    I’ve thought a lot about Libertarianism and Christianity and it seems to me that Christian Libertarianism is basically what conservative Republicanism should be. I’m comfortable supporting the modern Republican party while hoping to influence the party to act in a more Christian way. Our options seem to be 1.) support a party or 2.) do nothing.

    Republicans are supposed to be actually doing something to shrink the size of government. Since gov’t = force, I support most of the stated goals of conservative republicans.

    I personally think that Abortions should be outlawed. I think that if the state insists on recognizing marriages in any way, it should not be redefining a religious word (marriage) for the sake of placating bitter homosexuals. I can’t bring myself to say that drugs should be legalized and I don’t see any solid evidence anywhere which suggests that it does a society any better to do so.

    So, since I fit in both Republican and Libertarian camps, I vote for the only party of the two which presents a viable candidate (republicans). Perhaps Christians should stop trying to hyphenate themselves with -libertarian -republican -democrat -[anything]. I’m a Christian who, when it comes to politics, votes for the viable candidate who I perceive to be less evil than the other guy.

    I think a lot of people agree with you and that’s cool. but I will continue to challenge the notion that not voting is “doing nothing”
    Christians are called to do so much, and we can better change our country in a grass-roots one on one work that God has called us to than expecting our leaders to fix things.

    Well, what I meant was, “do nothing politically” which, to be fair, doesn’t really cover the topic very well either. I’ve always said that the real problem with the government is the voters. I think that if we did a better job spreading the Gospel that people would automatically do a better job at voting.

    yep! but keep in mind that narrow path Jesus talked about. When the majority of Americans at least “believe” in some morals, it’s a great democracy, but as that number dwindles and true discipleship is rare, we have to figure out the best way to navigate politics while staying close to Jesus
