Nice piece. You speak for a lot of us. I'm a libertarian myself and a "conservative", for that matter. It's conservative to leave free people to live freely...to succeed and/or fail....to live happily or not...to do with, to and for themselves as they wish, as long as it doesn't infringe on another's liberty.
I'm with you, brother Stossel. Liberty means liberty. The FAR right and the big government right/GOP establishment fail to embrace liberty and limited government, although they are often the loudest voices proclaiming to be all about "liberty".
