It seems we want the gov. to be involved in certain aspects of our private lives...for example abortion, birth control, healthcare, (medicare, medicaid, VA.), but to keep their noses out of other areas ie., banking, business regulation, environmental concerns, etc.
It seems to me that gov. intrusion into the private sector depends on what and how they're are doing it, and how it effects you and your particular political philosophy.
Some do not want, the gov. to be involved in aspects of our private lives, for example on income or taxes paid, healthcare, banking, the environment etc.
The reality is that the gov. has been allowed,(by us) intrusion into every aspect of our private lives.
Both parties, R and D focus on this.
In the coming election I intend to side with Franco and many other Libertarians and vote for GJ.
I do not believe that he will win, but it is time to start a different direction, which starts with a small step. R's and D's no longer serve us.
In the future, .....well I wish us all a future. JD
