Are Conservatives Starting To Become Scared?

It's getting to be that time again; another presidential election in which the two main choices don't show a dime's worth of difference between each other. Like clockwork, conservatives are trying to get libertarians on their side to support their statist. In enter Kurt Schlichter of Breitbart who makes a pathetic plea for libertarians to support the constitution.

Adam Kokesh of Adam vs. The Man delivers a nice rebuttal of it

The basic differences between Liberals, Conservatives and Libertarians

Credit goes to Lawerence Vance of lewrockwell.com for posting it on his blog

Libertarian: The government's sole function is the protection of private property. There are very few persons who adhere to this philosophy. A few with this philosophy waste much of their time trying to convince others to believe the same. They won't succeed.

Conservative: The government needs to be all powerful, and to support our morality and way of life. Nothing is beyond its grasp. Government power is god given through the constitution, the 10 commandments, and biblical scripture. No other proof is necessary. This is the white-man's burden.

Liberal: The government needs to take from anyone who has more that someone else and make us all equal. We need the government to take care of the young, the old, and middle aged and to promote love between one another. This we know from our heart.

Another Phony Libertarian Leaves the Party

A little faith has been restored for those who are trying restore liberty in the Libertarian Party. LewRockwell.com has reported that Wayne Allyn Root is quitting the Libertarian Party and will be running for the US Senate as a Republican. His farewell letter has been published on independent political report for those who wish to read it.

All I can say is good riddance, since after the 2008 election, Root has been nothing but a conservative kiss ass. While Ron Paul never stopped preaching his message of liberty and peace, Root stayed away from topics that ruffled conservative feathers like our moronic foreign policy. Thus Root became another person in the guise of Neal Boortz and Eric Dondero, one who calls himself a libertarian to show that one is anti-establishment but when shows their true colors when faced with the tough issues. Granted to be fair I've yet to read any libertarian writer who actually considers Dondero anything other than a soft neoconservative. With Root finally gone, LP leadership has a chance to actually have a libertarian in a leadership position. The attempts to woo conservatives (and liberals for that matter) has failed, there are just some people that can't be reached and LP leadership has to see this.
