Quote Of The Day

by @ Monday, September 1st, 2008. Filed under 2008 Election, Bob Barr, John McCain, Politics, The Liberty Papers

Brad Warbiany, one of my co-bloggers at The Liberty Papers, on why libertarian Republicans shouldn’t feel guilty about voting against John McCain, even if it does throw the election to Obama: The Republican party doesn’t believe they need to satisfy the libertarian wing of their coalition.

It’s Time For Separation Of Marriage And State

As Coontz notes, the idea that all marriages must […]
