So you really think fines and lotteries could pay for things like road maintenance?

roads should be maintained by the private sector. there is no reason for the government to maintain roads.

Well I'm wondering how else you guys are going to end the Drug War? Only Libertarians seem to be dedicated to that task.

I seriously doubt Democrats will end it. Even when they say they will, like Carter, it turns out to be a lie. And of course Republicans love the Drug War. I wouldnt vote for any party that wants to jail me.

Both major parties are pouring money into the Drug War, but Libertarians aren't the only party dedicated to ending it. The Green Party has also denounced the Drug War, and is fighting to end it.

The green party also wants to take away much of our economic freedom. I would never stand for that.

Quite a few heavyweight conservatives have come out against the drug war. WF Buckley and George Schultz to name a few.

I might vote Libertarian if I can't stand either of the mainstream candidates.
