David Friedman on Libertarians vs. Big Government Republicans

Jonah Goldberg had an essay in December in which he dismissed the idea of a liberal and libertarian alliance and instead call for libertarians and conservatives to recommit themselves to the fusionist project” even if they need counseling. David Friedman, who has suggested areas of common ground between libertarians and liberals in the past disagrees. He dismisses the idea of libertarians remaining alligned with Republicans noting, “Since Republicans at the moment support more government—more even than Democrats as of the last time they were in power—it is worth looking for other allies.”
