Libertarians nominated Jo Jorgensen for president, a long-ago VP candidate and NOT an ex-Republican, on the fourth ballot. Libertarians did a virtual convention for president and veep ONLY; the original plan for an all-virtual convention was derailed when some legalistic LPer cited bylaws, so they’ll meet in person for other quadrennial business. (Does this surprise you?)
Just because she’s their first woman nominee doesn’t make her anything but the typical hardcore Libertarian, per a Reason interview. (Don’t ever, EVER forget Maggie Thatcher, per the header.) *
She makes the No True Scotsman claim that healthcare needs free markets to actually work. Actually, a good socialist like me knows that insurers are but lightly regulated. Pretty free market. And abusive. But, doctors and hospitals, ordering unnecessary tests out of a mix of capitalist grifting and fear of L/libertarian type lawsuits, are also part of the problem.
