The Washington Times reported:

On ABC’s “This Week,”George Will reacted to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s ongoing feud with libertarian-leaning Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul.
The Washington Post columnist said that the governor may end up losing the feud with Mr. Paul if he objects to libertarian principles.

“Let’s be clear what libertarianism is and what it isn’t: It is not anarchism, it has a role for government,” Mr. Will said.

“What libertarianism says — it comes in many flavors and many degrees of severity, and it basically says before the government, it bridges the freedom of an individual or the freedom of several individuals contracting together, that government ought to have, A) a compelling reason and B) a constitutional warrant for doing so. Now, if Mr. Christie thinks that’s a dangerous thought, a number of people are going to say that Mr. Christie himself may be dangerous.

Right on, George.
Now convince the rest of the Republican elites of what you just said.
