Libertarians for Obama


Obamatarians? Whatever you want to call them, they’re well represented in a Reason survey. It’s certainly understandable that Obama, or really any liberal Democrat, would appeal to a certain type of libertarian. But a few of the contributors take the view that an Obama victory would generate a more libertarian Republican party, and that strikes me as fanciful–close to the opposite of what is likely to happen if Obama wins.

Kudos to several of the contributors for rejecting the tasteless question about which former president they would most like to see waterboarded; I was sorry to see Grover Norquist’s answer.
