Fox Creek; It seems to be a rare thing when we stay on topic ;)

When the law no longer protects you from the corrupt, but protects the corrupt from you - then you know your nation is doomed.

My mistake, I thought libertarians were liberal

true libertarians are liberal in the old sense of the word.  many, if not most of the libertarians i have tripped over in the last 10 years or so, are not really libertarians. they are wanna be anarchists and confused pot smokers.  true conservatives are more libertarian than most libertarians. 

confused yet? 
By the way, Ron Paul doesn't represent all libertarians.

is should hope not.  to me, his son strikes the right balance.  he is someone i could vote for. 

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called the government. They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
