The REAL Enemy Of Freedom Is Hiding In The Last Place You’d Expect To Find It
Whenever one hears the word “libertarian” we often think of a political philosophy that promotes freedom and opportunity and favors less government. Indeed, it’s become “cool” in many youth oriented circles on the right to claim to be a libertarian and not one of those “stuffy” social conservatives. Lisa Kennedy Montgomery, AKA “Kennedy,” is a classic in this regard. As the host of her ownFox show and a regular on many other Fox shows like The Five, she never misses an opportunity to snippily remind her audience that she’s a libertarian and will routinely make remarks like “I’m for gay rights” and bash the idea of closing our border to illegal aliens and terrorists.
But in practice, libertarianism leads to big government and it always has. On the issue of gay rights, Kennedy, as a libertarian, should know that government cannot create phony “rights” for people based on some abnormal sexual behavior. Such a notion is completely contrary to the founders’ vision. No one has proved that homosexuality is genetic and, indeed, the massive “Human Genome Project” involving thousands of geneticists, was unable to find a homosexual gene. So why are we granting “rights” to people based on a trait they are not born with?
Moreover, the evidence still favors the idea that homosexuality is a behavior shaped by environmental – and sometime traumatic – events that usually occur during youth. When government grants rights to a class of people based upon on an abnormal behavior, it generally comes at the expense of real constitutional rights. And that’s what is now happening all over America. As Americans, gays enjoy the same constitutional rights as everyone else but the gay rights agenda is designed to undermine the basic constitutional rights of others.
