Which party?

Howard Phillips of the U.S. Taxpayer’s Party (a faith-based political party) makes an important observation.
Throughout history there have been three political parties – one is the party that believes in the sovereignty of God (and [Phillips] works with such a party, the U.S. Taxpayers Party); the other is a party which believes in the sovereignty of man and man’s reason - (and libertarians are of that view); and the third is every other party which believes in the sovereignty of the state – that the state is God walking on Earth.
Which of the three do you support?

There is no problem in believing in the sovereignty of God, the problem begins when we try to determine from this is we should raise or lower taxes. Or have taxes at all.

It's a rather unhelpful approach to politics.

So given these three, it's the libertarians. But of course, I don't believe in just three choices.

Christ Berend, I thought you had the answers for everything.

I'll vote for man and reason.
