  1. Just waiting for Amity Shlaes book. Perhaps it will resonate. I just noted the nonsense from previously conservative Orin Hatch who now hates libertarians. He’s not a true conservative anymore, just a guy who’s stayed around too long and is a captive of special interests. Too bad.

    • Dave, thank you! Briefly, have you seen the interview with Sen. DeMint in the current “reason” magazine? I could scare up a link. He makes the case that conservatives, libertarians and Tea >Partiers have more in common than they think and that they ought to join forces. Makes sense to me!
