“Libertarian” Party Joins the Old Parties?

By Nathan Barton

Thanks to the folks over at JPFO for this: Bullets First bluntly reports VP candidate William Weld’s interview on REVOLT TV: Libertarian VP Wants to Ban Guns; Rifles are “Weapons of Mass Destruction.”

Except that Bullets First is WRONG: With these positions, William Weld has violated any claim to be ANY kind of Libertarian or libertarian. I don’t know if the LP still requires even their nominees to sign the “Pledge” any more, but ANY person who says that accused people should be stripped of fundamental, God-given rights is committing an act of aggression and calling for tens of thousands, even millions, of acts of aggression.

I am amazed that the current cabal at JFPO is even talking about Weld. Of course, the apparachiks in the National LP will try and tapdance around this guy. One more proof that electoral politics is a total sham as far as human liberty is concerned.

I suppose it can be claimed (and no doubt will be, by some apologists) that Weld is waging some kind of stealth campaign and doesn’t really believe what he is saying. So instead, he is a liar? And that is better?

The only good human government is one you read about in history, which does not exist anymore. Even Trump talks a better line than this thug.

Mama’s Note: The original libertarian oath was to the non-aggression principle”

No human being has the right, under any circumstances, to initiate force against another human being, nor to delegate such initiation of force.

I’m not sure any present day “Libertarians” understand this, even if they have managed to read it once or twice.

    All of you are SOOOOO right. The LP has gone over the rails. Will there be help for “We the People”??


    • MamaLiberty says:

      We each must help ourselves, our families and our voluntary community – as self owning individuals. There is no such thing as “we the people” as a universal collective all wanting the same thing, and no help from the non-voluntary government ever.


  2. Sam Boes says:

    Whatever form the “oath” or “pledge” or ZAP or NAP or Golden Rule takes, it is clear that William Weld has NO intent to follow that, or anything close to it. And it is clear that the Libertarian Party intends to take no action to disavow him. A Johnson-Weld Administration would be nothing but Hillary or Donald Lite.


    • MamaLiberty says:

      I’m afraid you are right, Sam. The problem is that human beings are not competent to rule/control anyone but themselves and their families, often barely even that. Voluntary association and cooperation, the end result of the golden rule/the non aggression principle, is the only way for humans to live in peace and prosperity.
