Libertarian. The word almost summons up images of a life spent in raucous debauchery. But that’s not true at all. Libertarianism is a political-social-economic ideology that believes in a small government presence. And no, that doesn’t mean that Libertarian is a kinder and gentler code-word for Anarchy either.

Within this blog category, we will discuss these issues and deal with the occasional pertinent current event.
