    1. Glenn Beck’s rights are his. He can assign his rights to whomever/whatever he wants. He can assign them to Yoda, God, Allah, the Flying Spaghetti Monster… whomever he wishes. They are HIS rights. He can do what he wants with them.
    2. By assigning rights to a deity, the religion then has control over those rights – see Islamic countries to see how well that works out when you’re not part of the majority religion that controls government
    3. MY rights… her rights (that cute blonde over there…), and that person’s rights (that one… over there by the mailbox) – We all “own” our rights individually. That is what makes us unique individuals. I don’t agree with Beck on the nature of the Divine. As such, he may NOT assign my rights (or the rights of anyone else other) to his idea of “God”. He can give away his own rights all day long. They are his rights to do with as he pleases.
    4. If he or anyone else insists that my rights “come from” (eg. belong to, and are subject to the whims of ruler ship of some other power) – then he is guilty of the equivalent of RAPE of my rights.
    5. My rights are MINE – not Glenn Beck’s – and may not be assigned to anyone else. Hands off my rights.

    Interesting use of the the word “Shocking”….

    It’s not like you’re pushing an agenda or anything????

    Here is the easiest way I’ve found to explain Libertarianism in a nutshell to a conservative (they don’t like the concept, and usually go away mad): Libertarianism is conservatism with obedience to the ideal that religion is a personal choice and may not be used to remove or limit the liberties of other people. – Every single point I’ve found where Conservatives and Libertarians differ can usually be traced back to a religious/moral ethic applied in a statist fashion.

    I’m glad to see that SE has the balls to call it like she sees it – and to stand up for the Libertarian principles of treating everyone equally under the law.

    If conservatives want help standing for “Liberty” then groups like CPAC had better start embracing Liberty for everyone – not just those who meet their litmus tests.

    Thanks SE!

    You forgot a candidate in the story above. Libertarian Rupert Boneham is also seeking the Gubernatorial nod in this fall’s election. http://rupertforgovernor.com/

    Sounds like FreePAC is gearing up to support a true Liberty based candidate for POTUS. Good thing Gary Johnson is running – since he’s the only candidate in that race that isn’t another Big Govt candidate.
