Comment: My trouble believing him

My trouble believing him

is that he's been saying he leans libertarian for sooooo long. There's a more typical timeframe between looking into libertarianism seriously and coming around and he's long exceeded it by still managing to justify supporting Santorum and Romney.

He has too many markers of being a gate-keeper, to keep a segment of the population that would otherwise be exploring libertarianism more seriously content to think they won't have to do the scary work of truly questioning their whole paradigm if they just hang onto him a little longer. And then there he'll be, when another election rolls around, to convince them that more of the same is the best they can hope for. When we get through a general election without him shilling for he establishment, I'll take him seriously.

Defend Liberty!
