What if?

Muir Boda – Libertarian Candidate for Congress in Maryland’s 1st District

What if Congress was bought and sold by corporate interests?

What if tax loopholes and regulatory exemptions were bought and sold in the halls of Congress?

What if both major political parties have become so ineffective at addressing the issues of the day?

What if the Constitution was actually designed to restrict Government but we continue to elect people to Congress and the Presidency who ignore it?

What if our use of Drones kill more civilians than terrorists and creates more enemies for America?

What if Peace is cheaper than war? What if we had leaders that listened to and adhered to the guidance of our founders such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison.

What if we elected people to Congress who actually believe our Government should be constrained inside the Constitution? What if those choices are actually on the ballot?

What if the private sector was freed from government regulations and an oppressive tax system? What if that actually created tens of millions of new jobs and made our manufacturing sector competitive with the rest of the world?

What if the 1st District of Maryland had someone else other than Andy Harris representing them in Congress who supports Civil Liberties? What if we had a Congressman that would have vehemently opposed the Patriot Act, The National Defense Authorization Act, CISPA and was not on the hook to special interest for hundreds of thousands of dollars?

What if that person was actually on the ballot? Well, I am.

Chicken Sandwiches, Same-Sex Marriage and Free Speech

With the recent controversy over same-sex marriage, comments made by the CEO of Chick-Fil-A and free speech, I thought it appropriate to weigh in on this issue. I am often perplexed as a Christian and a Libertarian at the level of emotion that this issue generates. I also think the main problem with this issue is that people fail to separate their personal and religious beliefs from their political and public policy positions.

Getting Government Out of Marriage and Religion

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

One of the most divisive issues today is Marriage Equality and both sides wanting government to legalize certain marriages or define marriage. Both sides are wrong; in that they want Government to define what is or is not marriage.

For thousands of years marriage has been a religious ceremony. Nearly every religion and culture has traditions, doctrine and scripture that set forth their guidelines for that institution.

As a Libertarian I believe individuals are free to make their own choices, so long as their choices do not infringe on the rights of others. Though I hold strong beliefs and convictions as a Christian, I have no right to force upon another through legislative action my personal theological beliefs about any issue. The Constitution is clear, Congress can make no law respecting an establishment of religion or any law that would prohibit the free exercise of religion.

Again, the Constitution is clear and concise. Congress has no authority in defining what is and what is not marriage. By definition, any decisions concerning Civil Partnerships or Domestic Partnerships classification should be left to the States or people as defined in the 10th Amendment.
