I looked at the proposed Libertarian Party platform. It has been proposed by the Platform Committee.
While it is a yeoman's effort over past party platforms, it is still a disaster. It is written in graduate student language. It talks about concepts that the professors of graduate students sometimes don't understand.
It is my opinion that until the national Libertarian Party writes a platform in English at the high school graduate level, it will continue to confuse, obfuscate, scare away and provide fodder for attack by its enemies.
I'm disappointed for the Libertarian political philosophy provides the greatest good for the greatest number. It will help the poor who are too often politically disenfranchised. It will help small businesses, who have become government's tax collector and immigration enforcer, even though it's not their job. But our platform has consistently been written to hide these benefits in its obtuse language.
