Libertarian GOP Defection?

Posted in at 17:51 by RjZ

RealClearPolitics has one man’s opinion on the course of libertarians over the last forty years. I thought it was interesting to cite the connections between liberals and libertarians, especially if you read the comments on Matt Stone’s quote below.

Personally I’ve always been more fond of the connection of libertarian to liberal than the, as described here, rather recent, connection of libertarian to republican so this article adds a nice perspective. It’s especially important when we notice that even fiscally conservative and socially conservative republicans ought to be questioning the Bush administrations don’t-tax-(the rich), spend-anyway policy.
