Classical liberalism = libertarianism

Modern "liberalism" is typically socialism. Those are my definitions.
Government commands against Catholic teaching are supernaturally unlawful and thus can be resisted. However, lawful commands which are stupid ought to be obeyed in most cases, or authority breaks down in society. Authority IS a good thing - even small gov't libertarians recognize that authorities can lawfully protect against and prosecute theft, murder, etc. I was posting this for Catholics who might think that Ron Paul is the answer, when he is deficient on many issues. Catholics make up about 25% of the population, hence maybe 1/4 or less of users - this will fluctuate. Questioning authority and getting answers on things a person doesn't understand is ok. Doubting and disobeying authority can be the road to violent anarchy.
