It pains me to quarrel with Libertarians because we are indispensable allies in the struggle for limited government, liberty, low taxes and reduced regulation domestically. If Republicans (or Libertarians) propose to cut income tax rates, privatize Social Security, or repeal and replace Obamacare, will Libertarians (or Republicans) undermine the other because we disagree about foreign policy?
I hope not. Our freedom, prosperity, and, yes, military strength depend on getting it right at home. Let’s achieve the libertarian dream of limited government so that ordinary Americans can exercise appropriate oversight of our military and foreign policy. Maybe we can agree on that.
