Peter Hamby has a piece on CNN.COM about Rand Paul here. It looks like Libertarians are finally getting some national attention that does not include the words “fringe” or “Kook.”
Here is the video of Dave Camp’s exchange with the IRS commissioner where it was revealed that Lerner’s hard drive was physically destroyed. It seems that Issa has sent a letter to the IRS asking a number of questions to get to the bottom of how this could have happened. There is an abbreviated list of the questions here. This is only going to get worse for the IRS.
Check out David Boez’s article in the Daily Beast here. It is very refreshing to hear that the Libertarian leaning members of the GOP are addressing the issue of big business and crony capitalism that most of us find so distasteful, but has been the hallmark of the GOP for so long. Here is a…

Finally some objective commentary on the RNC and Romney’s speech last week. It is refreshing to hear something other than Chris Mathews claiming Mitt’s “when the world needs something big done , they look for an American” line was racist and a reference to the birther movement or Sean Hannity repeating over and over how Paul Ryan is his man crush. What I like about Stossel and the folks at Reason is that they are skeptical with about being cynics. Isn’t that what it is all supposed to be about?
This is a pretty good overview of what Libertarians believe, versus what everyone thinks we believe. Good stuff.
