What if everyone reading this flaps their arms and flies to the moon? That seems just as likely as the author’s dream that the libertarian wing of the party can dominate the primaries in 2016 and take over the GOP.

Want to see what the libertarians come up with when they have money. Just check out Silicon Vally billionaire Tim Draper’s plan to split California into six states so they can have an “experiment with democracy”.

No idea on how it would all work, none at all. We should just try it because a rich vulture capitalist says we should.

You really have to keep these assholes as far away from the levers of power as possible.

What if the Republican party starts to promote candidates who simply can’t be painted as aren’t sexually repressive, oil-crazed religious freaks?

Also, too, what if flying monkeys fly straight outta my ass?

On one of the more minor points of the article, I can’t wait to see the over-the-counter IUD. To say nothing of diaphragms (need to be fitted), injected methods (shoot yourself up?) and The Pill, which is prescription only for good reason. Morons.

But let’s all be grateful for morons. If they stay in their deep state of denial, they won’t be making any serious efforts to woo people outside the lunatic fringe they already own. Which, until there’s an outbreak of sanity in the right wing, is a good thing.

Excellent point and not minor at all. There is…um…no chance whatsoever that a serious GOP presidential candidate is going to be “calling for over-the-counter birth control” 18 months from now. Not. Going. To. Happen.

I’m sure that Smith would have thought that young people were extremely libertarian back in the late ‘90’s, during the tech boom. Having been on the tech sites a lot back then, it was remarkable how arrogant many of them were about “just effort” and “intelligence” were sufficient for success. Of course if you were “talented,” you’d be rich and could negotiate whatever salary you wanted!

Then came the crash, and suddenly a lot of these same people were out on the streets, looking for work as their nice, cushy, well-paid selves were found to be “not needed” and, as it turned out, “replaceable.” The survivors, then found that they were also not wanted after they thought they might like a life, in addition to a career. Tsk. Go through a few cycles like that, and it’s amazing how the “generational divide” he’s pinning his hopes on disappears.
