Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

A Problem with an Obama Presidency

If Obama is elected and doesn't govern from the center, the Republicans will almost certainly regain the House and probably the Senate in 2010 and possibly the White House in 2012. The problem is that the Wall Street faction of the Republican Party has taken itself out of consideration in the course of the past few weeks. In other words, we are likely to see nativists (and possibly protectionists) running the government in a few years.

We right-wing open-borders people might start looking at the theocratic wing of the Republican Party. (I promise that if I endorse Mike Huckabee for President on the blog, I'll throw up first.)

Meanwhile, the Libertarians are looking like a better choice lately. A month ago, a large Libertarian vote would be taken as an endorsement of isolationism. Right now, it's likely to be taken as opposition to bailouts.

Why are you an open borders man? Doesn't free immigration sit rather badly with a giant welfare apparatus? Or are you hoping free immigration will destroy said welfare apparatus?
