There’s an additional problem with Brink Lindsey’s argument. Democrats were able to make gains with libertarian voters without doing anything to specifically court them, so there isn’t much incentive for Democrats to suddenly risk alienating their base to pursue polices being pushed by Lindsey, such as “restructuring” of entitlement programs, just to win over more libertarian votes. From the Democrats point of view, a growing number of libertarians will be inclined to vote for them on the basis of national security and social issues anyway, so there’s no need to seek reconciliation with libertarians on economic issues.
