Rand is libertarian, one with conservative values.
Permissive views on sex, drugs and victimless crimes make sense to libertarians.
I can live with it. I want to see freedom and less government. Lot less.
There isnt anyone else who can do it. Conservatives are in disarray and could not win a cakewalk. RINOs are more of the same and everyone knows it. In this increasing police state, freedom allows everything else to follow.
With freedom you can get the conservative things you want down the road. Without freedom you are a cog in the leftist machine. Enslaved for a long time.
I firmly believe ‘permissive’ isn’t the word to be used; the description ‘Constitutionalist’ would be more accurate.
The Federal government should be limited to those powers stated in the U.S.Constitution. Any powers not so stated are reserved for the States. Every State in the Union, for example, has an Education Department and an Agriculture Department. (Duplication is killing our economy!) Education of one’s children should be under local control, as should agriculture.
State governments are where social engineering belongs. The Progressives have reapeatedly, over the past 100 years, used activist judges to carve out so called “rights” that do not exist in the U.S.Constitution. That is why who we elect as President and as Governors is so important.
There is no right to murder unborn children.
There is no right to marry whoever or whatever you want.

Their view may state it isn’t their business to be nannies on the Federal level, and sometimes on the state level, as well. But it is not within the Federal governments power to monitor such behavior; it belongs to the States. If you live in a state that does legislate such behavior and you’re pleased with the result, good. But it isn’t the Federal government’s respnsibility - they do not have the power per the Constitution to deal with it.
