Whoa!

Talk about painting with too broad a brush. Mark, I hate being the Great Defender of the ‘Toids, but I think it’s really unfair to say that “utopian libertarians” — which I read as “pretty much all libertarians” — are unpatriotic or disloyal let alone dismissive of the constitution. Some of the most passionate defenders of the constitution I know are hardcore libertarians. Some of them talk about “Mr. Jefferson this” and “Mr. Jefferson that” to the point where you have to remind them that Mr. Jefferson is dead. My friend Ron Bailey preaches “libertarianism in one state” precisely because he considers America a shining city on a hill.
