WHY A LIBERTARIAN SUPPORTS ROMNEY:  Well known libertarian law professor Brad Smith explains why he supports Mitt Romney over Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson.  Smith explains:

Today’s libertarian oriented Tea Parties are middle-aged men and women who came of age with the pro-freedom rhetoric of Ronald Reagan.

Romney may not be a libertarian, yet Romney not infrequently launches wonderful verbal defenses of hard core libertarian views. I can scarcely imagine another major party presidential candidate who would take on leftist hecklers about the rights of individuals organized using the corporate form; or defend the value of being able to fire people for incompetence; worry openly about individual dependency on government; or demand that voters “take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”

So next week, this libertarian will be voting Romney. No regrets, no doubts.

This libertarian agrees whole-heartedly.
