Interesting points Dr. Dave.

I was going to say that I'm socially progressive libertarian who happens to be a gun enthusiast.

I view most things in practical terms. Like welfare for instance, I have to look at it as an investment in keeping my family & property safe. If we were to suddenly eliminate it, don't you think the crime rate would skyrocket? I don't like it, but it's a fact of life that there are always going to be bottom feeders who can't or won't fend for themselves. So I say the State should take care of the problem. Even if it means just throwing money at it. It's an "insurance" policy of sorts against anarchy.

Government services are great for most and there will always be folks who think and expect to do things better for themselves. But c'mon, who is going to build a better interstate freeway? Self-sufficient citizens, or the Government? - again, it's just a matter of practicality.

And practicality tells me, that my best defense against violence, is my firearm.

Those big-city dwellers have very little common-sense practicality. Now, I have no idea how gun-grabbing specimens like Hilary Clinton get produced. I'm more in line with good RKBA democrats like Jim Webb, or Jon Tester.
