Libertarians: You Will Be Very Sorry When We Are Gone

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Are you kidding?

Do these people have any idea how many people have been repulsed and alienated by their dominance in the Republican Party? There isn’t a bigger electoral albatross for the GOP than the libertarian oligarchs.

“A recent guest column in the Dallas Morning News offers new evidence that Conservatism, Inc. is bent on destroying conservative populism. The piece also underscores the primary streams of money in American politics: Trillions of dollars flow to progressives, billions flow to libertarians, and millions—on a good day—flow into the conservative populist movement.

The column is headlined “By supporting Trumpism, the GOP is in danger of losing libertarian support,” with the subtitle adding that “Many libertarians split from the party to vote for Biden.” The authors are Daniel Smith, an associate professor of economics at Middle Tennessee State University and director of the Political Economy Research Institute, and Alexander Salter, an associate professor of economics at Texas Tech University and a research fellow at Texas Tech’s Free Market Institute. But these two professors are not some random intellectuals. They are part of a billion-dollar machine, built to produce paid-for ideas.

The Political Economy Research Institute was established with seed money from the Charles Koch Foundation. And the Free Market Institute, per a 2016 investigation by the Texas Observer, is “largely bankrolled by the Koch network and other conservative interests and individuals.”

To be clear: the Dallas Morning News column is not an analysis. It is a threat. And the threat has nothing to do with libertarians ever becoming a viable political party, because they won’t. Instead, it’s about Conservatism, Inc., backed by libertarian billionaires, deciding that Democrats are preferable to “Trumpist” Republicans. …”


Libertarians are between 10% to 20% of the population? Since when?

Dallas News:

The American right has been a coalition of libertarians and traditionalists, united against the common foe of a domineering and unaccountable government. Now the ties that bind are fraying. In the aftermath of the 2020 election, there is a real chance they could be severed entirely.

Rather than exhibiting self-reflection and admitting their role in allowing Trumpism to take over their party, some Republicans are instead blaming libertarians for their electoral defeat. But the libertarian rejection of Trump is not about one man. It is about the direction of American conservatism itself. Republicans may permanently lose the libertarian voting bloc if they fail to learn their lesson.

The libertarian problem is much bigger than Republicans realize. The official libertarian vote exceeded Biden’s margin of victory in several key states. Furthermore, public opinion data shows that libertarians represent between 10% and 20% of the voting population, according to Cato Institute analysis. By demonizing libertarians, Republicans are shooting themselves in the foot.

Let ’em go.

We will move into the Big House.
