I don't know if you're being sarcastic...

...but that's entirely true. I'm an anarcho-capitalist myself, but there's absolutely no hope of convincing a neocon to support such things, it's a waste of time. First convert him to a moderate libertarian/Constitutional conservative. When the US government is returned to its Constitutional role, then we can talk about going further toward minarchism or anarcho-capitalism.

It's funny actually, the talk about supporting Rand requiring one to compromise one's principles. The people who say this apparently don't realize that for a lot of libertarians, voting for RON requires us to compromise our principles, as even he is advocating for more government than we would like.

As long as we're moving toward liberty, I'm not going to give up a chance for a big step in the hopes of an unrealistic giant leap. So I for one will continue supporting people like Ron, people like Rand, even people less-libertarian if that's all we have available.

We need to be big-tent libertarians.
