Bob Barr's Libertarian Colors Shine at CPAC

While many consider Barr's Presidential candidacy a conservative/neoconservative Trojan Horse, he demonstrates at CPAC that he is committed to the rule of law. During a debate titled "Does Security Trump Freedom?", Barr debates the Neocons on torture and civilian trials for terror suspects. Once the subject of waterboarding came up, the booing started but surprising enough the moderator kept it civil. My favorite part in the video is when he asks point blank; "How would you like to be waterboarded? Try that!” The statist right is going to be a tougher nut to crack than the the statist left but if we keep applying the pressure we will break it.
