I'm not anti-government, and neither are Libertarians.

You sound like a half reasonable person
It is only a label, “left aid” In fact on many issues I would be classified a “right aid.”
Is feeding human beings, making sure they have health care, and a reasonable chance at a decent life where they don’t have to starve to death, a left wing philosophy?
Remember the government is supposed to be US! WE THE PEOPLE!
We elect them to represent OUR INTRESTS AS A WHOLE!
If a great number of us can’t find a job, are starving to death, homeless, THE GOVERNMENT IS SUPPOSED TO HELP!
VERY SIMPLE . . . CAN YOU UNDESTAND THAT, AND ALL THE OTHER DOGMATIC CONSERVATIVES WHOSE PHILOSOPHY HAS NO MORAL OR LOGICAL BASIS.

I'm OK with some government programs, though most have overreached their original intent. I'm not anti-government, and neither are Libertarians. We're anti-big government. Any government that has grown so large that it forces business out the country by passing enough laws that are too restrictive for economic growth has not only grown too large, it is committing suicide.

What restrictive laws have been passed on businesses?
I agree in some instances where government has over stepped it's bounds, like banning smoking in private establishments. I still don't understand how that is legal. But overall, the government simply needs reformed and it needs to represent the people which it clearly is not doing right now.
I think Libertarians and Tea Partiers agree but they want governmental changes in all the wrong ways.
