The theory is that if you continue to go to the right as most libertarians do, you arrive at the left. Libertarians were writing about Bush as though he was becoming an Orwellian removing their constitutional rights by the numbers. Then they railed against wars of nation building in Iraq and Afghanistan. After four years of Obama and nationalized health care, continued wars of nation building since 2008 , just after three years in Iraq, and continuing in Afghanistan, we now know that we should all chill because our current president really does resemble a libertarian come full circle.
Mr. Chapman, legalized drugs, prostitution, and winking at liberalized politics is not what you get from conservatives. It's libertarian.
