However, the liberals are quite right about the need for certain government and environmental regulations.
They have their minds and hearts in the right place when they talk about peace and love and whatever else.
Libertarian? Seriously? I have yet to meet a Libertarian that wants governmental involvement in "social issues". Admit it, you are a liberal. At least have the courage of your convictions to say what you are.

ETA: I am an independent, with libertarian leanings, however that being said, there isn't a republican running that would get my vote. Ron Paul has some great ideas, however, some of his ideas, will set this country back 100 years on social issues.
So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouthGod

As for corporations "policing themselves", I agree 100%. They will not. Do you know why? Just like liberals, they don't believe in real responsibility albeit for different reasons. Corporations CANNOT be held criminally responsible the way a person can. They cannot be sentenced to life in prison or the death penalty. They can only be fined. This is why I oppose giving corporations the same rights as people. Our current form of corporations is one of the major problems we have in this country. Companies should only be owned by people. People that will have to act responsibly because they can be truly punished for not doing so.
