And libertarians filling the list with detailed nit-picking arguments
about how the poor half of the nation might have to let sick children
die because they can't afford medical bills and the state shouldn't

(That's only one of many turnoffs!)
Libertarianism enthusiasts ruin any chance of appealing to the public.
