Divided We Stand

Reader and blogger Mike Wallach offers an interesting solution to the problem of how libertarians can organize themselves for maximum political impact: Always vote for divided government. Always.

That divided government keeps down spending is now the conventional wisdom. The idea of using that concept as the central organizing principle of a political movement ... it's far-fetched. OK, it's implausible.

But it might stop anything much from ever getting done in Washington, D.C., which is a start.

(Of course, it could also lead to an outbreak of "bipartisanship" -- the worst of all possible political outcomes.)
