Libertarians don’t believe in public health care. Now at least one candidate says he believes in a survival of the fittest policy for government.
“For us human species to survive, not every member has to live,” Libertarian candidate Darcy Neal Donnelly said September 28th at a Cornwall all-candidate forum.
According to the Cornwall Standard Freeholder, Donnelly went on to call people waiting in hospitals for long term care “dead weight” amid boos from the audience. Donnelly is a candidate in the riding of Stormont Dundas South Glengarry.
Donnelly later apologized after making a comment about Liberal candidate Mark MacDonald’s 84-year old mother.
I have to admit – I did not read the article about the Libertarian health care policy. I heard a Libertarian ad on the radio, and that was quite enough – it’s just too scary for me!
