Tech Entrepreneurs and Libertarians 'Strange Bedfellows'?
According to this article, Republican (libertarian) Senator Rand Paul was surprisingly well-received during a recent visit to Silicon Valley. But this doesn't surprise me for they're not really "strange bedfellows" (per the title) at all. There is a growing schism between young tech entrepreneurs and the liberal political establishment in cities like San Francisco and Manhattan, where the state is attempting to control burgeoning app businesses such as Uber and Lyft with regulation, taxation, and protectionism. I expect this trend to continue.
