Does anybody here consider themselves a diet libertarian?
I feel conflicted between the democrat parties and libertarian parties for a few reasons. 1) Guns- I really dislike Biden’s plan to ban and buyback assault rifles, the furthest I’ll go is stronger background checks, but even then I realize that the less guns people are allowed to have, the bigger and less safe the black market would be.
2) Healthcare- I really wish we had socialized medicine. This is the one thing I’m the furthest possible thing from a libertarian on
3)Free speech- I was annoyed by the anti-mask riots early into COVID but when The BLM protests/ riots started and everyone who said the antimaskers shouldn’t be allowed to protest called the BLM protesters saints i was pretty annoyed.
4) Drugs- personally, I don’t drink or smoke or do anything illegal, but if most drugs were made legal/ decriminalized by the gov’t, and then regulated with the FDA or some branch of it, overdoses, deaths and arrests would drop dramatically.
Thanks for listening to my reasoning. Please let me know if anybody else feels the conflict, and what you do about it
