I am proud to say that my views on religion and morality are
very similar to those of the men who signed the Declaration of
Independence and the Constitution. My views on sexual morality are
the views of the vast majority of civilized men over the last six
Where I part company with the "Religious Right" and
traditional conservatives is my response to those who sin.
I do not believe in confiscating the property
of people who are sexually immoral. I do not believe in incarcerating
people who are sexually immoral in small jail cells with
psychopaths to be beaten and sodomized. I do not believe in capital
In short, while I agree with the moral views of America's
Founding Fathers, I do not agree with their penal
Liberty Leads to Morality
"Social Conservatives" want to guard marriage and
prevent sexual immorality. So do I. I'll say something that most
candidates would never say: I want to eradicate homosexuality,
adultery, and prostitution. I do not believe that imprisoning
homosexuals or executing
adulterers is the best way to eradicate these sins. I believe the
best way to eradicate sexual immorality is to adopt the entire
libertarian policy package. Key examples:
- The separation of school and state
Modern secular compulsory government monopoly schools oppose
"the Laws of Nature and
of Nature's God"
and promote sexual immorality.
The vast majority of parents do not want their children
experimenting with prostitution or homosexuality.
Liberty means parents could choose the kinds of
schools they want; the schools that reinforce their values.
- A foreign policy based on America as a City
upon a Hill, rather than imperialist
is anti-family. More.
- "The State" as a cultural institution is organized
It says, "If you can't persuade people to
give you what you want, use force."
Surveys reveal surprisingly large percentages of under-30
boys/men who believe they have the right to get what they want
if they pay for dinner.
- The libertarian philosophy is that you must compete
by serving the consumer.
The worldview of the state is: "We are strong. We are #1.
We are entitled
to what we want."
In the absence of an institution based on compulsion, coercion,
and the initiation of force, a Free Market will rise to higher
levels of morality. The truth wins in the end. Virtue
is more competitive than selfishness, in the long run.
In short, "Legalize"
the 3 H's!

I do not necessarily endorse their legislative proposals, but I
often agree with their diagnosis of the problem.
