I love Fred Reed! Lew Rockwell publishes his columns quite often and that's how I found him.

I discovered him via a link at The Orthosphere.

My take on him is that he's too much into the pose of being a 'curmudgeon'. Or, to put it another way, I think he's one of those fools who like to strike the "a pox on both their houses" pose ... and thereby demonstrate his superiority to mere mortals who believe this or that.

Oh well, the "curmudgeon" thing surely is a pose, but I think he makes more sense than most mainstream columnists.

As for "a pox on both their houses", that sounds like the libertarian attitude to liberals and conservatives (or Democrats and Republicans).
