Exactly right. don't mistake a slow rollback for a lack of action. This wasn't created in a day and it'll take years to reverse. We have to start and then continue even when it gets hard, even when people cry, even when the other side paints you as a killer of old ladies. Romney Ryan will have 4 years to make enough of a difference to convince people to stay the course. It won't be easy.

I’m a libertarian in part because I see a false choice offered by the political left and right: government control of the economy -- or government control of our personal lives.

People on both sides think of themselves as freedom lovers. The left thinks government can lessen income inequality. The right thinks government can make Americans more virtuous. I say we’re best off if neither side attempts to advance its agenda via government.

Let both argue about things like drug use and poverty, but let no one be coerced by government unless he steals or attacks someone....
