John Stossel on Electing Liberty



Before yesterday's election, Ann Coulter warned liberty-loving citizens against voting Libertarian because "nothing matters more to the country than Republicans taking a majority in the Senate." It's this sort of mindset that distracts us from defending something far more important than either party: individual liberty.

Democrats want government control of the economy and more regulation of speech, innovation, medicine, school, and all kinds of things. But Republicans want to control our personal lives and fight constant wars abroad. It's time America obsessed less about Republicans vs. Democrats, argues John Stossel, and more about electing liberty, in all its forms.
