A Fearless Platform 

01 Jan

By Arvin Vohra via Facebook 

Libertarians: It’s time for a fearless platform.
If 2016 showed us one thing, it’s that timid positions are neither necessary nor effective in current politics.
Our current platform is designed to technically be accurate, while not scaring anyone too badly. This is a losing proposition. A clear, inspiring, and immediately comprehensible platform is far better than the fine-print pretending to be marketing we have now.
Take the education plank, for example:
Education is best provided by the free market, achieving greater quality, accountability and efficiency with more diversity of choice. Recognizing that the education of children is a parental responsibility, we would restore authority to parents to determine the education of their children, without interference from government. Parents should have control of and responsibility for all funds expended for their children’s education.
What it means: Eliminate all public schools. Let people choose between free, world-class, online offerings, homeschooling, and private education in any form. 
Intransigent supporters of public schools won’t be fooled by the current obfuscation. Opponents and potential opponents won’t be inspired. 
Our job is to convince people of our positions, not to mask our positions and pander. In order for people to be able to be convinced of our positions, they first must understand exactly what the position is. They must understand that we oppose all forms of welfare, all public schools, the entirety of the drug war, all warrantless surveillance, all laws against adult prostitution, the FDA, Medicare and Medicaid, Social Security, etc. It would take a week to figure that out from our current platform. It should take 5 minutes. 
I intend to support only candidates for platform committee who will commit to an honest, comprehensible, fearless platform.
In Liberty,
Arvin Vohra
