It might be time for "defenders of liberty to abandon the GOP" or it might not, but that's not really what Andrew McCarthy is actually writing about in his article, is it?

He's not making his appeal to people whose chief concern is small government or greater personal freedom, is he?

You could argue that concern about Islamism is pro-liberty, but what McCarthy is talking about isn't really what a lot of people are discussing here.

Forgive me if I'm reading you wrong, but are you a libertarian?  Becausse according to your statment, I have a premontion that we're about to hear from you that we must strongly support the liberty of those that practice Islam for the sake of everyone's religious freedom (even though the facist doctrine of Islam forbids the practice of any other religion except Islam), and that Andrew McCarthy is some kind of statist.

Quote from the article:

""The Obama administration and the Republican establishment would have us live a lie - a lie that endangers our liberties and our security. The lie is this: There is a difference between mainstream Islamic ideology and what they call "violent extremism.""

Do you dissagree with McCarthy's synopsis here?
