What is the Liberty Position?

The liberty position maintains that respect for individual rights is the essential precondition for a free, peaceful and prosperous world – treat others as though you would like to be treated. To believe in liberty is not to believe in any particular social and economic outcome. It is to trust in the spontaneous order that […]

HEALTH CARE

The key to effective and efficient medical care is the doctor-patient relationship yet federal bureaucrats continue to believe that their one-size-fits-all policies will lower costs, increase access, and cure an ailing industry. Instead, excessive regulation, immoral mandates, and short-sighted incentives have created a system where no one is happy, doctors pass quickly from one patient […]

NATIONAL DEFENSE

Today, hundreds of thousands of our fighting men and women have been stretched thin all across the globe in over 135 countries – often without a clear mission, any sense of what defines victory, or the knowledge of when they’ll be permanently reunited with their families. Acting as the world’s policeman and nation-building weakens our […]

TAXATION

An income tax is the most degrading and totalitarian of all possible taxes. Its implementation wrongly suggests that the government owns the lives and labor of the citizens it is supposed to represent. Tellingly, “a heavy progressive or graduated income tax” is Plank #2 of the Communist Manifesto (http://www.criminalgovernment.com/docs/planks.html), which was written by Karl Marx […]

ENERGY

Our government saves the oil companies over $4 billion a year through tax breaks and subsidies. (http://www.usatoday.com/money/industries/energy/2011-05-12-oil-industry-tax-breaks_n.htm). As long as the big oil companies continue to line the pockets of their congressional friends, no one will fight for the preservation of our environment or for alternative green forms of energy that will stop destroying our […]

DRUGS

I think we can all agree that using drugs recreationally can be dangerous and harmful to your health. So can eating fast foods or not getting enough sleep or exercise, but we would be outraged if the government tried to regulate how much sleep we got or how many calories we consume each day. The […]

EDUCATION

The department of education is a total failure. Talk to most teachers and they will agree. In the current system administrators are more focused on satisfying federal mandates, retaining funding and trying not to get sued, while teachers are jumping through hoops, trying to serve up a one size fits all education for their students.
