The GOP-e has failed miserabley in the last two election cycles since they kicked the Libertarians off the bus. Gone are hundreds of thousands of mostly young voters that would be for small government and more personal responsibility.
"If you analyze it I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism. I think conservatism is really a misnomer just as liberalism is a misnomer for the liberals. The basis of conservatism is a desire for less government interference or less centralized authority or more individual freedom and this is a pretty general description also of what libertarianism is".
RONALD REAGAN, Reason Magazine, Jul. 1, 1975
Is that the same Reagan that wRong Paul called a “miserable failure”?
