This definition of Libertarian does not intend to address the metaphysical or philosophical argument supporting free will against the notions of determinism or pre-determinism. This treatment restricts itself to the Libertarian political – economic movement in contemporary American politics.
The nutshell definition of Libertarianism is the political philosophy or ideology promoting the notion of freedom of thought and speech. The Libertarian maintains that a person is the absolute owner of his own life, and that he should be free to do whatever he wishes with his person or his property, provided that he allows all others the exact same freedom, liberty and ultimate authority over their own persons and their own private property.
Libertarianism involves a strong doctrine emphasizing individual liberty over government oversight, scope and regulation, not only in personal behavior matters but in the larger economy. Libertarianism emphasizes free markets and a private economy over government planned or controlled markets. This means a belief in reduced government and expanded individual liberty.
So, the current, American political definition of Libertarian is, one who advocates individual liberty, meaning a reduced or eliminated government regulatory role in matters of personal behavior and the larger national economy, so long as no one else’s rights are violated or their liberty is threatened by his actions or inactions. Libertarianism, by definition, does not consider or even address social constraints or limitations related to morality, because accepting any over-all social moral code means applying force against citizens, and since only government may apply such force it would grant too much power to the state.
Now, all of that is highly commendable as some conservative American ideals (among others) that guide our American political direction. However, what this Libertarian idealism promotes by default is a sense of Practical Atheism over any other common sense of moral norms held by the population. A common morality – a sense of knowing right from wrong held in common – is and always has been necessary for any family, any group, any people or any nation as a foundation for their actual law, or any official set of rules by which all agree to live and abide.
Practical atheism. A Practical Atheist is one who, while perhaps not being an actual atheist, behaves precisely as though he were an atheist, with no consideration for the law of God or the will of God. Even though he may profess being a Christian or a Jew, he is capable of “putting his religion aside” for what is deemed to be a higher purpose. The Practical Atheist compartmentalizes his own personal religious and/or ethical norms and keeps them apart from his more formal social interactions, particularly those related to politics, civil law and work.
No moral code is held to be superior to any other; at least not superior enough to apply force (meaning civil law) to enforce it on everyone. Therefore, no moralist may seek to enforce his morality on any other through state power. This is, almost definitively, moral relativism. If all moralities are the same, then there is no such thing as morality. If all ethics are the same, then there is no such thing as ethical conduct, universally recognized.
Libertarians always give strong voice to the falsehood that You Can't Legislate Morality that leaves only one alternative, which is, to legislate immorality. Morality - a commonly held social moral code - is exactly and precisely what must be legislated by a representative government. The social moral code of America comes directly out of Judeo-Christian religion. If we are to abandon that moral code, then, what, exactly, are we to base our representative legislated civil law upon? Islam? Marx's Communist Manifesto? Wika? Hedonism? National Socialism? What, exactly?
Libertarianism is a reaction against the tyrannical state, and against philosophies promoting statism, such as Marxism. Today, at least in America, Marxism and statism are widely recognized by the citizenry (but not by the elites) to be failed approaches to government. Nobody with any common sense believes that private property equates to theft, or that government is a better provider of goods and services than the free market, or that Communism will free mankind, or that the state could do a better job of taking care of us than we can. All of that is just nonsense, and all real world practical men know it. The problem with Libertarianism is that it, too, sees itself as a potential world-wide panacea, or an ultimate world-wide goal for eventual world perfection.
No system – not any form of Marxism, not any form of Conservatism, not Libertarianism, certainly not pure Democracy, not Parliamentarian Democracy, not the unique American Republic, not any form of government existing or yet to come into existence – is ever likely to “convert the world” to itself. No governmental system known or yet to be devised is ever going to do that, nor is anything man comes up with ever going to bring about any perfect world-wide political system. It just ain’t gonna happen.
Each country is just going to have to do the best it can to prosper in peace in a difficult world with dangerous neighbors, and so far, America has done a far better job of it than any other country in world history. That is not to say that America is perfect, nor is it to say that the whole world would be better off if it converted to Americanism. We – the United States of America – are so completely unique that that would be quite impossible. We, like every other nation, need to concentrate our political efforts on the practical, the possible and the attainable. The best that can be hoped for regarding the whole world is that more will hear the Gospel and embrace the message on their own.
