I'd Rather Be A Republican

I'd rather be a Republican. I'll have more effect moving that party an inch in my direction, than I would have moving the Libertarians a mile.

Milton Friedman was a Republican. He often said that he was in very good harmony with the Libertarians. Yet he was a Republican.

Any idea why?

I've spent years trying to move the Republicans from inside, and I've just about given up.

Why was Milton Friedman a Republican? Well, because for years the snide theory has been that all Libertarians are just Republicans who want to smoke pot.

We have a really hard time convincing people that we are a legitimate school of governmental thought.

I'm thrilled to see Libertarians become more visible. I know it'll take a few years, but I'm betting we'll be more and more of an actual force to be reckoned with.
