    He's right without the island nation dude.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I also realize that I am not GOD and cannot make all those things reality.
    Just because you can't make them happen doesn't mean you should let the opposite happen.

    I dare say, caring for yourself is the most practical thing to do.

    I live in America and I am right. I have no responsibility to anyone except myself and, one day, my offspring.

    Libertarians believe every man is an island.

    Which explains why Libertarian candidates receive only a tiny, tiny fraction of support in elections by your fellow citizens. You don't care about them, so they don't care about your agenda.

    Its works out just as it should!

    My sincere apologies to Bardo; I had no idea there were any left of center Libertarians left. I thought they had all been co-opted by the recent flood of GOP refugees.

    Would love for someone to point out ONE way that I am responsible to anyone but myself.

    So your plan is to just wish things were the way you wanted them to be for you personally? Good plan! LOL!
