Ballot Initiative

Mike, My phone number is 415 305 8755.

I like the idea of gong with the pure Linertarian arguemenet for curb
rights. The pure thing is often irresisably attrsctive, and a lot mor
fun to articulate.

You know all the comprimises we sometime make to get any progress
against the drug war. Well I will never forget one Libertarian meeting
in Arkansas. We meet at Vino's Pozza. About the only truly cool place
in Little Rock. It,s in a plain rundown storefront in a rundown part
of downtown. They microbrew beer and apple cider. and frequently host
local garage bands. a nice mixture of aging redneck hippies and young
post punks. Anyway, this one guy comes in, a farmer type from the
country, must be about 70 years onld nad in his Arkie drawl, spiced
with occasional wpithet, he laid out like a golden talisman, the
perdect Libertarian line on the legalization of all drugs. It was a
thing of beuty. Pure as driven snow. Made my day.

Michael, In the interest of full disclosure, I do think the government
has a legitimate role in enforcing contracts and using it's power to
prevent or punish fraud, theft, inter personal violence, and reckless
endangerment of oters property and person. For that reason, the
government may have a role in ensuring public safety and seeing that
rider driver contracts are enforceable. I realize there are
theoretically non government solutions to these issues.
