Being an Atheist I visit many atheists sites and also being a libertarian I visit many liberty sites and I find very few people that I agree with on both issues.
Why is it that so many atheists are statists?
And why is it that so many more religious people are libertarians?
It seems to me that theists worship gods and most atheists worship government.
Why is that?
Could the main problem be that both are lacking knowledge in one area?
This is what I believe and have found talking to many atheists and religious folks.
Liberty Rising: Westminster Ends Bid To Ban Tobacco Sales After Outcry
November 19, 2014 6:37 PM
WESTMINSTER (CBS/AP) — A proposal that would have made the town the first in the nation to ban all tobacco sales has gone up in smoke.
Westminster’s board of health voted 2-1 to drop the proposal at its regular meeting on Wednesday, a week after rowdy opposition led board members to end a public hearing early.

Few have been paying attention to the “supporting actor” trials now paving the way for the main act in the prosecution of America’s largest terrorist act since 9/11, the Boston Bombing.
They’re worth paying attention to, for what they demonstrate about how the government is ensuring that the official story will stick all the way through to conviction.
The use of so-called "restraints", or what in prisons the same instruments would be called "shackles", is abhorrent. Especially when used 23 out of 24 hours on a person.
The blood clot that began in his leg and passed into his lung, killing him, would not have happened if he had not been shackled.
The bright side of this story is the comments. It seems people in the Boston area agree that this is not the right way to dispense health care:

"According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, sovereign citizens are anti-government extremists who believe that even though they physically reside in this country, they are separate or “sovereign” from the United States. As a result, they believe they don’t have to answer to any government authority, including courts, taxing entities, motor vehicle departments or law enforcement."

The last time Elizabeth Warren was asked about her views on the Israeli attack on Gaza – on July 17 – she, as Rania Khalek put it, “literally ran away” without answering. But last week, the liberal Senator appeared for one of her regularly scheduled “office hours” with her Massachusetts constituents, this one in Hyannis, and, as a local paper reported, she had nowhere to run.
This is why zero-tolerance policies are ridiculous.

A Military Fiance Returns To Her Car To Find A Hate-Filled and Threatening Letter On Her Windshield
I would certainly hope the letter writer wasn't anyone that's been on this website. Given the overall intelligence level I've seen in my time here, I would be shocked if it was.
Edit: This is the type of thing that the MSM can/will use to bash "libertarians", even though the letter writer obviously (to us) isn't one.
The Supreme Judicial Court Wednesday said that because voters decriminalized small amounts of marijuana in 2008, police officers in Massachusetts can no longer rely on the odor of unburnt marijuana to justify searching a person’s car.
In two unanimous rulings, the state’s highest court said they had already decided in 2011 that the odor of smoked marijuana by itself did not provide police with probable cause to stop people on the street or search the vehicles people are riding in.
'Cause why NOT run a proven loser again ?
