You'll grow up and be old some day and it's a reach, but you might even get enlightened too. I'm fine with the GOP going more libertarian socially except they should continue to strive for the civil rights of persons residing in a womb.
I'm even becoming libertarian on the drug issue that I despise. I figure that legalization would hit the career politicians in the pocket book since it appears so many profit from it. Maybe then we could actually secure the border since the profit from keeping the border open would dry up.
It's really easy to see who has they're hand in that cookie jar. They're the ones saying the border is secure and there's no need to do anything.
