If something makes sense you don't have to force people to do it. They will do it on their own just like ordering from Amazon. No force is involved. This is no different than speed limits. You build a car that can go really fast but make the sports car go the same speed as the big rigs and you need fines to keep them going the same speed. In Utah we have raised the speed limits yet deaths continue to go down. Could it be that it is actually safer to have higher speed limits? Please look up Germany's death per million miles compared to US. It seems it really is safer to go faster.

Isn't is sad the something as mundane as clean dishes takes regulatory approval from Washington DC? Libertarians did not create this mess! Just think about this as the state of Utah kept people in pain for years by not allowing them to use Cannabis. Then when they did only in certain ways. Yes, Republicans are just as bad as the Dems when it comes to regulation.

Here is an abstract of an article from Berkley of all places that shows that school choice in K through 12 leads to better outcomes

y Christopher Campos and Caitlin Kearns have some very positive results on school vouchers:

This paper evaluates the Zones of Choice (ZOC) program in Los Angeles, a school choice initiative that created small high school markets in some neighborhoods but left traditional attendance zone boundaries in place throughout the rest of the district. We leverage the design of the program to study the impact of neighborhood school choice on student achievement, college enrollment, and other outcomes using a matched difference-in-differences de-sign. Our findings reveal that the ZOC program boosted test scores and college enrollment markedly, closing achievement and college enrollment gaps between ZOC neighborhoods and the rest of the district. These gains are explained by general improvements in school effectiveness rather than changes in student match quality, and school-specific gains are concentrated among the lowest-performing schools. We interpret these findings through the lens of a model of school demand in which schools exert costly effort to improve quality.The model allows us to measure the increase in competition facing each ZOC school based on household preferences and the spatial distribution of schools. We demonstrate that the effects of ZOC were larger for schools exposed to more competition, supporting the notion that competition is a key channel driving the impacts of ZOC. In addition, demand estimates suggest families place a larger weight on school quality compared to peer quality, providing schools the right competitive incentives. An analysis using randomized admission lotteries shows that the treatment effects of admission to preferred schools declined after the introduction of ZOC, a pattern that is explained by the relative improvements of less-preferred schools. Our findings demonstrate the potential for public school choice to improve student outcomes while also underscoring the importance of studying market-level impacts when evaluating school choice programs.

So cops beat someone up and then say they have immunity. Who are these monsters? Why does our government support people like this?

The federal gov is saying this man can't sue the people who literally almost killed him. The cops should be grateful he is only suing them.

The cops belong in not in a courtroom but in a jail cell.

It is time to reform qualified immunity.

Gay people should have the right to adopt children. The state should affirm that right. Also, if the state adopts a child to someone it can not discriminate between gay and straight or anything else.

However, we should not force people or organizations to adopt children into gay or lesbian homes if they don't want to.

I personally think it is a bad decision on the Catholic charities' part but part of being a libertarian is to allow people to make decisions that you don't agree with. Given time there will be many gay friendly adoption agencies. I also support the rights of gay adoption agencies to adopt only to gay people.
