    A libertarian who supports a government-business collaboration and resists individual freedom. I think that disqualifies you.

    And exactly what horrible things existed before government stepped in to protect us from our own selves?

    From the history books:
    The pure food and drug act
    consumer protection acts
    the clean air and water acts
    other liberals and independents can name more

    He sends Regressives into spasms and is beholden to no one. What's not to like?

    I think that some of our local libertarians should be strapped down and forced to read Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle," and then force-fed a hamburger.

    I have a negative view of Moore.

    I consider him the Beck of the left. Like Beck he will often exaggerate, misrepresent, or all together fabricate "facts" to push his own agenda and views while at the same time make gobs of money in the name of "informing the public". While I have nothing against either Moore or Beck becoming wealthy for entertainment, I do wish they would be honest in their representation of themselves. Then again perhaps they would not be as successful if they were upfront and honest into the real reason they do what they do. While both may have what they believe is the countries best interest at heart I believe that without the prospect of wealth that their dedication would wane greatly.

    Actually even before the creation of saving people from evil capitalists, the U.S. was one of the top 6 countries, in regards to life expectancy.

    Government had little to do with protecting us from the "evil."
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    "A report by the Bureau of Animal Industry refuted Sinclair's severest allegations, characterizing them as "intentionally misleading and false," "willful and deliberate misrepresentations of fact," and "utter absurdity."[7]"

    I don't think you can point to a post of mine in which I've resisted individual liberty, or advocated that the government step in to protect us from "our own selves."

    Protecting our freedoms from the excesses of those who are more powerful than we are is a legitimate function of governemnt.

    And yes, I should have a right to eat a hamburger knowing that it is at least relatively safe.

    You have mistakenly confused "famous" with "infamous".

    One isn't a positive.
