I say:

If a conservative is a liberal who has been mugged by reality,* then a libertarian is a conservative who has been mugged by the government.


Apparently Tom Wolfe sort of beat me to this variant, saying:

If a conservative is a liberal who’s been mugged, a liberal is a conservative who’s been arrested.

*The original quip is attributed to Irving Kristol.
