Thread: Libertarian Thread

    Your Monday Message from the Libertarian Party:

    Dear friend,

    I was going to chat with today about what we really need to stimulate the economy.

    But then Nancy Pelosi had to go and say children are a burden and a lot of the poor ones should never have been born.

    In fact, she said it twice just in case you didnít hear her the first time.

    She was on ABCís This Week last Sunday, discussing the Democratsí $825 billion so-called ďstimulus package.Ē The conversation didnít really get interesting until host George Stephanopoulos asked Pelosi about some of the more ridiculous items in the package, like $200 million for contraception, and how that creates jobs.

    STEPHANOPOULOS: Hundreds of millions of dollars to expand family planning services. How is that stimulus?

    PELOSI: Well, the family planning services reduce cost. They reduce cost. The states are in terrible fiscal budget crises now and part of what we do for children's health, education and some of those elements are to help the states meet their financial needs. One of those - one of the initiatives you mentioned, the contraception, will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government.

    STEPHANOPOULOS: So no apologies for that?

    PELOSI: No apologies. No. We have to deal with the consequences of the downturn in our economy.

    So much for the notion that expanding government services fosters compassion.

    Private charities treat people with dignity and love because their funds are given to them out of a desire to help people.

    But as far as politicians like Nancy Pelosi are concerned, the poor and suffering are parasites feeding off a body designed to deliver votes and preserve political power.

    Their numbers must be reduced to keep the host healthy. The only question is how many can you cast off without losing the votes you need to win re-election.

    The lesson learned from Pelosiís momentary lapse of honesty is libertarianism is a philosophy rooted in compassion and respect for your fellow man. The voluntary exchange of goods, services and charitable giving creates a country where health care and education are shared for the right reasons Ė because we love and respect our neighbors.

    Compare that to the cold calculations of the government-sponsored welfare state. Born not out of compassion, but out of a desire to buy votes, the well-being of your neighbor becomes a mathematical calculation. How many can you serve without tapping out funds for people who can buy you even more votes? How many can you cast out into the street, or in Pelosiís case prevent from ever existing, before they stop voting for you?

    Iíve volunteered in homeless shelters, schools and my churchís food bank. Iíve never once heard anyone grumble about the number of people we help and propose we do something to prevent them from ever existing.

    So as you go out into the world this week, take a moment to share Pelosiís cold calculations with your friends. Would they rather a taxpayer-funded welfare state where the government begins controlling the population to keep the system from collapsing, or a community of volunteers who realize the poor and suffering are friends and neighbors in need of a little help?

    The choice is theirs at the ballot box.

    As I have explain many many time; the girl in question is not mine; can not be mine; impossible to be mine; I am very very rich and generous so I give that child many many thousands of dollars; but not my progeny. I have many many progeny all over the world. I am fantastic and successful lover. I love all my progeny even ones I never met. All life is beautiful and cherishable !!
