    There is a difference between violent chaos (which we normally call “anarchy”) and anarcho-capitalism. Please do more research before failing to look informed. You look like a troll. You lose one internets.

    I have felt for some time that the GOP’s religion based policies, especially where individual choices are made, often act as the single area in which they have been hypocrites. As of the last two decades, the conservative notions of blocking any marriage system that isn’t between a single man and woman, censorship regarding the nation’s symbols, and prohibition have seemed behind the times and unfair to people who just want to live their lives unlike some paragon model of Christian society. How fair was it that I can become intoxicated on one substance but not the other when the long term risks are as relatively severe as the other? Why shouldn’t I have a husband or two, three, nineteen wives and two husbands? Before anyone tries to answer the question in there head (mostly because I have an economics based answer and it was also rhetorical) the real question that the GOP should be asking is why should we care if it would never have an effect on me?

    The point of liberty was to allow people a sandbox of decisions and subjective choices of happiness. Progressives, statists, and the men of system are too busy trying to choose the options that we can pick from. This is the inherent flaw in their arguments. Unfortunately, the GOP has gone down this path by not recognizing its time. Conservatism is about bringing slow change. The time to accept socially accepted mores and norms is here. If we want to be the part of the upcoming wave we must work with the swell.

    Nick Gillespie is the man. I read a lot of his articles and watch his videos through Reason Magazine. I hope that Glenn et al. invite him to the show more often, if ever at all. His Libertarian views would hold as a consistent and fair challenge to Glenn’s Conservatarian stances.
