I am a lover of liberty. Man can only achieve greatness when he is free to do so. I am an Objectivist, and an unrepentant believer in Capitalism and the free market economy. It is the free market economy that has given the average man the resources to reach his full potential if he chooses to seek it. Government has its place, and that is in the protection of individual rights. Only an individual can determine what is best for him or her. As long as that individual does not violate another s rights, I say they have the right to do as they please.
