Michael Badnarik on Civil Rights
Libertarian Party nominee for President
Barriers to self-employment discriminate against minorities because few can afford the time and money necessary to tackle the red tape. Even minorities who would never start their own business get more respect from employers when they have the option to choose differently.
Minorities don't need preferential treatment to get ahead- they are just as intelligent, hard-working, and ambitious as other Americans. If you elect me as your president, I promise to end the economic discrimination that government regulations and licensing laws have imposed upon minorities.
Like every partnership, marriage should fit the individuals it unites, rather than be a "one-size-fits all" proposition defined by those outside the relationship. Each marriage should be what the partners want it to be-no more, no less.
Just as anyone can engage in a business relationship, any individuals should be able to enter into a marriage. Government's role in a business partnership is to simply enforce, not dictate, its terms. Government's role in marriage should be the same. Both those who support and those who condemn gay marriage will be free to practice their beliefs and persuade others to their way of thinking. Each individual will be free to choose. Isn't that what America's all about?
