Common Sense Political Positioning

Over at Reason.com, in advising President Obama : “Don’t Bash the Chamber of Commerce”, Terry Michael, a self proclaimed “Libertarian Democrat” suggests:

The government should assure liberty by staying as far away as possible from our bank accounts, our bedrooms, and our bodies. Spread pluralistic democracy and free markets by example, understanding that neither can be planted by force on political real estate lacking indigenous cultivators for their growth. Restore the moral authority of mid-20th century civil rights, fashioning public policy around individuals, not tribal identity groups.

If only there were a few such rational and sensible people in Congress.
