KC Star: Will 'bailout mania' open door for LP?
Posted on Feb 23, 2009
The Kansas City Star newspaper today points readers to a blog entry from blogger Nick Sloan, asking "Will bailout-mania open door for Libertarians?"
"But at some point – and we may be there already– America is going to be sick of bailouts and stimulus packages. And Libertarians have been the strongest opponents of it and have been more consistent against bailouts and deficit spending. Remember, the GOP embraced deficit spending during the Bush presidency.
"Libertarians need to prepare and pounce on this opportunity. There will never be a better time for Libertarians to recruit Americans to their cause and ideology."
It's a question more and more political observers are asking, and every day we're getting e-mails from former Republicans who are switching theit voter registration.
