Get over it. The Libertarians have been trying for forty year to nominate a presidential candidate. Instead you can count on one hand the number of candidates they have ever put in office. Like it or not...this is a two party system. If the abdicators would work within the party closest to them and change the party from within in stead of toying around the fringes another forty years they might actually be able to effect real change. Otherwise they have wasted their political lives.

I have a deep well of libertarianism (that's with a small "l" not a big "L") in me, mainly based on the principle that less government is good government. It has been said that the test of your support for the Constitution comes when you support others' rights to do things that you personally despise. One of these tests for me involves smoking, which I strongly detest, but which I strongly defended each time government proposed new smoking bans.

Another test is my tolerance of those who come to blogs like Town Hall to express views contrary to conservative values. My tolerance extends to those like Doctor Roy, Bessotto, and a couple of others, because they at least attempt to discuss the issues. It is good to understand the motivations of those who oppose you. My tolerance does not extend to mgoode880, as that person does not bring any intelligent thoughts to the discussion. I regularly flag every one of his (or her) comments. Those who don't respect the Constitution are often the ones expressing their opinions by saying, "There ought to be a law against (fill in the blank)."

You are right in national elections - Libertarians haven't done well. The same can not be said in local elections.

I'm curious, do you know anything about libertarians other than they tend to favor drug legalization? Most non-lib/prog/marxist/communist have much more in common with libertarians than they know....

That's just more proof the Republican Party is not the answer. What "winners" have they given us?

The point is that it is SPECIFICALLY republicans that are the problem. They run around preaching some kind of conservatism, then they vote for a non-conservative.

Democrats have always been a lost cause and I expect nothing from them. Republicans at least spoke in the past like they wanted the Constitution honored.

If a president won't honor the Constitution, that means they are breaking the law, our highest law.
