Libertarianism To be more specific I understand the basics of the party. They're basically for lower taxes and more social freedom. I agree mostly with the social freedom side of their agenda. But seriously. Taxes are stealing? How does this make any sense? I have a friend whose is a libertarian and I just don't get him. He claims Libertarianism claims taxes is stealing. I guess this is a general question to libertarians and conservatives in general. If you want lower taxes, how do you propose we do it? I am all for cutting waste but where does that end? After a point what determines waste? Again, this is only from my friend and others on this forum and not the party as a whole, but I've heard argued getting rid of basic services like public schools. I don't understand how a party ever intends to get elected when their end goal is a large change of how our basic society functions. What do you guys think of libertarians?
