Lest we be accused of misrepresenting their views, actual Libertarians have been kicking around this take on Somalia with a straight face for some time now. No shit: http://mises.org/story/2066
A more nuanced completely insane view is that Somalia has been awesome-ized by Anarchism, not Libertarianism. http://www.reason.com/blog/show/117519.html.
Fair 'nuff, but as far as we can tell the difference between a Libertarian and an Anarchist usually seems to be a bachelor's degree.
So, it's fun to see folks like Glenn Beck eagerly veering into freaky yee-hah populist Libertarian zone. Go for it, guys. That's rebuilding the ol' brand.

The music used in this video isn't Somali, or even close to it. It was, however, free to use. Gotta like that. 2. It's easy to hate on Ted Nugent for participating in Fox News Tea Party promotions, but in all sincerity: "Wango Tango" is a badass song, and it's hard to argue with his solo on "Stranglehold." Ted, we'll still gladly pay to see you at whatever State Fair you're playing next.
