The Technology Geek attempts to be as non-nonpartisan as possible the reality though is that most of our political discussion comes from a libertarian mindset so I felt it would be a good idea to add a bit of information about it to our website.

The Libertarian Party is actually a legitimate political party active in all 50 states and is the third-largest political party in America

I believe in a lot of the libertarian views but not all of them. I like the libertarian view because it promotes a less intrusive government. Libertarians strongly oppose any government interfering in their personal, family and business decisions.  Essentially, they believe Americans should be free to live their lives and pursue their interests as they see fit as long as they do no harm to another.

A short summary of my view of Libertarianism at The Technology Geek

Stop Internet Censorship – America’s Founders couldn’t foresee the Internet, but they knew that government control of information was not only a violation of personal liberty — it was a threat to their hopes for a nation based on the principles of self-government. So they gave us the First Amendment.

Budget – Reduce taxes, spending, and eliminate controls on trade. Abolish all regulation of banks in favor of free market. Pass constitutional amendment requiring a balanced federal and state budget and stop raising the debt ceiling.

Crime – Three Strikes approach and encourage private efforts to fight crime.

Military – Military should defend against aggression; not world police. Reduce defense spending by half; just defend the US.

Welfare – I don’t want to pay for your lifestyle so tax payers should never have to subsidize behavior of any group nor should they be forced to pay for “programs” that take away the consequences of stupid behavior. The government should not be in the business of redistribution of wealth, which the graduated income tax does. I believe that the “entitlement attitude” is a cancer that is killing our nation.

Again you may not agree with my political views but again THAT’S YOUR RIGHT.
