Yeah, and Gover did write for a libertarian magazine in college. That
the social conservatives don't like him is a plus to me, and should be
to libertarians. No, he isn't 'pure', and I'd doubt he'd pass a litmus
test, but frankly such standards are useless in practical politics.
It's easiest to ride the freedom train as far as others are willing to
take it, then slog your own way from there with whoever else is
willing. Don't pass up a free or easier ride just cause you think the
conductor has a bad attitude.
Nor is ATR a shill for republicans. It is ripping on Ahnuld in Kali
because he hasn't been focusing on lowering taxes and spending.
