Libertarian Republican reports on an astonishing statement by Illinois Senator Elect Mark Kirk.
"Tonight I stand before you as a fiscal conservative, a social moderate, and a national security hawk."Wow! Another addition to the libertarian wing of the Republican Party. Libertarian Republican goes on to say:
Congratulations to the new Republican Senator from the State of Illinois, from the fiscally conservative, socially moderate, national security hawk wing of the GOP.Another video for your amusement: Gonna Win - We're Taking Over.
Note - Kirk is a 20-year Veteran of the United States Military.
See - Breitbart Video of Kirk's victory speech.
I first became a Libertarian in 1988 when I voted for Ron Paul for President. By 2000 I had been Secretary/Treasurer of the local Libertarian club for 3 years. The 9/11 "event" caused me to become a libertarian Republican because the Libertarian Party was nuts on national defense.
We have come a long way baby. From a fringe movement to regular mentions in the national press. Along with a few Senators and Congressmen. I hope to live long enough to see a libertarian Republican President.
