Lots of us started out as Republicans and then became disenchanted as first Goldwater and then Reagan were cast by the wayside as the party veered toward the middle of the road. But Bob Barr isn’t just a former Republican, he was a very un-Libertarian Republican. I was skeptical of his choice to run for President as a Libertarian and surprised when the Convention chose him.
But having listened to him recently, his conversion seems sincere, and he exudes the zeal typical of the newly converted. So, it would seem we have a candidate worth supporting. If he can make it into the debates, he will make fools of the major party candidates. (But then any Libertarian could do that.)
