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.
