Not everyone is enthusiastic about the rise in popularity of Sarah Palin. I didn’t vote for her when I had the chance, and nothing has happened since November 2008 that would lead me to change my mind.
Leslie Carbone, author of the recently-published Slaying Leviathan: The Moral Case for Tax Reform says it better than I can myself:
With the popular outrage sparked by the Bush bail-outs, I’ve become more hopeful about the future of economic freedom than I’d been in 20 years. And the tea parties and town-hall protests just buttressed my optimism.
I’m still optimistic, but the reflexive, relativistic, populism-as-the-new-elitism near-worship showered upon Gov. Palin by supposed conservatives and libertarians — people who profess to believe in economic freedom — tempers my optimism.
