The libertarians WILL shrink the gov't? They WILL NEVER get elected because they WILL NEVER be (and have never been, I might add) more than a fringe party. Your pipe dream of a third party as the answer is a CRACK PIPE one at that! There are much-more conservative, young heavyweights coming up in 4-8 years (e.g. Rubio, Ryan, Rand Paul et al). We have to HOLD ON in the meantime! If you contribute to O's re-election, it will be too late! That is REALITY! Don't you get it?!
