Authoritarian or Libertarian – our choice

As we ponder the possibilities of being thrust into another General Election, the mainstream parties all seem to be spouting the same basic policies, the same answers and the same gravy train, the one rushing to take us to the great Authoritarian Empire known as Europe.

When we study closely the policies of the 3 main parties, irrespective of what we hear from individuals at conference, we see that the primary concerns of these parties is, Terror, Security, Health, Education, Economy, Policing, Environment and Immigration.

Listen to any mainstream politician, the answers are all the same, or as near as damn it. More regulation, more taxation, more control. Ever bigger government to oversee and supervise every aspect of our lives, backed up by billions of pounds worth of technology and an army of snotty nosed local officials who want to ban everything, criminalise everyone, charge for everything and tax everything they can get away with.

The people have been forgotten. We are in the way, we are a nuisance, clearly evident in the debate over the EU Constitutional Treaty. The people are just the milch cow for more and more taxation.

These policies are right in as much as its what the people want discussing, but the answers are wrong.
We don't want bigger government, we don't want more intrusive government, we don't want government control over everything.

So when we consider who to vote for in any new election, think carefully, because it may be the last election this country ever sees.

The choices are no longer between Tories and Labour, perhaps with a protest vote for the LibDems, because they have all melded into a mirror image of each other.

Are you not sick of being told how you can live, what you can eat, what you can watch, what you can say and be ignored when you want to respond. That is Authoritarianism.

It has now become a straight forward fight, a fight between bigger and more authoritarian government, or government being put back in its place whereby they work for the people, where they govern over things that matter at a high level such as defence, the economy and a national health service, but in every other way butt out of our lives.

We only have 2 clear choices in politics today, between being governed or being ruled, which means:

Authoritarianism or Libertarianism.

Virtually all other political talk is a diversion, smoke and mirrors to hide the real politics.

Don't understand the difference?
For Authoritarian values see 2010, or see the values of the Libertarian in a nice video format


Perhaps we could start with a new Bill of Rights, framed along Libertarian lines.

Watch out for news of the new Libertarian Party.
