So as some of you have probably noticed, I've got a quasi-libertarian thing going on here. Andrew had a link to Bob Barr, and though I know I'm voting for Obama, I decided to take a look. It's all very nice, except one thing--the dude is against gay marriage. I lost all respect for everything he said after that. On one level it's just hypocritical--either you want government out of your life or you don't. Then on another level it sounds eerily familiar. It's like no government interference, liberty for all--except those people who make me uncomfortable. Anyway, roll tape.
