I voted for Ron Paul in the primary and then Gary Johnson in the presidential election. If you look at the libertarian website, a classical liberal approach to these issues is explained. I will not necessarily call myself a libertarian anymore though because it seems to make you a jerk (which I have been in the past on this board). A lot of libertarians should be called "liberal"tarians.
Mudminnow, some specific libertarians are called "jerks" simply because they are "jerks"! No different than some of the other jerks of various political parties. Sometimes it's not the message but the messenger and how it comes across.
& There you have P.C. (neither this nor that) non-commitment writing at its finest, the generation's pretty good at that as well

I worked on AWACS when Boeing was building the airframe - the contract called for an off the shelf airframe (at that point we had built a few hundred of them ). It seemed as if the government folks job was to get as many add-ons as they could - unfortunately our contract administrators knew the game & made sure the company was properly compensated.
I did the missile sites for Minuteman - they had Engineers doing the routine inspection. The folks from the Corp were interested in pomp & circumstance rather than being interested in engineering.
On one cold December day in 1962 I was parked in front of the Corps office in Max, ND waiting for the Corps inspector to go with me to a site. Some one knocks on my frosty window & informs me I am in his parking stall & proceeds to berate me. When he finishes I rub my arm & ask him if he sees any stripes there, before he can answer I inform him this is a public street, I do not answer to him & I will damn well park there if I so choose. There is more conversation & finally the corps guy comes & we leave. Seems this guy is #2 in the Minot Corps office. They had a favorite name for him & my comment to that was that was a part of a MAN's anatomy .
We are just about to the work site when the radio comes on & announces "Boeing Sundstrom - report to Boeing Max office immediately - so I do. When I get to my bosses office my boss, his boss, his boss & the Base commander for Boeing are there - the immediately demand that I resign & I ask them why? It seems I have insulted one of their customers & they need to show action. So I ask to use the telephone & they ask me why - I tell them I'm going to call my US Senator Karl Mundt & check this out. They asked me to leave the room so they could confer & I did. a little while after that my boss came out & told me to go back to work. Draw your own conclusion .
