"Let’s be clear: the Libertarian Party is my only political party. Flirtations with the Ron Paul Revolution aside, I’ve only ever had one party affiliation. I don’t consider most Republicans to be that close to libertarianism. I really don’t — I think elected Republicans are fiscally irresponsible, utterly wrong on foreign policy, and terrible on social issues. I don’t see much they have in common with Libertarians, besides their lip service to the words 'smaller government' and 'low taxes' which none of them seem to actually be interested in acting on — oh, and a little lust for gun rights, unless the gun owner is a black man from Minnesota who gets murdered by a police officer. But, in fairness, I do understand why Libertarians go to the Republican Party to try to impact it." (07/07/17)
