Views[edit]

Walker's writings display a definite libertarian bent, and he has cast a protest vote for the Libertarian Party's nominee in every presidential election of his adult lifetime except one, though "more often than not, I think they've put up a terrible candidate."[2]

Foreign policy[edit]

Walker was critical of the War on Terror[3] and opposed the Patriot Act.[4] He has stated that it is a myth that the U.S. pursued an "isolationist" foreign policy between World War I and World War II.[5]