The Libertarian political approach is good economically and constitutionally, but it falls down morally, because it misses the point that man needs external moral rules to guide his behavior.
Libertarians support the bogus Separation of Church and State principle to avoid the necessity to honor the Judeo-Christian Ethos – based moral rules that come out of our national religion. We have shown that the Separation of Church and State Argument is no constitutional principle at all, and that it was brought into being not by representative legislation, but by unprincipled, unconstitutional and evil adjudication or judicial opinion, establishing “law” by judicial fiat rather than proper constitutional process.
Even above that, Libertarianism denies the very nature of This Christian Nation of America, whose constitution and laws themselves are based upon the Christian morality of our founding fathers and the continuous dominant faith of the citizenry. Look at the Church and State in Art page for graphic examples of the foundation of our own civil law.
Libertarianism supports the notion that we have successfully refuted in the On Legislating Morality argument. Libertarianism denies man’s need for Tradition and Moral Discipline in favor of a hands-off, my morality for me, your morality for you, infinitely variable moral relativism.
Amorality creates a vacuum which will always be filled with immorality. History shows that we began as a moral people; a glance at what’s on TV and on the cover of popular magazines and overpowering the internet reveals what we are becoming. Leading spokesmen for Libertarianism eschew what they refer to as Victimless Crimes. Activities such as prostitution, drug dealing and so forth involve only willing participants who know what they are getting into, and thus all such activity should be legalized.
Libertarians consider themselves “liberated” by the Sexual Revolution, which opened their eyes to the non-hurtful nature of fornication between “consenting adults.” This new “liberated” wisdom sees Open Homosexuality as a cultural blessing and a sign of an enlightened populace.
Libertarian spokesmen favor if not promote Legal Abortion as just another form of Artificial Contraception , but they prefer to call it Choice to hide the truth of what they favor. The sole reason for this particular favoring of “choice” is the promotion of easy, frequent and even casual sexual gratification without responsibility, attachment or even knowing each other’s names. The Libertarian will always support choice so long as he is not the one being aborted.
The bottom line, when you speak of a society’s morality, you cannot make it neutral for very long. A people will either be moral or immoral; amoral, or the absence of morality, can only be a temporary situation. Nature abhors a vacuum.
A Vote Splitting Election Looser. The Libertarian Party, as a “Third Party”, has virtually no chance of winning any national election. America has always been a Two Party Republic, from the original Tories and Whigs to what they morphed into, the Democrats and the Republicans. All other Parties in any national election wind up sidelined also-rans. But that is not to say they have not and will not do damage to one or the other main Party candidates or issues in the process.
America’s most damaging Marxist Presidents until Obama – Carter and Clinton – each had more people voting against them than for them, yet they won their elections, thanks to third Party candidates who split the conservative vote. Clinton did it twice, thanks entirely to third Party conservative candidates.
A lot can happen between now and November 2012, but the way things stand right now, the only possible way Obama could ever hope to win re-election would be through a split conservative vote. The third Party that takes the most conservative votes today is the Libertarian Party. And, unfortunately, more conservative political Parties are springing up like wild flowers, thanks to Republican betrayal and stumbling.
What America (and the world) needs is a strong, reinvigorated, recommitted Republican Party. Men of good faith need to alter it and modify it for the better, getting the best available new grass-roots conservative candidates into all levels, local, state and federal. The worst thing about the Libertarian Party is the same thing that is wrong with the Libertarian movement itself: it has no moral grounding, and it always threatens to poison the well of the possible election of good conservative candidates and issues.
Americans (and the whole world) needs a resurgent, free, strong and vibrant America, and the Republican Party, for all its past failures, for all its disrepair, for all its rotten leadership, for all its needed changes, represents the best possible path to a strong and vibrant American nation.
If you are a constitution-loving conservative, then you need to get behind the Republican Party, and get into it, and change it for the better, from top to bottom.
