This is the official meetup for the Libertarian Party of Santa Clara County.
We are Banishing Force and Fraud from Public Life
Freedom means both social and economic.
The Left believes in social, but not economic freedom. We ask, "Why does a person's 'Right to Choose' stop at abortion?" It should encompass all of your life, as long as you don't violate the rights of another. Taxing to re-distribute wealth is not a legitimate government function. Social engineering is evil.
The Right believes in economic, but not social freedom. We ask, "What makes that different than the crushing theocracies we see in the Middle East, or the communist regimes in Eastern Europe and China?" Freedom means separation of church and state, separation of school and state, indeed separation of everything from state, except legitimate public safety and defense functions. Legislating morality is evil.
Before the so-called Progressives subverted the term, Liberal used to mean social, and economic, and political, and religious, and educational, and any other kind of freedom. We think a return to this classic liberalism is overdue.
Our website is scclp.org. Come join the new American Revolution.
