Libertarian Lucas Overby

From The Global Dispatch:

The 13th Congressional District race in Florida is heating up in a bizarre fashion.

This is an editorial.

Many within the LP refuse to see the obvious. Like major party voters, if someone tells them what they want to hear, it’s enough.

Evidence that a self-proclaimed libertarian is actually anti-liberty rarely seems to matter, but here we go.
