John, you have hit on a major problem with the “liberaltarians” discussion. I’d love for there to be a reliably libertarian West, for instance. Hell, I would settle for a libertarian Rhode Island. But at some point, you have to analyze these trends in a way that doesn’t succumb consistently to the pundit’s fallacy.
Leaving aside the intra-fusionist debates where I’m more traditionalist than libertarian, I personally favor Social Security privatization, drug legalization, school vouchers, greater civil liberties protections, and the abolition of most vice laws. But I am not optimistic that this would add up to a winning political platform no matter how many tax cuts I added to the mix.
