Flaws of Libertarian Platform

Many Libertarian positions are woefully wrong, such as the desire to abolish regulated money and currency, practice isolationism [1], allow private ownership of military weaponry, allowing immigration regardless of linguistic and economic proficiency, allow abortion, allow gay marriage, and replace income and property taxes with other unspecified taxes and fees.
