Enemy of the People: Liberterianism of the Pauls
An article in yesterday's Washington Post makes clear a key swing voting group that must be swayed if the Democrats are to win in 2012: Libertarians. They must be convinced the personal liberty is not well served by cutting taxes on the rich and starving public investment. Personal liberty is not served by such "small government" and has nothing to do with how oppressive the government can be. On the contrary, by wrecking the economy in the long term, it will dis-empower people in their personal lives. We need to make clear that the small government mania is far more of a threat to the future of the republic than Al Qaeda ever was.
