Jim Iannuzo: Bill Weld a Commitment to Hypocrisy?

Jim Iannuzo at Libertarian Solution:

Why would the Libertarian Vice Presidential nominee shill for Hillary Clinton? He favors state control over individual choice and fails to understand his immoral position.

Bill Weld, like many in the “established” political class believe that statisim trumps freedom. Statist politicians repudiate individual choice preferring to hob knob with the incumbent power structure and career bureaucrats. It’s about pushing orthodoxy over individual choice. Libertarianism on the other hand, promotes voluntary association, non-aggression and self ownership. Libertarians recognize that the smallest common denominator is the individual not some fabricated demographic that politicians troll every election cycle. Libertarians run for political office to present an alternative political reality which rejects force and fraud putting each person in charge of their life. It’s the message not the messenger. Win or lose, Libertarian candidates who fail to focus on these ideals and instead enter into the media’s hyped up red vs. blue agenda betray the Libertarian message.

    Wow. . Did he write this on while on a shamanic journey?

    I didn’t see bending space/time and multi-dimensional travel in the job description when I ran for State House in Ohio.

    Next time I run I’ll drop acid before each campaign event/debate, so I can come up with whoppers like this one.

    There’s a whole lotta derp in that article.

    The fundamental libertarian aversion to William Weld is fundamentally two-fold: (i) his administrative state law and order republicanism (ii) his devotion to American Exceptionalism. Now American Exceptionalism has meant different things at different times, but today it means this: the indispensable American Political Class dominates the globe…usually by whatever means necessary.

    However, I wouldn’t classify Weld as someone who philosophically ascribes to the state trumping the individual…i doubt anyone like that could fake it being in a convention full of libertarians w/o breaking into hives.
