I’ve noticed that a lot of members of the Republican Party have nothing but vitriol for self-described libertarians who have chosen to affiliate with the GOP. It seems a bit incongruous to me. The GOP brand is supposed to be one of a government with limited and well-defined powers exercising them as lightly as possible. This is something that would naturally attract libertarians, and it would make them allies of many conservatives on any number of issues. So what’s the deal with all of the hostility?
