A Memo To Republicans From Your Suspicious Libertarian Friends

I posted over at United Liberty: Here we stand in 2010 and the Republicans are asking fiscal conservatives and libertarians to trust them again. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me three times ? No, you’re going to have to prove it this time before I trust you. […]

Just under two years out, Mitt Romney is the prohibitive favorite in the Granite State’s GOP primary: One of the biggest blows to Mitt Romney’s hopes for being the 2008 Republican Presidential nominee was his losing the neighboring state of New Hampshire. Right now it doesn’t look like that would be a problem for him […]
