Not exactly.


There were no third party or libertarian candidates that they supported. None. Zero.

If they were really Libertarians, wouldn’t they throw some money at the Libertarian Party?

Instead, they threw their lot in with the party whose main political strategy is to suppress the vote. I’m not well versed on the stuff that Cato and Reason push out, but the right to vote seems to me to be a pretty fundamental liberty in a democracy.

Libertarianism was co-opted by movement conservatives for intellectual cover starting in the 50s. The Koch’s fund Cato and Reason in that tradition, not because they are libertarians.
