I am to believe that the CP is in favor of things such as: Individual states deciding the gay marriage issue or individual states deciding on the issues of drugs, abortion, etc... Is that correct? My opinion is that the best government for deciding those issues are the individual people. One person should only have influence over him/herself and the family. That's how I see it. I truly believe that having so much responsibility put on the shoulders of families may help to stregnthen the family.

"Each state has a constitution that outlines what powers have been delegated to the state gov."

This may be where I've missed out on some information. This is probably the first time that I've ever heard anyone mentioning state powers being based on the state's constitution. Very interesting. I guess I'll start learning here.

"My biggest objection to LP is their pragmatism. Nearly every argument Harry Browne made against (name it--Post Office, Soc Sec, public Ed, etc etc) is "it doesn't work."

This would take me into the party debate. I don't like to support parties, but rather their philosophies. Even a third party politician is a politician. A politician should always be the #1 enemy to any person, even if you agree with that person 100%. The job of civil servant is to be a servant. Its a sacrafice, or at least SHOULD be... NOT a glamorous opportunity. I also don't know much of Harry Browne. But, I do like what Micheal Badnarik had to say.

Could you explain what you mean, exactly? I do agree with their idea that there should be no treaties or entangling alliances... open trade and friendship with all. Even though that could be hard to stomach at times, I think it could prove to be for the best.

I don't think the neo-Libs are much to worry about. The correct term for what you describe is "libertine," which is much different from libertarian. Libertines feel the way they do because they are selfish. Selfishness leads to laziness. These people could never be much of a threat on a large enough scale to cause damage. These are also people that don't believe in God and don't believe in the devil. Though, the devil STILL could use them as tools, I would think that their political beliefs would keep them from harming others.

But I will definitely have to start studying the idea of the influence of state constitutions. I'll have to admit, though, that I am starting from a skeptic's seat... There really isn't any mention of state constitutions in the Bill of Rights or in the US Constitution that I can remember and D&C mentions the US but not the states'. If you have any information for me, please enlighten! : )
