Buck talks about the beauty of American Government in this post: Competing Principles.
American Government --and our culture-- is all about balancing power and resolving conflicts between competing "rights". Our political differences are largely differences about where those conflicts should be resolved: by individuals, by families, by local gov, states, the feds. Buck understands. It's surprising how many miss the concept today since we all learn about the balance-of-power in Jr. High.
