While political conservatives continue to champion small government, along with personal responsibilities and liberties, libertarians may carry the conservatives’ concerns to extremes, rendering personal liberties void of values and virtues.
The Libertarian Party platform states “consenting adults should be free to choose their own sexual practices and personal relationships.” These morals-free liberties will actually loose more sexual promiscuity, producing more unmarried parents whose personal practices require more police to answer more domestic violence calls, and more social workers to rescue more children from abusive environments.*
Such impudent public policies will continue harming our children and families, while increasing the size and cost of our government.
