So how much did the US election change?

Judge Andrew Napolitano hosts a couple of interesting discussions in the aftermath of last week’s US elections.

First, “The Election Didn't Change Anything!” says Reason magazine editor Michael Moynihan. It’s all still business as usual. Mostly.

And how about the argument over conservatives vs. libertarians in the Tea Party, that movement more responsible than any other for the Republican revival.  Conservative Mike Huckabee—barbs about being a RINO obviously having pierced his hide—takes on the libertarian viewpoints on drugs, taxes, and tea.

As Paul Hsieh says, the GOP had better “dance with the one who brung them, or be left standing by the wall for good.

  1. Too soon to tell; however, I've been cynical about the whole thing since day zero, so I'd be more prone to side with the Reason article until I see different.
