Keeping Capitalism off the Endangered Species List

I have been a Republican voter for as long as I remember.  However, I am beginning to lean more and more towards the Libertarian Party. You see, I believe that too much government is a bad thing whether the government is run my liberals or conservatives. For example, whether you are for or against gay rights, too much government can come back to haunt you. On one hand, if political opinion happend to be anti gay rights, a strong handed government could arrest people for being gay. On the other hand, a strong hanged government could arrest pastors for hate speech when they speak out against gay marriage. Both scenarios are scary to me.  When it comes down to election time, I will vote for the candidate least likely to increase government’s power. If your answer to any issue begins with “The government should” then you are probably wrong.
