How does libertarianism deal with collusion?
Are the Libertarians for or against the Civil Rights Act?
Though Libertarians share a basic political philosophy, they are not a collective of identical individuals with identical opinions on this issue or any other. That being said, by and large Libertarians are for Civil Rights, but most take issue ONLY with Title II & VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as these sections may interfere with private property rights (at least from the perspective of the leading Libertarian thinkers of that time).
Asked in Founding Fathers
What do libertarians stand for?
Libertarians believe in SELF-government, and in personal freedom. Governments in general are a necessary evil, to be tolerated and strictly limited. Personal freedom should to be maximized. In general, a Libertarian will generally disagree with the statement "There ought to be a law...." Most laws are BAD laws, even the necessary ones. Libertarians believe in personal responsibility for their own actions.

Asked in Libertarianism
What do libertarians believe?
Libertarians believe in the reduction of government in all aspects. Most Libertarians believe there are two legitimate purposes of government, to protect citizens from force (such as theft, murder, rape, invasion, etc.) and from fraud (such as false advertising, misrepresentation of a product, etc.). Libertarians believe that the government should reduce taxes on everyone, privatize as much of the government as possible, create a foreign policy based on honest friendship rather than fighting expensive wars, create a stable currency based on some fixed, valuable commodity (such as the Gold Standard) and generally reduce government influence in our lives. Libertarians believe in personal responsibility and believe that unless you are violating the rights of others you should be allowed to do as you see fit. The primary Libertarian philosophy for a few issues are: The government should not endorse, sponsor or otherwise be involved with marriage. They believe that marriage is a matter of personal and religious preferences and should be seen as any other partnership. You will find Libertarians who believe homosexual marriage is not morally wrong and you will find some Libertarians that believe that homosexual marriage is morally wrong. However, they do not believe that it is the government's job to oversee marriage. The government should not control what we consume. People should be held responsible for their actions no matter what. Libertarians point to the prohibition of alcohol and how that caused massive amounts of crime, not because of the alcohol but because of the government's ban on it. They see the same thing happening with the "war on drugs" where we are spending money and fueling violence because of the ban on drugs. Most Libertarians do not condone the use of drugs, but they see the costs of drug prohibition to be higher than the effects of the drugs themselves. They believe that someone is responsible for their own actions and must deal with the consequences, if someone decides to drive recklessly, no matter if they are sober, high, drunk, etc. they should face the consequences for driving recklessly. Libertarians believe in the right to bear arms. They believe that so long as you can safely store your arms, you should be allowed to have them. Libertarians believe in ending wars rather than starting them. They oppose US intervention in Iraq and Afghanistan along with the "War on Drugs" and other armed conflicts around the world. Libertarians believe that government projects should be first reduced, but secondly be funded through user fees, not taxes. For example, you would pay if you drive on a government-sponsored road. However, if you didn't drive, you wouldn't have to pay. Libertarians believe that taxation is theft when it is used to take from one person to give to another. Some of the issues though, Libertarians are rather divided, for example, on abortion there are some Libertarians who view a baby in the mother's womb as an extension of the mother and it is hers to do as she wishes. Just like it is a right to dye your hair a certain colour, it is her right to choose what to do with her pregnancy. There are others however, who believe that life starts at conception and believe it isn't an extension of your own body and rather that baby counts as a new individual who's rights need protected from force (murder) in an abortion. Both are rather popular and both are solid Libertarian philosophies. However, both sides agree abortions shouldn't be government funded. The libertarians want an unregulated free market economy . They also would like a world with privatized social security .

Asked in Libertarianism
What three things do libertarians want to do?
There's no official top three things libertarians want to do. But generally speaking most libertarians at the moment seem to be focused on 1) auditing/ending the federal reserve, 2) lowering/abolishing the income tax and 3) withdrawing troops from overseas bases where they aren't needed. Legalizing marijuana is also high on most libertarian's priorities.

What do the Libertarians believe?
To put it simply, Libertarians believe that you have the right to live your life as you wish, without the government interfering -- as long as you don't violate the rights of others. Politically, this means Libertarians favor rolling back the size and cost of government, and eliminating laws that stifle the economy and control people's personal choices. Unlike liberals or conservatives, Libertarians advocate a high degree of both personal and economic liberty. In a sense, Libertarians "borrow" from both sides to come up with a logical and consistent whole -- but without the exceptions and broken promises of Republican and Democratic politicians. For example, Libertarians agree with conservatives about freedom in economic matters; in favor of lowering taxes, slashing bureaucratic regulation of business, and charitable -- rather than government -- welfare. But Libertarians also agree with liberals on personal tolerance; in favor of people's right to choose their own personal habits and lifestyles. Should I join the Libertarian Party? Ask yourself: Is government too big or too small? Are taxes too high or too low? Does the government regulate my business too much or too little? Does the government control my personal life too much or not enough? If you agree, like most Americans, that government is too large, too expensive, and meddles too much, the Libertarian Party is for you!
