Things a Libertarian Can Believe In

The United States of America exists for the benefit of Americans. Any benefit we may happen to confer on the rest of the world should be calculated to advance the interests of Americans. Done properly, these things can ensure and enhance our life, liberty, and happiness:

  • Alliances

  • Military assistance to other nations and foreign factions

  • Forward defense

  • Pre-emptive defense

  • Assassination of terrorists abroad

  • Indefinite detention of terrorists and enemy combatants, including persons seized on U.S. soil

  • Quotas and standards for immigration

  • Thorough surveillance of our borders

  • No subsidies for, and immediate deportation of, illegal aliens

  • Mistakes can and will be made. But we shouldn't be paralyzed by the fear of making mistakes. Passivity is a greater mistake.
