Way to miss the point you Libertarian POS. The point was that "taking a stand" and supporting people like Ron Paul as opposed to people like Romney who can get elected lead to Obama getting elected. The Tea Party is changing the Republican Party from the inside out instead of standing off to the side and casting stones like a bunch of petulant teenagers. Being a Libertarian is as bad as not voting. If you added your votes to the Republican voting bloc and started actually PARTICIPATING instead of making a nusiance of yourself the Republican Party could be a better party. Logical things like ending the War on Drugs and denying rights to adults based on their sexual orientation could be happen and insanity like supporting NAMBLA would cease.
