In this week’s “radio address” (slightly late due to maintenance at the Gcast site) Steve Kubby discusses former Congressman Bob Barr’s decision to join the Libertarian Party (and the Marijuana Policy Project):
I’m sure that Congressman Barr’s ideas about what it means to be a libertarian are very different from mine … and that’s okay. We come from different backgrounds. Our views have been formed from very different life experiences. There are almost certainly things we still disagree on, and there probably always will be.
BUT! We don’t have to agree on everything. Stick two libertarians in a room, give them something to argue about, and they’ll come out of that room with THREE different opinions.
At the end of the day, Bob Barr and I agree that government is too big, too expensive, too powerful, too intrusive.
At the end of the day, Bob Barr and I agree that something needs to be done to reduce the size, power and scope of government.
And since we agree on those two things, I don’t see any reason why we shouldn’t work together to make America a better, freer nation.
Welcome to the Party, Congressman Barr.
