Libertarians for Republicans
I have pushed back repeatedly at Volokh Conspiracy in recent threads where the Republican Party, on balance of evil grounds, is deemed more libertarian. The arguments are repeatedly selective and tedious. Both parties are somewhat libertarian on certain issues. Clear. On balance, Obama is more so (less clear, but on points, yes). I'll put that aside to say that the "libertarian" leaning Republican underlines why so many are cynical about them as a whole.
