In a previous post, I mentioned that, according to Rasmussen Reports, Gore and Edwards are matching up better than either Obama or Clinton in hypothetical races against Rudy Giuliani, the current Republican front-runner. Eric of Mainstream Libertarian points out that, if nominated, Rudy Giuliani would be the first Libertarian Republican to run since Barry Goldwater. Goldwater was a good guy. As a kid in 1964, I remember drinking cans of ginger ale called Goldwater. AuH2O in 64!
I was not aware of this Libertarian streak of Giuliani’s, and since I can relate to certain aspects of the Libertarian agenda (liberty, personal privacy, secular government, etc), I’d like to learn more about him. The terms liberty, liberal, and libertarian, after all, have the same Latin root word: liber.
Giuliani must have done a respectable job as mayor of NYC and he seems like a positive, self-effacing guy. You have to like someone who can laugh at himself. Maybe he’d do all right as president.
I guess the only question is, if elected, what would he wear to the Inauguration?
