The Republican Party has never truly been Libertarian since Barry Goldwater and is more Neo-Conservative with a heavy leaning of Social Conservatism while being in support of the Military Complex and Corporate Welfare.

An absolute lie. The word neoconservatism has actually been used to refer to American conservatism in Europe; for America it is the usual Jeffersonian conservatism. For America, this concept does not make any sense.
American conservatism has always been libertarian.

Reagan was never Libertarian and like Trump, Reagan was a Democrat before becoming a Republican!

The GOP is certainly more of a home for Libertarians than the Dem party, as the Party of Smaller Government,

but it has never really been libertarian.

Social Conservatism while being the poster child for Corporate Welfare and the Military Complex is what the GOP been for decades…

Nixon did not create a volunteer army, and Reagan did not pursue a policy of reducing social redistribution?

All of America understood that the GOP was a party of libertarianism. Freedom has always been a priority for the right, and the left has always been considered communist totalitarian whores. It's just that there are too many stupid Europeans in the USA now and the vaccine has damaged their brains.

Well, the Free Trade policy has/is certainly attractive to a lot of Libertarians, as was the lack of cracking down on illegals, overall deregulation, and more recently supporting Free Speech and Freedom of Religion.


While the Dems.... They can point to their pro drug policies, but other than that... lol, Big Oppressive Govenrment all the way.

Fair point about Nixon. Reagan talked about the issue, but did not do much on it. Most of his focus was economic growth and fighting commies.

Either we will now be saved from the scammers, or the world will lose Freedom forever.

He did enough. Under Reagan, the army was well funded, and its professionalism was at the highest level.

Which was a great thing. And very much in American interests. BUT, not specifically Libertarian.


Not ANTI-LIBERTARIAN, either. Kind of a neutral point in that context.

In fact, the left has always been hard on drugs, especially cocaine and heroin, they needed to promote alcohol. But now it is better not to touch on this complex topic.

Supporting a volunteer army is libertarian, otherwise you will be forced to have a slave left type army.
