    If it ain't none of my dang business, and it isn't hurting any innocents, I generally don't stick my nose in uninvited.


    Yet I will gladly help anyone in need if I can... which definitely makes me a NON-Objectivist.

    Do you ever threaten someone with force if they wish to consume more soda than you think is healthy for them? No.... but New York City does.

    Do you ever threaten to lock someone up in your basement for a decade with a bunch of crazy-mean people if they pick up feathers that turn out to be hawk feathers? No... but the Fedgov does.

    Getting the picture?

    Restrictions and laws that seem unreasonable, coupled with penalties that seem even more unreasonable, are some of the main reasons I dislike the way our current governmental system works.

    I see your picture, now here's mine: I just don't see any new party in my life time unless it was the result of a separation of an already popular party.

    This is, perhaps, because no one really sees any other parties as viable, and most of the other parties have strange views which many people at least partially disagree with - the current main 2 parties at least have familiar views they disagree with.

    Why?

    If this is true, I'd say it's a cultural problem. Which needs changing. Which of course means that I'm up in a bunch of someone's business.

    All right, we'll excuse this one, just don't make a habit of of excluding the "E". You know how particular we are here on DP about missing "E"'s! ... :
