Bob Barr: Why not vote Libertarian?

This November Oregon is certain to go to Obama. Thus, a friend reasons, true limited-government Republicans, who are less-than-enthralled with McCain, should vote for former Congressman Bob Barr, the Libertarian Party candidate. The reasoning goes, a vote for McCain is a wasted vote, so there’s no guilt, and much value, in checking the Barr box: Son of Read-My-Lips Bush, Sr. and his Rhino ilk far down the partisan line deserve to be purged. Having recently read “Our Collectivist Candidates,” which describes their philosophical sameness, my friend’s idea merits serious consideration. There comes a time to raise the Barr — and to quit voting for the evil of two lessers.
