Somehow this libertarian doesn’t see libertarianism as part of the conservative movement, but a movement of its own. Conservatives embrace government to one degree or another while libertarians reject government to varying degrees. This is a crucial difference.
That said, the LP should welcome libertarian leaning conservatives. They should be the minority though. It should be the conservatives holding their noses about libertarian positions they don’t like when supporting our candidates. That the situation is now reversed and libertarians have to hold their noses about many of Mr. Barr’s positions is unacceptable.
Even worse, Bob Barr’s record exposes him to be more of a neoconservative, not a traditional conservative like Ron Paul.
