I somewhat admire him because he is a man of principle, but I think his policies are simpleminded and disagree with almost all of them.
OK simpleminded is not a good adjective. My bad for not thinking through what I posted. I think unrealistic and idealistic might be better, which I feel describes alot of the Libertarian thinking. For instance (you will love this) End the Fed, well it turns out the Fed does a pretty good job of fiscal policy and before there was a central bank the US economy went through frequent booms and busts. The Fed might be messy and secretive and conflcts with the Liberterian principles but it has been effective. Another example is his debate answer on how to pay for medical care for people who can't afford it. His answer was that charities used to do when he was a doctor. Well, that method no longer works as medical care is much too expensive now to think that local charities can pick up he tab for people who can't it.
Of course his answer was much better than the audience members who cheered on the let them die policy.

Obama also NEVER wrote anything at HARVARD .
You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.
