Some Serious Libertario Delenda Est

Bill Whittle is sometimes -- well, usually -- over the top for my tastes, but I love his style and language. He has discovered the same thing I have here: I will not sway my lefty friends, but my libertarian friends can be reached with reason.

Pretty good, huh?

Yup, purdy good. Two thumbs up from me.

But I'll bet you a free beer for each of them that none of your Libertarian friends can be reached with reason. (Little-l libertarians don't count.)

@jg "It's my dream, let me live it!" :)

You might be right, but through a mutual friend, I have discovered quite a vein of people of mixed case Ls. They have listened respectfully and I am not alone in my pragmatism.

I have moved exactly zero votes in the previous two Presidential elections, so I am potentially stepping up.

Don't think of my wager as discouragement, but a challenge. Not a barrier but a pot-sweetener for your interlocutors.

"...and if this video persuades you to actually pull the lever (in Colorado) for Romney/Ryan instead of [insert favorite wasted vote here] my Objectivist friend will meet us at our favorite watering hole and buy you a beer!"

I'll trust your judgement of each convert's honesty.
