Bob Barr - Libertarian

Bob Barr, conservative Georgia Republican, announced today that he was joining the Libertarian party.

My thoughts: Increasingly conservatives are becoming dissatisfied with actions of the Republican party. Why?

  1. Runaway, seemingly unrestrained, government spending
  2. A sense that Republicans have "sold out" to special interests be it big business or the religious right
  3. A sense that Republicans are not the party of reform or ethics.

As for me, I am still a registered Republican. No matter what party you claim (or if you are an independent), the "Are you a Libertarian" quiz is interesting (and compelling)!
