Via Nate, Uncensored:
Libertarians should be concerned about Bob Barr’s candidacy, for he could end up taking the Libertarian Party in a direction that would turn that party into something like the “Republican Lite” party. As a Republican, Barr consistently supported his party’s socially authoritarian policies, often in defiance of the clear letter of the Constitution (that free exercise clause, remember). He has recanted those positions now, but how much of that is honest repentance and how much is political calculation? That’s for Libertarians to ultimately decide, but I remain skeptical.
There really isn’t anything to be skeptical about. It so blatantly obvious that Barr is pulling the wool over the eyes of naive “libertarians” that skepticism has lost its relevance
