Silence sometimes speaks volumes. Do correct me if I am mistaken in any way here (LOL), but whether you realize it or not, giving corporations the same rights as individuals, especially concerning campaign contributions will open the door to the worst government / corporate corruption and influence in our history IMO.
And it's already well underway.
You (recovering interventionist neocons turned "libertarian") speak of individual (human) freedom, but your actions appear to promote corporate rule.
I think the push for "small government" is intended to sugar coat this very bitter pill.
I am for medium size government, separation of church and state and limited corporate control... in other words, a radical.
How do you think my POV differs from that of the constitutional framers?
