I say we're best off if government just leaves us alone to our peaceful cooperation with whomever we please. Let politicians advocate moral behavior. Let them give to charities. But leave government -- which is physical force -- out of it....
For those of you who wish to debate your ;-) misconceptions and engage me in direct argument, I will provide my email address. I find this format too tedious for back and forth exchange of information. It is great for banter, but provides little hope of real in depth conversation. Romney is our only option. Whether a token vote for Johnson will have any effect is unlikely, but debatable. A third party is not the best approach. It is better to use this crises to get constitutionalists elected to congress. Romney is not a constitutionalist, but is the right man for this job and realistically, the only type of candidate with the ability to get elected in today's environ. Johnson and those like him are needed in congress as republicans.
All political candidates call themselves freedom-lovers, but they are not. Neither major party really opposes government control of the economy or of our personal lives. I'm a libertarian because I see the false choice offered by political left and right: Democrats talk about personal liberty; Republicans talk about economic freedom. But what they do once in power belies their words.
