    Imho it would lead quickly to citizen revolt once most of the govt that actually helped the people went away.
    How would libertarians handle that?

    I'm not sure what you mean?

    Would everything, from schools to roads to police and fire stations be privatized then?

    No taxes?


    Explain please!

    Libertarians don't Believe in ALL Government or Programs to be gone.

    We just realize there are a lot of Programs out there that do more harm than good and are wasting Tax Payer money.

    There wouldn't be a complete end of all entitlement programs over night. You can't simply take away Social Security from those who have paid into it their whole lives and are now dependent on it. However, you can shore up those programs by changing our militaristic foreign policy to a non-interventionist foreign policy and diverting those funds. Then those who are dependent on those programs can still use them, and those who are not can then begin to keep more of their own money and make their own plans for their future.

    Still stuck on that? Regardless, were the Libertarian Party to miraculously get a majority in both the House and Senate and win the Presidency I doubt nukes would become legal to obtain.

    Non-interventionism means we handle our affairs. We can't be the policemen of the world.
