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....
I concur with those who admire Johnson's positions but are realisitc enough to know that he hasn't a snowball's chance in Hades of being elected. Our choices are Romney or four more years of Obamination, period. We may not like it, but "It is what it is". Perhaps we should try instead to make the Republican Party more libertarian in its outlook and platform.
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.
