<I neglected to mention that I would only support wage enhancement as a replacement for all other welfare programs.>

That is certainly a good start, in my opinion.

<Well, I think you are wrong. And this is not a minor quibble. The Republican agenda is much more in line with Libertarianism than the Democrat agenda. It is not even close.>

As I said, I am an idealist and pretty much a stickler. I think that both major parties spend too much time finding ways of removing freedoms and/or forcing their opinions about what is "right" for me in an effort to make things better. But then, it doesn't bug me that you think that I am wrong. :o) And you are right, this is not a minor quibble and one of the reasons why, no matter how many libertarian ideas that the Republicans have on their platform I will not jump on the party bandwagon. Doesn't mean I won't vote for an occasional Rep. on a local level (or Dem. for that matter) where party politics are less of a concern and representation might actually mean something.
