Libertarians are Republicans that are too narrow-minded to realize they are Republicans.
Such is the case with Joshua Katz, a Libertarian who intends to challenge Republican Marilyn Giuliano for her seat in the Connecticut General Assembly's 23rd District.
According to his site, Katz wants to get rid of the state income tax, and roll back prohibitive gun laws that restrict law-abiding gun owners. He is pro-choice, and wants to prevent illegal immigrants from getting in-statetuition rates. Sounds like a typical Connecticut Republican, right?
If he sees Marilyn Giuliano as an opponent toward achieving lower taxes, and a better Connecticut, he isn't paying attention. He should be supporting Giuliano, not trying to fracture her vote.
Katz does come off as a bit of a moonbat in a couple areas, however. He apparently wants to prevent the Connecticut National Guard from being deployed overseas, and pull Connecticut out of the Selective Service, "protecting" any CT residents from a future draft.
Lofty goals for a candidate for state representative. As a state legislator, he'll pretty much need to get Connecticut to seceed from the Union to accomplish them. Good luck!
Finally, his answer to the health care issue is to expand naturopathic medicine and "alternative" health care. Excellent. I am certain there is no question that putting healing crystals on our nipples will greatly reduce health care costs. And greatly increase burial costs!
Mr. Katz's web site says that he doesn't want to sit back and do nothing about the problems he sees around him. That is admirable. However, if he unwittingly allows a Democrat to win this seat, he will have become the very problem he seeks to address.
