Are libertarians part of the conservative movement? Matt Welch from Reason Magazine argues that libertarians are not. Matt will be facing off against AEI’s Jonah Golberg on this very question this week and Stu and I get a sneak peek! In the first installment of this two part discussion, Matt makes a strong as to why libertarians are different than conservatives, why they offer more realistic solutions to America’s problems, and why libertarianism is ultimately incompatible with conservatism. We also discuss the future of libertarian movement, the Ron Paul phenomenon, and why the Libertarian Party might not have a long future as a third party alternative.
