Ron Paul Campaigning for Ken Cuccinelli: "Insane" to Vote For Libertarian Candidate Robert Sarvis

On Monday, former Congressman and staunch libertarian Ron Paul (R-TX) campaigned for Virginia Republican Governor candidate Ken Cuccinelli and said Virginias would be giving up on liberty if they voted for Democrat Terry McAuliffe in Tuesday's election and would be "insane" if they voted for so-called libertarian Robert Sarvis, the third-party candidate who may siphon enough votes from Cuccinelli to spoil the election. 

Specifically referring to the mileage taxes that Sarvis indicated he may support and which may require GPS systems to be installed in everyone's cars, Paul said "anybody who would conceivably vote for someone who would endorse a mileage tax" is "insane" because a mileage tax would be an "invasion of privacy" and would just give the government more money it could waste. In an interview on MSNBC, Sarvis indicated that he could support "vehicle-miles-driven taxes."

    Sarvis wants to add a mileage tax not very libertarian more authoritarian aside from gay marriage (Abortion could go either way if he is against it for the nonaggression principal it libertarian if he against it for religious reason its not) Cuccinelli is libertarian while Sarvis is a centralist at best.
