The 1980 libertarian platform also called for the repeal of the Occupational Safety and Health Act.
Workers don't need protections. Employers can just be trusted to keep their employees who are working for minimum wage safe.
Finally, libertarians "oppose all government welfare, relief projects, and 'aid to the poor' programs," claiming that these programs are, "privacy-invading, paternalistic, demeaning, and inefficient."
Or, in other words, turn poverty over to the rich people. After all, they've always done such a great job taking care of poor people...
And, while it wasn't explicitly in the 1980 platform, who can forget that libertarians are also opposed to the Title II of the Civil Rights Act which, "prohibits discrimination because of race, color, religion, or national origin in certain places of public accommodation, such as hotels, restaurants, and places of entertainment."
To add insult to injury, they're also opposed to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, which prohibits employers from discriminating based on race, color, religion, sex and nationality.
Who needs civil rights anyway?
Clearly, libertarianism is not what most Americans think it is.
From wanting to privatize healthcare, to doing away with federal agencies and eliminating minimum wage laws, libertarianism put the interests of billionaires and the wealthy elite first, and the interests of everyone else dead last. And I do mean dead.
Now, ask yourself, is that the America you want to live in?
I sure don't...