Libertarianism is not the way.

"whose constitution and laws themselves are based upon the Christian morality of our founding fathers and the continuous dominant faith of the citizenry"
Anyone who has read the constitution - and is honest, knows this to be false. That is where you made yourself irrelevant. If you lie or misconstrue facts - that are readily viewable by anyone who cares enough to actually read the constitution or has actually read on the framers, the lives and religious views, then you have already lost your argument by your own hand. Obviously having external morality code has not helped you be honest.
On man needing external morals: You’re no different than the Muslims who think that if a woman is not covered - they will become so enraged with lust that they will rape her. Give man a little credit. Whose morality may I ask do we follow? God of the bible who sanctioned rape and murder of pregnant women, innocent children or etc - or that fable of Jesus Christ and the divide and pretend separation from God and his lack of morality, compassion and empathy? "But we're under the 2 covenant" rhetoric. Christian morality is secular - it not from God nor Christ. If we lived under that form of morality we'd be as the Middle East. As typical you're delusional and have extreme cognitive dissonance. Stick a q-tip in your ear, use vigorously. Stop reading Bronze Age material and trying to make it fit modernity. Why don't you instead focus your time on changing your church to let women be heads - break up the pedophile monopoly that plagues the cult. When you have young, sexually immature males housed up with older sexually constrained males- who have been denied their sexual nature ... this is what happens. Sexual deviancy has always existed in the Catholic Church. Which by the way has not been helped by the external morality nonsense you spew on here ... Now has it? Never mind, your cognitive dissonance will dismiss that fact because it doesn't fit your ideology.

Sigh. There’s no gentle way to say this; it just doesn’t get any dumber than this.
If you want to read the American Constitution, you will find it on this site, right here. If you want to read our Declaration of Independence, you will find it on this site, right here. Check my historical sources in the Reference Material page regarding the written and spoken words of our Founders. Either you have not read any of this, or you are not honest, and by your own words, you are hoist by your own petard.
If you think there is no difference between Islam and Christianity then you have not ever studied either of them, and you do not even know what they are.
I don’t know where on earth you got all the rest of this blather and nonsense, but I know that it is far too muddled to try to even decipher, let alone to try to respond to in any coherent way. It is all untrue, incoherent and illogical nonsense.
But let me say this. You attack all common or community-held moral norms, and believe that the existence or establishment of any external social moral code is bad for man, and not good. This is to say, you do not know right from wrong, and you do not believe that anyone else knows right from wrong, in any way that makes sense to you or to anyone else.
Don’t look now, my dear, but that makes you a sociopath. I wonder what kind of table manners are on display at your house. In fact, I wonder how anyone in your house even manages to get out of it alive.
The moral differences between religious American conservatives and Democrats (and any other variety of Marxists) are stark and clear, not only in economic and political models, but in morality. I described the ethos of religious American conservatives in the Judeo-Christian Ethos page, and I put it up against any other ethos and any other moral code on earth, and stated that it is the highest moral standard ever to exist. I stand by that claim.Democrats (and other forms of Marxists) cannot name their ethos or their moral code, for they have none. They always falsely claim the high moral ground, but they cannot name their moral code. I have named it for them. I call it the ethos of BMDFP10 and Weiners, or the ethos of BMDFP10 and Franks, or the ethos of BMDFP10 and Clintons, or the ethos of BMDFP10 and Libertarians, like you.
The Democrats love abortion; they champion it, they sponsor it, they support it with money and with legislation and appointments of pro-abortion judges. It’s a major plank in the Democrat Party platform; its what they stand for and what they are about. There is a huge existing library of radically pro-abortion speeches by big shot Democrats. Libertarians waffle a little and say they don’t personally like aborting people, but others have a right to commit abortions.
Democrats love sodomy; they champion it, they sponsor it, they support it with money and with legislation and appointments of pro-sodomy judges. It’s a major plank in the Democrat Party platform; its what they stand for and what they are about. There is a huge existing library of radically pro-sodomy speeches by big shot Democrats. Libertarians waffle a little and say they don’t personally like sodomy, but, after all, how important is marriage anyway, and how important is the normative family? It’s no skin of their nose if the foundation of the family is broken in our society.
