“No one joins the Libertarian Party because they love winning elections so much. Libertarianism as an abstract philosophy of limited government and maximum freedom is broadly appealing. Unfortunately, libertarianism as an actual political party is best represented by that fat guy stripping on stage during their 2016 nominating convention. [Chase] Oliver is likely to be a more amiable candidate — really good odds of never sticking out his tongue the entire campaign — but he still is advocating for some policies that will be a hard sell.” [editor’s note: Geraghty seems to be suggesting that we change our positions to look like the authoritarian positions of the Rs and Ds. Thanks, but no thanks – TLK] (05/30/24)
