Jorgensen wouldn't sign either bill. "Let the people keep their money," she says. "Let them decide who should stay in business and who shouldn't."

Absolutely agree with the first part of this. The second part is problematic though, because the government is actively driving some of these businesses out. The entire reason all of these various 'licenses' to do business exist is go give government overwhelming power over various businesses.

She points out that government is not as good as individuals at deciding where money should go. "Government money usually goes to their friends and special interests and lobbyists."

This is absolutely true.

For myself, I'm inclined to give Trump another term. However, in general, voting democrat and republican is not really helping our nation. Giving someone else a go would be a nice change of pace.

I haven't looked yet, but I'm quite sure this thread will be chock full of insults towards libertarians in general. Most folks who lean libertarian that I know also tend to lean more to the conservative side of things on most subjects. The reflexive insults is not really a good way to make friends with those folks.
