Default dump Jesus for victory in 2012

Good to see that critics of libertarianism exist somewhere in the universe.

While I agree that the current financial crisis has been a blow to their creed, I think that libertarians will remain a powerful force in US politics -- way out of proportion to their numbers in the population. It will remain the de facto worldview (or dream) of much of corporate America. At its core, after all, libertarianism is just a rationalization for personal greed, which is everybody's favorite sin.

Indeed, all the Republicans need to do is dump the Jesus freaks/Huckabee/Palin wing of their party and become more libertarian and they'll win elections into perpetuity. (Shhh... don't tell anyone...)
