I agree with Jeffrey Miron, with a few qualifications (“A case for the libertarian,” Web, July 17). As a Tea Party conservative, I oppose “crony capitalism,” and given our recent history, I have become leery of foreign interventions. I suspect many conservatives feel the same way.

As far as the issue of states’ rights goes, there is room for compromise with conservatives on the issues Mr. Miron suggests as “inconsistencies.” I firmly believe we conservatives are far less inconsistent on most of the major issues of the day than our liberal counterparts. Libertarianism and conservatism could pose a powerful threat to the liberal cabal that has overtaken the country. I would agree that it is time for a libertarian-conservative awakening.
