    Get rid of government – but 1st make me president
    By Ann Coulter – June 15, 2011
    http://www.wnd.com/?pageId=311469

    I consider all Republican debates time-fillers until New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie jumps in, but Monday night’s debate did crystallize for me why I dislike libertarians. (Except one, who is a friend of mine and not crazy.)

    They lure you in with talk of small government and then immediately start babbling about drug legalization or gay marriage.

    “Get the government out of it” is a good and constitutionally correct answer to many questions, but it’s not a one-size-fits-all answer to all questions.

    It was a good answer, for example, when libertarian Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, was asked about government assistance to private enterprise and government involvement in the housing market.

    But it’s a chicken-s–t, I-don’t-want-to-upset-my-video-store-clerk-base answer when it comes to gay marriage.

    • That intro is a bit misleading. I had to read the rest of the article to get the full picture.

      And for all those people out there who want to argue for the legalization of drugs based on the fact that the war on drugs has “failed,” I want even a sliver of evidence that the legalization of drugs would be successful, because once it’s legal, there’s no going back (case in point: prohibition, abortion). I’ve seen and heard too much about the impact of drug use, not just on the user and their immediate family and friends, but on entire communities and innocent bystanders to support legalizing an activity that CLEARLY does not just affect the person using. I don’t want to rant, so I’ll stop there…

      …or maybe not…

      We’re never going to be able to stop teen sex, so let’s give them some privacy…
      We’re never going to completely eliminate child abuse, so let’s teach them the safest way to hit their children…
      We’re never going to put an end to drunk driving, so let’s create special lanes just for them…
      We’re never going to eradicate theft, so let’s hold monthly giveaways so the thiefs only get half the good stuff…

        Re: “misleading”

        I just put up enough of an article to tease you into clicking on it. :o)

        And ITA with you about legalizing drugs. DUMB idea. Your list reminds me of something a niece said to me. “People are going to get abortions anyway, so what difference does it make if it’s legal?”

        I decided not to start a fight, but I was so tempted to reply, “People are going to rape and murder. Should we make those legal too?”

        • I didn’t mean to imply intentionally misleading on your part. I just wanted to encourage more people to read the rest. I found the comments to be particularly hateful. People get really bent out of shape when it comes to Ron Paul, I guess.

          I really do plan on writing more about this topic on my blog, you know, in all my spare time that I have. This concept comes up in counselling all the time. Some parents think that if they allow their underage children to drink at home that it will keep them from drinking elsewhere and encourage them to drink more responsibly. Time and time again studies have shown that just the opposite is true. Children whose parents allow them to drink end up drinking more and being less responsible than those who enforce the law and teach their children that they are not mature enough to drink. Unfortunately, encouraging bad behavior never results in a more postive outcome than teaching about right and wrong and facilitating ACTUAL responsibility (not to mention modelling responsiblity!). This is easily generalizable to the legalization of drugs. Besides, I don’t know a single person who makes good, responsible decisions when high on drugs. It just doesn’t happen.

          “Hey man…I know…we could like go raise some money to give to homeless people and then bake some cookies to take to the old folks home!”

          “No, man…let’s get a bunch of our friends together and volunteer to go pick up litter in the park!”

          “Yeah, and on the way there we could stop and pay Bobby back that money we owe him!”
