Do you think it is more likely in the next 20 years that liberals will embody some core libertarian values before conservatives?

Libertarians would stick with the Conservatives due to the small gov aspect and the economic freedoms. I doubt the liberals would leave the New Deal behind.

Thats unlikely. Conservatives are showing less capability for economic freedoms, and the social mandates drive off alot of libertarians.

Liberals seem to have a chance of loosening economic mandates as deficit spending will eventually force their hand.

Odds are in favor of the liberals.

I don't see the Liberals moving towards the works of that of Milton Friedman though.

That may be true, but deficit spending over the next 20 years increases the chances of loosening economic contract mandates. Hack the unions already are bargaining for minimum wage exemptions. Those guys are a huge liberal political support group.

Pershal, the minimuim wage should be lowered if not, abolished.

Uh..some liberals already embrace libertarian values, my friend.

See, you can be a liberal or a conservative Libertarian. In fact, political science-wise, it is more natural for someone who has overall liberal views--especially on matters like personal liberties, and is pro choice and anti-death penalty--to BE a Libertarian; Which, in today's political landscape, usually means anyone who is against Big Government and the Nanny State.

You must remember that on the macro political spectrum, Republicans and Democrats are NOT on opposite sides of the scale, but are rather right next to each other in the Middle. On that scale, at the extreme left you would have Anarchists and on the extreme right we would see Fascists.
