- Context: In this piece, Michelle Fields discussed how the Republican Party’s social platform is pushing young conservatives to Libertarianism. As she points out, most young conservatives have very liberal views on social issues. The Republican Party has fought and successfully subdued the rise of Libertarianism, represented by Ron Paul and his supporters, within its own ranks.
