Quote Of The Day

by Brad Warbiany

Who joined whom?

Gay marriage has always been an ideal niche for liberaltarians. After all, it’s the states, not the feds, that are the ones deciding whether it should be legal, a question that feeds into libertarians’ federalist affinities. And when you strip away the cultural and identity politics, gay marriage is really just a fight about whether the government should be allowed to regulate personal liberty. On that, again, libertarians side with liberals.

(emphasis added)

Yeah, because liberals are so consistent on those questions of government regulating personal liberty!
