No, the GOP is not libertarian.

February 26, 2015

One thing many GOP officials try and claim is that they are more libertarian, more in love with small government than the Democrats are. Evidently, Montana legislator David “Doc” Moore missed that memo in his crusade against Yoga Shorts. His bill, fortunately tabled, would ban nudity and tight clothing that might simulate said nudity. For people who fear those individuals who wear clothes that are a bit too tight, it sounds good. For those who feel that the government should focus on crimes that actually have victims not so much.

The GOP may not want to regulate the same things the Democratic Party does, but make no mistake, they are In no way fans of truly small government. The libertarian label or as they prefer to put it, the “small government” label simply reflects the fact that the GOP has different beliefs in what type of intrusive government they want when compared to the Democrats, but neither party is a true fan of small or restricted government.
