  •  Didn't Think They Were Serious (none)
    I think a lot of libertarians started voting GOP with Reagan, and many of them at the time might not have thought that the GOP was serious about the social conservatism.  Reagan winked and would say things to pander to the Religious Right, but on the whole he wasn't like Dubya.  Not until the present, with Dubya and the Republican Congress, do you really have the social conservatism of the GOP taking total control.  And I think it's going to put a strain on libertarian voters.  I know one female friend who's mildly libertarian who voted for Bush and said that she didn't think he'd seriously appoint someone to the Supreme Court that would overturn Roe.  We'll just see about that.
