OK, my list isn't very scientific. It's also probably unfair that I give demerits to candidates such as Huckabee, Christie and others who explicitly and cluelessly denounce libertarians.
Humans need rules. Rules make life more predictable. But when the rules multiply, the world needs some rule-breakers.
Clearly, lots of Americans are mad about immigration. But we libertarians believe that people trapped in horrible countries deserve a chance at a better life and that free trade in labor, not just products, is a good thing.
My town, New York City, enforces rigid gun laws. Police refused to assign me a gun permit. The law doesn't even let me hold a fake gun on TV to demonstrate something.
The government's environmental rules defeat even environmentalists. Thomas Collier is a Democrat who managed environmental policy for Bill Clinton and Al Gore. Then he noticed a mining opportunity in Alaska, one he calls "the single largest deposit of gold and silver that is not being developed in the entire world."
The taxi cartels, which provide inferior service and are micromanaged by government, don't like getting competition from efficient companies like Uber.
Obamacare! The War on Drugs! A War on Poverty! Prohibition! The idea that government will bring social progress isn't new.
Nearly 10,000 people turned out to hear Bernie Sanders in Wisconsin. Why? Apparently, many Democrats want socialism.

Since government can't run the rest of the economy wisely, why let it be in charge of money itself?
This year is the 10th anniversary of a book called "The Republican War on Science." I could just as easily write a book called "The Democratic War on Science."
Millions go to SeaWorld to learn more about sea life and get closer to killer whales. But fewer go now because the documentary "Blackfish" exposed what one reporter called "the darker side" of SeaWorld.
Protesters demand "social justice." I hate their chant. If I oppose their cause, then I'm for social "injustice"? Nonsense.
It's graduation time! Have we learned much? No. College has become a scam.
For years, my scientist brother Tom was the nonpolitical Stossel.
Charles Murray, already controversial for writing books on how welfare hurts the poor, on ethnic differences in IQ and on (less controversial, but my favorite) happiness and good government, has written a new book that argues that it's time for civil disobedience.
"This vast right-wing conspiracy," Hillary Clinton said, "has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced." That was the "feminist" first lady's response when her husband was accused of having sex with a 21-year-old.
I took a camera to Times Square this week and asked people, What creates jobs? Most had no answer.
Its not smart to get too enthusiastic about any politician. Ive been disappointed often. I believed Bill Clinton when he said, the era of big government is over. I thought George W. Bush was a small government guy. And Barack Obama
Religious oppression was one reason many of our ancestors came to America. They wanted to escape rulers who demanded that everyone worship their way. In Ireland, Catholics couldn't vote or own a gun.
