The Libertarian Mistake About National Security.

The Founding Fathers were very adept at seeing problems that could befall our country. They could not possibly be blamed for not envisioning transcontinental missiles, dirty bombs, bio weapons, and other weapons of mass destruction. These weapons can easily cross into our borders from nations half way across the globe in minutes or hours. Libertarians cling to the Founders on an issue the Founders had no way of knowing would come to pass.

The Libertarian Platform states.

3.1    National Defense

We support the maintenance of a sufficient military to defend the United States against aggression. The United States should both abandon its attempts to act as policeman for the world and avoid entangling alliances. We oppose any form of compulsory national service.

This was a sound principle in the time of the founders and the country up to the time the first nuclear device was produced. After that the world changed. Since that time there have been many more weapons developed that can be called WMD’s (Weapons of Mass Destruction) Many can be launched remotely from anywhere on the globe or carried in a brief case.

Terrorism has now the ability to kill hundreds to millions. Enemy countries can attack us in a matter of minutes or provide weapons to third parties to attack us.

Aligning with friendly nations is not a choice, but a necessity. We can not only rely on our own intelligence services. We need help from other nations in the war against terrorism. We also need allies in a time that nations can be destroyed in a mere minutes. The USSR was an enemy after we helped them from destruction in WW2. Just how could we of avoided that? We helped them to have the Germans forces split between two fronts. This shortened or won the war for the ALLIES. The USSR later became a threat to our nation that NATO helped to lessen. We began these entanglements for national security, we would of been much less secure without them.

Israel is our only true ally in a region of the world that is overtly and clandestinely against us. They provide our country routinely with intelligence we can not procure ourselves. They have on many occasions taken military action that we could not but benefited us none the less.

The Founders words and thoughts are a national treasure. Most all are as pertinent today as the day they were put to paper. On a matter as important as national security they can not be faulted for not seeing the dangers that would come and would surely of seen a need to make alliances in a world that has become smaller and more dangerous. If only Libertarians could see that too.

    Good post!
    I’m with the Libertarians when it comes to no compulsory national service.
    I also like a military sufficient to defend US against aggression.

    There may be a time for conscription but when it IS time, our soldiers need the best of thorough training, the best arms and equipment in the best condition, and a decent wage. To send a military off to do battle with anything less than the best training, the best equipment and the best leadership is unbecoming a first class nation. In other words, going cheap on our military is just being cheap in defense of US.

    It’s naive to think that, just because we may close our eyes to world events, our country will be secure.

    The notion that things don’t need boundaries and borders brings seafarers of a bygone century to mind. The people who believed a ship could sail over the edge of an ocean didn’t have a very good concept of boundaries, either.

      They are also for open borders and legalizing ALL drugs.

    Libertarian ideas on borders are a bit like kids without boundaries. It’s a noble idea but even our planet has boundaries and laws we’re obliged to respect. Imagine, for instance, someone ignoring gravity’s law and crossing the lanai edge on the 21st floor of a highrise….
    If it was done in stages I’m for drugs being off the books as illegal.
    Not saying make them legal, just de-criminalize the drugs.
