Privacy protections have eroded; no military tribunals

Q: Do you support using military tribunals to try suspected terrorists?

A: No.

Q: Should the US grant law enforcement agencies greater discretion to read email, tap phones, and conduct random searches to prevent future terrorist attacks?

A: No. Privacy protections have eroded. The SSN has become a universal ID number, causing massive identity theft. Even as the government tracks all of us it has been unable to prevent our support of thieves and terrorists using our government issued credentials

The Patriot Act should be repealed immediately

Q: Do you favor the renewal of the Patriot Act, the addition of more powers (as in the Patriot Act II), and/or the passage of the SAFE Act, which would limit the Patriot Act's more intrusive provisions? A: The Patriot Act should be repealed immediately, including the record pork-barrel spending provisions. The system did not fail to protect us because we had not given up enough of our privacy and liberty to the government. The enemy was already identified, the government just failed to act.

Withdraw all troops and close all military bases abroad

Libertarians believe in providing for a strong common military defense. However, we need to withdraw our troops from and close our military bases in every foreign country.

And we need to look for ways to save money in training and routine operational expenses. Here is one way. As much as we can, we need to use corporations to provide for the specialized training that our military needs.
