    I have a lot of problems with libertarians (I'm a liberal -- or a progressive, whatever). Libertarians are sometimes right. Gay people should have the right to marry. And maybe smoking marijuana should be legal. Once in while, libertarians are right.

    On the other hand, libertarians are batshit crazy when it comes to other issues. I think we should have government regulations (about food safety, for example). And we need sewer systems and roads and police departments and all the other things that government provides -- schools and food stamps and Obamacare and Social Security and unemployment insurance and the Americans with Disabilities Act. Those are all good things that help people and make us a better country.

    I'm not a libertarian. Small government is bad government. I'd never want to live in Mississippi.
