“Almost assuredly different than yours.” is what my profile on Facebook states, but whenever I’m asked–which is never–I describe myself as a “libertarian federalist.” People should be allowed to govern themselves with as few or as many laws as they like, so long as those laws are as geographically restricted to as narrow a degree as humanly possible. National laws, of which there should be a very few, take precedence over state laws, which take precedence over state laws–after which come the laws of a county, then a town. The vast majority of laws a citizen would be subject to should come at the level of something like a homeowner’s association.
Most people hate their homeowner’s association, so that feels about right.
Which was OK with me.

Kinda Related Update: VDH “The country is divided in a 1859/1968 mode”.
Divided, and much like 1859, getting most of its information via a new medium of communication.
Neo Isolationism: Maybe it’s the hangover talking, but if we just let Russia and Iran do as they wished in their near-abroad, wouldn’t they end up at each others’ throats sooner rather than later?
