My main issue with Libertarianism is that they see the government as being so oppressive yet turn a blind eye towards the oppression of privatized
They also ignore the fact that without a strong sense of community, something America and most western countries now lack, there needs
some kind of social security/welfare system.
I think libertarians range from idealist to just plain selfish, but they're better than right-wingers and I do like how they lack the self-righteous
bitchiness of left-wingers. I just disagree with their ideology about the only purpose of the government being defense and punishment of criminal
individuals - I think the government also has a place in protecting its citizens from predatory enterprise and in giving society a safety net and
giving people a voice.
As much as people have been trained to believe you vote with your consumption, it's really not true. Often times, people don't have a choice as to
what to buy, or where to shop, since their resources are often limited.
