Boston view students consider yourselves libertarians why not Republicans.
Is it because the Republicans want to go to war.
-- they want to have police what you've been putting your body or ban gay marriage.
Are well in Coulter says that we're out to lunch in objecting to those things.
The one at a time okay war.
Real war in Iraq aren't good we went into Iraq and for -- rock against Afghanistan but to X that no way than -- libertarians should appreciate there's one thing the federal got.
And the Republican Party positioning as we should intervene go to war do whatever it is foreign policy related.
When it makes America safer and I'll say quickly why I think Iraq was a magnificent war was Saddam -- dangerous -- you can't have these crazed terrorists out they are.
That -- it isn't twelve people by themselves or flying planes organizing not terrorist attack they're being funded -- -- work from Iraq.
-- Saddam was certainly looking to help them into -- and he was seeking as what now to.
Bipartisan commissions both here in England spent six months investigating he was looking for uranium from from Niger.
It is a problem -- you have all these countries some with very literate and pro western.
Pro American populations but -- led by crazy leaders I'd say that includes a -- Syria.
Are wrong on these are fantastic countries for regime change you know -- now go to bring it all these places.
Would keep that in mind so you might want to fund the insurgents -- you'll get your chance to had talked to her.
But just covered -- more briefly the drug war is a failure get rid of it huge -- -- -- libertarians on hot.
First of all and heroin and not big code all of it.
This is what people think libertarians are.
And living in a country that is 70%.
Socialist the government takes 60% of your money they are out.
There -- taken care of your health care on your pension as they are telling you who you can -- what the regulations they could -- with a broad and so here.
Liberal friends and they -- we want to legalize pot you know if you if you.
Pam -- until liberals like your position on employment discrimination and topped -- that they do -- -- know we don't know you don't it's always I'm not quite a lot of plot.
Lastly before the students get they have questions gay marriage why can't gays get married like straights do.
Well -- then you have to marry a member of the opposite Seth acts.
Why can't -- area member of there.
And I this isn't on my you're just sucking up to liberals when there are big fights we -- -- believe in very individual to be left don't know but my reasoning has and I -- of libertarians are gays or anything else marriages the most important.
Institution to civilize young people bring an end on -- that if you and I wanna divorce a lot more difficult so.
Women who want to destroy.
This point libertarian to listen to vest whenever we want to destroy the family so you'll have one loyalty.
And that is to the government's.
All right you students I'm sure one away -- air I really.
Am just kind of annoyed with the fact that EU -- Perpetuating the CAA type that -- -- at libertarians.
Are quote -- donors I have never smoked pot before.
I I never -- Ever want to try and all honesty.
The drugs that are legal I I don't wanna try any and you -- -- you're cards he asked me about.
-- of -- so my question and -- how does it.
How -- any of your business when I choose to my body if I'm not affecting any.
Let the lady answer.
Offer alleged individualists who -- very mob like on so small and big time business.
I'm the president is why is it wouldn't we -- living in fair stay.
Well first they talk about drug legalization but now have to paying for.
Oh what turns out coming down upon your health care debate you're on that would -- -- -- live to pay for your food for your housing.
It's not using any of those programs in a hypothetical world renowned very.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- She won't answer the question I answer -- All the drugs could be legal if we didn't have a socialist.
Health here's I would.
I'm Robert Thomas for a month College of Charleston and experts like to say you just monthly -- I think you can.
I can't have a problem with the way that your talking about gay marriage in the way libertarians here kind of talking about gamers because.
I've kind of always seen the libertarian position on gay marriage is kind of a third way we don't say what the liberals say which is that.
You know the government should define it one way or the other we say that the government should not be involved in marriage at all.
-- -- -- -- What is wrong with that third way position that Ron Paul -- advocated.
Well again were way past that point diving would be very hard to achieve an event but the government.
Issues divorce decrees -- -- alimony orders it issues child support child custody.
Would be appointed saying I just think government shouldn't be on Monday -- involved.
Okay the next -- you.
Time Iranian -- from Drexel university and a -- to ask like what gives you the idea that.
People who -- in a third party specifically because they won't compromise their beliefs would hold an opinion just to suck up to a bigger party.
Because I think there -- much bigger.
Libertarian there's an awful lot to be privatizing right now.
I mean why do we have an Education Department out of Washington DC when Ronald Reagan.
Commerce Department -- -- -- agricultural subsidies.
Where many are living in the kind inundation at 7%.
Socialist there are serious issues -- we could really use free marketeers.
-- -- -- About.
That's why I say here's talking not to liberals so let's just say the things liberals look like let's all the Reagan legalize.
-- -- -- couple more here.
My question has to do with marriage in the fact that you just said the I'm as an independent woman who's put myself -- college him in my senior year went back to college.
Men also is someone who is Bob my own home with my own money I am going through divorce and this is the most difficult thing I've ever had zero in my life.
Why do you feel that it should be more difficult for someone to get divorced when something is -- work.
-- Well I don't know your personal.
And I also don't like anecdotal examples but I mean -- when you body Arab refrigerator to break -- contracts to get.
To return -- -- refrigerator is is more difficult and most states and to break in marriage contracts.
It's very different time.
You yearn to get rid of a mechanical bond -- -- a year and it's still very difficult when you I don't know what the laws aren't you sick -- -- state to state.
Yet we heard it is -- of that here obviously you breast a lot of buttons I thank you for that please.
Thank her her colleague.
