The Mentality of Beltway Libertarians

Yesterday I wound up in a Twitter exchange with J.D. Tuccille of Reason magazine, which has long been supportive of New Mexico governor Gary Johnson. I was responding to a Tweet in which the Cato Institute’s David Boaz pointed out that Bill Weld, vice-presidential candidate for the Libertarian Party, had praised his book back in 1997. (Yes, he tweeted that.) The exchange below begins with my reply to that Tweet.

I reproduce the exchange below because it speaks volumes about the mentality of the Washington, DC libertarians.
