I believe fundamentally in the idea of live and let live. I believe in treating others as I would want them to treat me. I don’t like people telling me what to do when such commands come from arbitrary authority. I believe in small government. Very small. I believe that everyone should mind their own business, including and especially the government. I believe in the dignity of every human being. Basically, be cool to me, and I’ll be cool to you. Some would call this a “libertarian” disposition.
Because I believe these things I like what Gary Johnson the big “L” Libertarian candidate for president has been saying lately. He originally was running for the GOP nod, he was twice elected governor of New Mexico as a Republican, but the establishment GOP shut him out of the debates. He’s a voice worth listening to and he’s a guy people should at the very least know about.
