Libertarians will never stand a chance until the perception that a vote for the Libertarians assures a Liberal democratic victory.
That day may be drawing nearer.
I spent all last week traveling in Florida ( I live in California) with stops in Texas.
Many of the people I spoke to were Republicans. However as the conversations progressed the topic always got around to the Libertarians and it always went the same way.
Almost none of the random people I spoke to,really liked the Republican party anymore. They just dislike the liberals even more.
Citizens are crying for less government intrusion,less utter wasteful spending paid for by ever higher taxes,fees and debt.
Most people I talk to are NOT religious fundamentalists,is they are religious at all.
Most just want to be left alone to make the best life for themselves and their families.
The libertarian belief is really strong but just about everyone thinks a Libertarian vote splits the Republican vote and give the country to the Liberals and they fear that most of all.
We need to find a way to get over this barrier.
One thing is obvious from the recent scandals. Time is late.We are near to actual goverment takeover.
The Liberals are entrenched in the schools teaching student to be better morons.
The liberals have filled the government agencies like the IRS,FBI,FEC,EPA,and Labor and State departments with Liberal dreamers.
When you watch college students and average pedestrians being intervied on the street it is shocking how ignorant the “average” person is. And rember,if they are average,50% of the people are stupider.
