  •  You're correct... (4.00)
    But when you have Hillary who's going after video game companies in a puritanical fury...

    When you have blue states pushing smoking bans and seat belts for dogs(?), you begin to wonder where the hell the nanny state is going to end..

    When you have Pelosi and a huge bunch of democrats refusing to help people out in the Kelo vs. New London decision by refusing to vote for helpful legislation..

    You prove the point that Democrats really aren't interested in individual liberty or helping people protect their own property. Democrats come across as more puritanical, pompous, condecending than any Republican.

    •  Hillary Isn't the Democratic Party (none)
      I don't think that Hillary going after video game makers will tarnish the image of the Democratic Party.  Unless we nominate her.  But there are plenty of good Democrats out there that can appeal to libertarian votes.  Many of us libertarian Democrats recently launched a new blog-community called Freedom Democrats.

    •   When Gore Ran The First Time (none)

        I know a lot of people who didn't support him because of Tippers music label crusade back in the 80's.

        We tend to stereo type the GOP as Christian types who want to legislate morality because that small segment put them over the top, but there's probably even a greater number of libertarian leaning people.
