The only reasonable view in America today is to become a Libertarian. Unfortunately, Libertarians don't have a chance in hell of getting into office because they would disrupt the Republico-Democrato Machine.
Libertarian values: You can do what you want, marry whomever you want, smoke what you want, as long as you aren't hurting anyone. You can do what you want as long as you don't expect me to pay for your crap. Libertarians want to pay for reasonable govt institutions like Military (defense), roads, judges, police, etc. Then, tell those other govt. MFs to get out of our lives.
