George Will had this to say on This Week:
"Well, actually, there is a rising Libertarian stream that Chris Christie has said is a very dangerous thought. So let's be clear about what Libertarianism is and what it is not. It is not anarchism. It has a role for government. What Libertarianism says, it comes in many flavors and many degrees of severity, it basically says before the government abridges the freedom of an individual or the freedom of several individuals contracting together, that government ought to have: A, a compelling reason, and; B, a Constitutional warrant for doing so."
Is that really what libertarianism is? Really? If so then you can count on a strong majority of the three hundred odd million of us to vote for Rand Paul, because this is pretty much what every single American with a modicum of interest in public life believes.
The other option is that Will has no clue what he's talking about when he opines on libertarianism but that seems implausible, so the logical answer is he's another politico that sees a big chance coming up to get some power.
