up with Gary Johnson on abortion or open borders.
I also have problems with the track record of Trump on abortion and the 2nd amendment. I simply do not believe his positions have fundamentally changed.
I'm not oversimplifying the Libertarian Party. They start with a good premise of limited government, then bastardize it with a Laissez-faire, let it ride, let go, let them do it attitude on social issues. Their leading candidate is typical Libertarian - pro choice, pro legalizing all drugs starting with marijuana as a point of departure, pro gay marriage, pro legalization of prostitution. Not only that, he's said in the past he's for wide open borders and that both state and the federal government should share the expenses of this flood of people coming in. Glenn Beck (and others) thumb their snooty noses at Donald Trump while pushing the Libertarian party's agenda while telling others they're not true conservatives or true Christians for not following their endorsements. Disgusting.
As for not trusting Trump on the 2nd Amendment, that's your deal. The NRA believes him. They've endorsed him.
As for not trusting Trump on abortion, many staunch pro-life groups are trusting him.
Yes, oversimplification. There are many libertarians out there like Ron and Rand Paul who are pro life.
And the line in the sand on who is a true conservative isn't Glenn Beck. It's me.
Compared to me, Jaime is a communist.
Pro life Libertarians are the exception to the rule, not the rule.
Ron Paul is not even running. He's 80 years old, so I don't think there's a big chance of him running in the future. Rand Paul holds Libertarian beliefs on some of these same social issues, even though he does claim to be pro-life. Rare in Libertarian circles.
The Libertarian Party is inconsistent. They say the government should stay out of all personal business, so that's why they're for legalization of drugs and prostitution. At the same time, they say drug use (even heroin and meth) and prostitution should be "safe" and regulated so it stays "safe." Well...who regulates all the shooting up and ****ing? The government, that's who.
Sorry, but the Libertarian Party is not for me. I'm for less government, but at the same time, I'm not ready to legalize the aforementioned sins putting the government in charge of keeping it all "safe" for us.
