The Republican Liberty Caucus is the libertarian decider? That is an outrageous assertion, which implies that the Republican Party tends towards libertarianism, more than the Democratic Party. An Absurdity that flails about irrationally in light of what the GOP gone wild in D.C. did to the deficit, and individual liberties. There is no libertarianism to be found within a party that supported the theft of habeas corpus; that gave a wink and a nod to the Bush administratiomn's imprimatur upon acts of human torture.

Bob Barr is no libertarian either.

Bob Barr voted for The PATRIOT Act, before he was against it.

Bob Barr was a primary architect of The Defense of Marriage Act, which selectively abridged The U.S. Constitution; Article. IV.; Section. 1. without using the legitimate Constitutional Amendment process to do so.

Bob Barr still still believes in waging The War On Drugs.

Bob Barr aided an abetted the gutting of habeas corpus appeals for persons incarcerated in America, and did so in a Bill that was ostensibly supposed to be a terror preventative, which eventually became Public Law No: 104-132.

On September 13, 2001, two days after the WTC and Pentagon terrorist attack, Mr. Barr proposed H.J. Res. 62 on the House Floor, which would have simply given complete discretion to Bush to attack just whoever, two days after the 911 attacks.

Bob Barr Voted To Authorize the Use of United States Armed Forces Against Iraq

Bob Barr Voted for the Establishment of The Department of Homeland Security

Bob Barr didn't even bother to show up and vote on Roll Call Vote 483 on November 15, 2002: The Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2003. He was probably still crying about his electoral loss, and couldn't be bothered about his honorably sworn Constitutional duty.

After losing his House seat, Bob Barr kept his Leadership PAC active, and used it mostly as a personal slush fund, but still managed to donate into very anti-libertarian Republicans' reelection campaigns, after he had become an LP official.

Barr is a bad joke, and his association with Richard Viguerie, makes it an obsence one.
