    Hi everyone,

    Hope you guys aren't all statists, because that will be a problem for a libertarian like me who believes in a limited constitutional Republic. I am a college student studying in Southern California who loves politics, computers, and music. Unforunately, I hate the way this country is heading and I fear for my future. I am one of those kids and grandkids whose future you old folks claim you are saving :tongue:

    In short, I support free market Austrian economics, advocate noninterventionist foreign policies, appreciate high skepticism of government, and demand liberty across the board. But we need to be practical about how we go about doing it.nLooking forward to debating all that with everyone here!

    Welcome aboard. We got plenty of firepower from both the left and right around here, and things do get a little testy.

    Welcome!

    Like anywhere else, most folks around here are caught up in the left/right/Democrat/Republican/Coke/Pepsi nonsense, but there's a fair number of us libertarians around.
