L imiting government

Leaders of the Univer-
sity's chapter of the College
Libertarians say the group
is trying to distinguisb
itself from other poliical
organizations on0 campus by
ltooking beyond party lines
sod instead ftocusintg on the
issues that shape the nation.
"We're not a traditional
political group," said Busi--
ness Schtool junior and exec-
utive board member Sam
van Kleef.
The Libertarian party,
van Kleef said, supports
issues -that minimize gtov-
erment involvement and
maximize individual free-
donm, like those related to
tax reform, health law and
weapons law.
"We believe there should
be linmited government in
both the social and eco-

ntomic aspects of our lives,"
he said.
During meetings, van
Kicef said the grottp usually
discttsses a particular issue,
how parties approach it, and
how it can be improved.
Van Kizef said the group
focused on Proposition 19 -
a failed ballot initiative that
would have legalized and
taxed marijuana in Califor-
nia - which the group sup-
ported.
Vats Kizef said he and
others were "disappointed"
with the ultimate rejection
of the proposition.
"There's really no moral
backing so allow one person
tto tell another person that
they can't smoke nasrijuana
or do other drugs, as long as
they're ntst hartming other
people," he said.

Among the diverse issues
that interest the group, van
Kleef said they tend to shy
away from debating issues
during meetings over which
members of the group would
be completely polarized.
"Overall, we tend to form
a pretty strong, unified
front," he said.
Van Kleef added that he
hopes to see this "utnified
front" continue to grow,
inviting anyone interested
in the ideals of "individual
liberty, freedotm, and per-
sonal responsibility" to join
the Libertarians.
"We really try to push
the ideology that people are
best off when they're free to
do and act as they wish," he
explained. "I think this is a
positive message."
