Time for a Libertarian Approach

The structure of government needs to better reflect the libertarian intent of the Framers, an intent that if properly applied can result in even greater innovation for problem solving. The current two-party system stifles creativity in public policy. Unless you have voices that say, “let’s focus on solving a problem” versus “let’s see how many football points we can score by blaming the guy across the aisle”, the country will become not only fiscally bankrupt, but socially bankrupt as well.

One Response to Time for a Libertarian Approach

    It’s not necessarily the two party system. We’ve had this for a long time. Only recently have positions hardened so that compromise is unthinkable.

    You’re right about “let’s focus on solving a problem”. However, part of the problem is agreeing on the problem first, then on the approach to the solution. Some appear to be mostly concerned about having health care for all (Medicare, Medicaid, Affordable Care Act), while others seem to be mostly concerned about deficits, for example. Some think government is too big, others think we need more government protection, hence “bigger” government. There are big differences in the world views of the various factions. Some think that man is ultimately responsible only to himself, while others beiieve we are all responsible for each other.

    Until these differences are reconciled, it will be very difficult to find any kind of compromise.
