Why libertarians should back the GOP ticket

Cries of glee and exultation from much of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's center-right base met the former Massachusetts governor's selection of Congressman Paul Ryan, R-Wis. as his running mate.

Both so-called "social conservatives" and "tea partiers," and even some libertarians, are hailing the pick as a kind of victory for traditional values and/or fiscal restraint.

From the libertarian point of view, the praise is largely misplaced. But, so far as the nonlibertarian options at Romney's disposal were concerned, the candidate could have selected much worse, and as a strategic matter, those concerned with the viable future of the libertarian movement should bite the bullet and support the Romney-Ryan duo come November.
