Genaire:

“Libertarian. The radical notion that you are not the property of anyone else, including the government.” – Tony Baize (All individuals have the right to exercise sole dominion over their own lives, and have the right to live in whatever manner they choose, so long as they do not forcibly interfere with the equal right of others to live in whatever manner they choose.)