Pick a moral subject – that is, if your can recognize a moral subject – and see if the Democrats don’t champion it and the Libertarians don’t look aside from it, so long as it doesn’t affect them personally. Libertarians don’t give a damn about the rest of society. And, Democrats (and other Marxists) despise Christians.
Would you teach your children the goodness of abortion? Would you teach your children the goodness of sodomy?
Sigh. Beam me up Scotty; there’s no intelligent life down here.

Sociological Definition Pages
Definitions of all the "isms" with a lot of consensus of thinking behind them, which makes them popular opinions or ideas seeking political favor.
Definition of Marxism: Total control of means of production, including workers. The definition of Marxism describes the social, economic and governmental philosophy of Karl Marx, co-author of the Communist Manifesto.
Definition of Freudianism: The psychoanalytical thought and practice of Freud, Jung and Kinsey. This definition of Freudianism addresses Sigmund Freud's turn of psychological focus from cognition and intellect to the unconscious & subconscious mind.
The definition of Darwinism in a nutshell. In the definition of Darwinism we find the foundational priciples upon which the quest for the atheist holy grail: the purely material origin of life itself.
Definition of Islam: Ideology of Military Conquest Masquerading as a Religion. The Definition of Islam describes the “Convert, Submit or Die” War Strategy of Mohammed.
The term Marxist defined: Marxism today has overtaken many earlier terms. Re the term Marxist defined in contemporary usage. The term Liberal doesn’t mean what it used to mean either.
Definition of Conservatism: "That government is best that governs the least." A definition of conservatism must recognize that, politically speaking, the terms Liberal and Conservative have traded places.
Definition of Libertarian : A Pro-Constitutional Practical Atheist. The definition of Libertarian describes a religiously-cleansed conservatism defending core American political values while denying moral absolutes.
Definition of Capitalism: Economic Organization based on Private Property. Any true definition of Capitalism must state that it is purely an Economic system, not a Government system, and it works most efficiently and profitably under Representative Government.
Our argument supporting the Rule of Subsidiarity, practicality and common sense. The moral and organizational Rule of Subsidiarity is crucial to the rights of man and essential for freedom.
Definition of Communism: Marx's theoretical classless utopian society. The Marxian definition of Communism involves the theoretical, perfect, classless society with common ownership of all economic "means of production."
Definition of Fascism: System of Marxism resisting the Worker's Revolution. A true definition of Fascism must recognize its deep roots in Marxism.
Definition of Anarchy: Opposition to State Authority in favor of - well - Gangs. They said it couldn’t be done; but even the most cursory Definition of Anarchy shows it to be even more stupid than Communism.
Definition of Socialism: Intermediary phase between Marxism and Communism. Definition of Socialism: 1) The older ideology with "collective" ownership of power and means of production; 2) Marx's "Dictatorship Of The Proletariat" evolving toward Communist Utopia.
Definition of Democracy: Ideology stressing direct or electoral majority rule. The definition of Democracy as a form of government involves policy and law determined by the actual, real majority of the people governed.
Definition of Republic: A state in which sovereignty rests with the people. This definition of Republic stresses autonomy and rule-of-law, and places the root of sovereignty in the people or their electorate.
Liberal Democracy defines elected representative government under rule-of-law. Liberal Democracy is differentiated from Social Democracy by not restricting the right to private property, which is to say, the means of production.
A pure Democracy that left the natural economy alone would be ideal. Pure Democracy in the Jeffersonian model, with unfettered free market Capitalism, would out-perform any other system.
Description of pure Socialism - the ideal that all Socialism is driving toward. A true, pure Socialism would be something considerably less than the Utopians dream of, since perfection is not of this world, or of this life, and will never be encountered in either.
Social Democracy defines an attempt to force-fit Marxist ideas into a Democracy. Social Democracy, neither fish nor foul, seeks, by devious means, by the gradual rather than revolutionary path, the ultimate victory of Communism, or, Communist Utopia.
