Party Wages War on GOP Voters

Take over the GOP with conservative representatives by waging a conservative campaign and politics will solve the seemingly intractable phony war. It only seems like a phony war because you assign equal blame to moderate republicans and Marxist democrats. The word conservative isn't mentioned in your post. The RINOs and liberals hate conservatives, while libertarians pretend they don't exist. Your solution is to give up and let the country go to hell and in the end you will be proven right. All the suffering and death that will ensue means nothing to you ... as long as you win the argument.

A Republican is a socialist who is also a warmonger. The GOP has never cut federal spending, never eliminated a single socialist program. Not one. It's a sham party that exists to provide the illusion of choice, and to serve as butt boy for the Democrats.

Conservatives hate libertarians as well. RINOs hate libertarians more then they dislike liberals. As a libertarian you don't have many options other than to watch the two phony parties battle it out, and to ignore as many of their laws as you can get away with.

The country is going to hell and no one is going to stop it now. Conserve your resources for when the real fight begins - when the freeloaders stop getting checks.

Libertarians are economically conservative like conservatives, and do acknowledge them. Libertarians part with conservatives when they want government to enforce virtues on others (like liberals want to enforce their virtues on others). Libertarians also part with conservatives in the use of our military: libertarians want the military to protect the US, not endanger it by meddling in foreign countries with oppressive dictators.

Libertarians would vote Republican if we didn't have candidates who support a big spending, military meddling, and virtue enforcing government. Bush, McCain, Dole, Romney all supported more government, not less. Don't look at their rhetoric, look at their voting records and budgets.
The very quotable British novelist Samuel Butler observed that, “Self-preservation is the first law of nature.”  Reports coming from Washington seem to show that this instinct is increasingly demonstrated in a very short-sighted set of actions by institutional Republicans in light of recent successes where grassroots held their elected representatives’ feet to the fire; a fire fueled by the party platform.
