Libertarians will gladly answer any argument you come up with. This doesn't mean you will LIKE the answer, however.

That's not childish?

Seriously, you'd think you'd want to come together and change the republican party from the ground up...

We're trying, why do you think all the rule changes happened?

"So I'll stick with the one percent."

And you might have well have said, "I'll continue to have no influence to effect positive change"....self soothing at it's FINEST!

The belittling is a tired way of dodging an argument....starting to question the word "argument" is a little Clintonian.....and I'm accused I want bigger government?

Sheesh, get a bleepin' mirror.

Let's posit that you consider "libertarians keep harassing conservatives, and getting 1 percent of the vote" to even BE an "argument."

The only conceivable MEANING of such an "argument" is, "your views are UNPOPULAR, and therefore, WRONG. Issues of right or wrong are determined by majority vote."

Now, if the broader meaning of your "argument" is that libertarians should work WITH conservatives on ad hoc issues, I don't think you'd find a libertarian that would disagree with you. If a conservative, for example, advocates auditing and abolishing the Federal Reserve, I'm all for it.

But joining conservatives to elect a candidate who is little different from the current officeholder makes no sense. So I'll stick with the one percent.

Or that it will be germaine to the question asked.....
Democrats won big last week. So government will continue to grow. Individual freedom will yield.

At least some people with records of supporting liberty were elected: Sen. Jeff Flake in Arizona and U.S. Reps. Justin Amash and Kerry Bentivolio in Michigan and Thomas Massie in Kentucky.

Also, Washington and Colorado voted to allow any adult to use marijuana. (But users beware. Your newfound freedom may be short-lived thanks to that extraordinary human being in the White House -- you know, the one who smoked pot when he was in school. Despite promising that he wouldn't, he has cracked down on pot...
