Libertarian Party Platform – Proposed Planks


Reasons for Proposed Planks


1. LP should better detail regulations so can analyze problems to formulate solutions and transitions.


Health care planks don’t address many problem regulations, like Certificate of Need.

Education planks don’t mention the bigger problem of subsidies to schools.

Electricity deregulation planks don’t address many problem regulations, like transmission constraints.


2. LP should consider the possibilities of: (a) market imperfections, and (b) already imbedded government-granted advantages, before moving to free markets.


Does health care competition require ending the medical licensing of doctors?

Should children be responsible for their education even if parents are neglectful?

Should everyone be allowed to build electricity transmission lines?


3. LP should provide examples of real-life successes and failures, and cite reasons.


Why has Europe been much more successful with medical licensing?

Why have school voucher programs been unsuccessful?

Why has electricity deregulation had so many problems in U.S.?
