Filosofía política

I was brought up by ab Ayn Rand Objectivist, and and have always aspireed to he ideals of self-determinarion and self-reliance, so I naturally gravcitated to the Libertarian Party. Over time I have grown more soft-hearted and cooperative, so at this point I would identify myself as Liberaltarian.  I want to help people, but I don't want to do it by tak,ing money from other people who have earned it, and trying to keep people happy in the short term by borrowimng and pretending to have money you don't have will eventually result in disaster.
