Steve Olson has a good post on why the Republican party is losing the support of libertarians. An excerpt:
The Republican Party is crumbling. They lost congress in 2006 and will lose more ground in 2008 because they offer nothing new, nothing original, and nothing positive. We have seen the party of entrepreneurship, small government, and personal freedom become the party of fear, war, and police power. After the party leaders mocked, sneered, and cackled at those of us who believe in a limited constitutional republic, they now ask us to hold our nose and support John McCain.
It’s worth reading the whole post, especially for the list of reasons he opposes McCain, chief among them his plans to stay in Iraq for 100 years and his plans for new wars.
