No, I totally Agree! I have looked into Libertarianism quite a bit actually, and found some of it's values (particularly economic ones) to be disagreeable.

While other ones, I agree with 100%, (such as anti-violence, freedom of self and personal property, views on censorship, etc.)and seem to be at the very core of everything I believe.

Basically it boils down to this: I believe the government should step up, and do their job as a government to protect the welfare and and rights of it's citizens. I also believe that taxes are vital to growth of the economy. If you have more money than you honestly need, it seems only fair to me you use it to assist those who have none at all. It should be the governments job to collect taxes to assist the poor, unemployed, and provide federal programs to better the life of Americans. This, sadly, is where Libertarianism fails me. :(

What.. exactly is libertarianism, anyway? I have yet to figure that out.
