That was well done. I’ll remember that trick for my own use. I almost lost it.

In the Podcast, Jon observes that he can tell the real libertarians from the Republicans based on the vehemence of their objections to his game-theory case for voting Democratic.

As one of the the most vehement objectors to this idea in the comments section of the post in which he lays out his case ("The One (Party) Ring"), I admit to taking this comment personally.

I would like to point out that HE is the one who is advocating that libertarians should throw our weight behind one particular party, and yet no one that I know of has questioned his libertarian credentials or accused him of being a closet partisan.

In the same comments section, I wrote the following:
I think that OrneryWP has a better idea: libertarians should rally around individual candidates of either party who are willing to make solid and specific commitments to support at least some parts of our agenda.
In the Podcast, McQ takes exactly this same position.

It seems to me that most of us who disagree with Jon on this issue are taking the position that libertarians ought to be voting for liberty on an issue-by-issue, candidate-by-candidate basis, across party lines, and Jon is trying to dismiss us all as closet Republicans.

There is a sort of game-theory case to be made for voting libertarian on an ad hoc basis, across party lines, but it will take me some time to fully lay it out. I don’t have that time, or the patience, to do it tonight, so that argument will have to wait until the next time this subject arises.

No. I specifically said that libertarians came to different conclusions on the question of where libertarians should go at the moment. The distinguishing factor between libertarians and those who claimed ’libertarian’ but were more dedicated to being Republican was the nature of their objection. Libertarians can make a case either way; Republicans are offended at the mere notion that libertarians might not support the Republican Party.

Actually, Jon is pointing out that libertarians are already seen as throwing our weight behind one particular party, and it’s a party that doesn’t seem to give us anything in return. He is suggesting that if the GOP is disabused of the notion that they have the libertarian vote locked up, the two major parties may actually start courting us.
