Tea-party and pro-economic liberty advocates in the Republican Party supported the nomination of Richard Mourdouck in Indiana and Todd Akin in Missouri for the US Senate. Both lost ignominiously in the 2012 election. They didn't lose because they favored economic freedom or smaller government. They lost because of their contempt for reality and mystic views on rape and conception.
Are mystics who recur to Providence for their world view the best we can do in the cause of liberty? If so, the battle is hopeless. Until and unless one of the major parties can field candidates who appreciate freedom because of its effects in this world, there is little hope for a successful pro-liberty coalition.
