I want you to be able to govern yourself. The libertarian way lets you
decide how much independence is good for you and lets others decide
Replacing political controls with self-government will only go as far
as you let it. So let's experiment. Cut foreign aid. Deregulate
transportation. Repeal one drug law. Cut farm subsidies. Cut taxes.
As you gain self government, you will probably want more. That's for
you to decide. No one can force you to be free.  -- David Bergland
