When I discovered the OLP it was an epiphany. I am 60 now and hadn't felt such a rush since my first love. As I researched further the shine began to come off the apple. When I look back at my first love I now sing to myself, "she ain't pretty she just looks that way." To be brutally concise I feel libertarians disdain for big government power is to be applauded but they don't research the consequences of transferring that power to the private sector.
People seek peace, privacy, property and prosperity by freely associating into communities for protection in numbers. Governments are created by people to provide protection from criminals who agress against people, peace, privacy, property and prosperity. Poltical parties are created by people to provide protection from government coruption. The Libertarian Party seeks willing voting party members to achieve greater protection in numbers against government coruption.
I am pleased to announce that I have accepted my responsibility to act and perform the function of the Eastern Ontario Regional Coordinated for the Ontario Libertarian Party. My offer is to volunteer some time, energy and effort when available to help promote, encourage and develop individual associations with our Libertarian Party. All we can do is offer access to information and permit individuals to inform and convince themselves of the benefits of membership.
Say “NO” to Grandview "traffic intensification"
HELLO fellow Grandview home-owners and concerned community members.
I personally do not oppose taxes.
What I oppose is excessive taxation and the resulting excessive concentrations of power that have accumulated with the steady growth of the state over my lifetime and beyond.
You may have heard it said that libertarians agree on 95% of all issues, but fight tooth-and-nail over the remaining 5% (or is it 99% and 1%?). Its true, and I'm not the first to say that. However, the bickering and arguments over that 5% is often tedious, nit-picky, divisive and for me tiresome. Spend a few minutes in a libertarian Facebook discussion and you'll see libertarians are rarely of one mind.
The term ‘productivity’ is often assumed to apply mainly to labour.
The term ‘capital’ appears synonymous with “investments made”.
The time has come to repeal the legislation that mandates all Ontario teachers be a union member. Each teacher must be empowered with the right to choose whether or not to be associated in any manner whatsoever with a union. This right is the real basis of democracy but, somewhere in our political past, taken from our teachers and replaced by Union organizations that have lost their moral compass and taken actions and positions that now reflects badly on the teaching profession as a whole.
The recent teachers strikes have showcased a societal drama about pitting employees against employers in order to strike an “acceptable agreement” between both parties concerning costs and compensation. Throughout this drama, however, there has been one “party” conspicuously absent at the “negotiating table” - - - our children.
