Joshua Smith, another Libertarian candidate for president, is calling for the repeal of Title IV-D of the Social Security Act. Smith attributes the provision of the landmark law to causing an epidemic of fatherlessness, contending that it “has incentivized states to separate parents and give unequal family time to one parent so the state can collect child support from another.” 

According to Smith, under Title IV-D, “the federal government gives the state 3 dollars for every 2 dollars spent on child support programs to continue the incentives. If the parent fails to pay, for any reason, even hard times, they are criminalized and penalized. Earning the state even more revenue.” Smith predicts that abolishing Title IV-D will “put the incentives back on peaceful co-parenting with equal responsibilities and family time.”

Smith also wants to designate the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League as hate groups, maintaining that “they have, for too long, used the power of mass formation psychosis to paint peaceful people as hateful, or extreme.” His campaign puts a premium on self-defense, vowing to abolish the ATF and the Gun Free Schools Act of 1993, while implementing national reciprocity and constitutional carry.

In addition to eliminating the Department of Education and the Federal Reserve, Smith has promised to “launch a full investigation of everyone involved in the federal COVID regime” and “advocate for them to be prosecuted to the fullest extent for crimes against humanity.”
