    I think he's probably just annoyed by the religious fervor many libertarians seem to possess.

    I do believe your gender identification is off.

    I was kidding, yes. I think I actually have more conservative positions than libertarian ones.

    What religious fervor? A grounded, consistent libertarian is not a religious zealot.

    Then why do you lean "very liberal" if you're not that liberal at all? If you're closer to conservatism than you are to classical liberalism, then how do you lean "very liberal?"

    IN today's context, a liberal is one who feels that government can and should make the country better. A conservative is one who feels that less government makes the country better, and a Libertarian wants to get stoned. I feel strongly that government can be a force for good, and should be. When you break it down to individual issues, I do tend to side with conservatives on a few issues. Libertarians positions I disagree with pretty much across the board.

    Re: New Constitutional Amendment

    I think the 14th should be replaced, not just repealed. The original amendment was intended to insure that children of people brought here against their will could not be discriminated against and that states could not prevent certain people groups from enjoying the same constitutional rights as everyone else. It has been turned instead into anchor babies, affirmative action, gay marriage, equal pay mandates, etc. However, it does not prevent state gun laws which infringe on the federal constitution. It also does not prevent unfair taxation that taxes some at higher rates and gives credits and deductions to individuals based on their government approved choices. The 14th amendment needs to be repealed and replaced with something clearer that will keep states from abridging Constitutional rights for specific groups, guarantee due process of law for every human being and allow children born in the US to captive foreigners to be citizens. That was the original intent.
    Get informed: UNICEF foreign adoption policy is killing orphans and the US gives $132 million to UNICEF every year. Stop the madness.

    Senators were intended to represent the States, that's why. The House represents the People.

    And Senators do represent the states, and are selected by those states. So you should approve of the current system.

    But they thing is, they didn't represent the States. They represented the often corrupt politicians in the state house. Don't you see the difference?
