    I judge based on actions, not promises. I have mentioned a few times...Im not a democrat...Id vote for Bill Clinton. I'll never vote for a 'party' again. That includes a libertarian ticket.

    That's a good attitude to have though. I identify as libertarian, and I will mostly vote for those candidates. But it's not a blind vote, I only vote for candidates I've researched. And yes, as you say actions not promises. We don't know what the LP would quite do if they got in charge, so you have to run the experiment to find out. But we have plenty of Republocrat data.

    As for Clinton...I'd take him over Obama or Bush...and I wanted his ass impeached when he was President (still do [OK, he's not President anymore...but if], lying under oath when your Pres...not acceptable). It just goes to show how we end up with worse each and every election cycle.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Thats kinda the silliness of the "pure" libertarian concept. Tell me...are you so blindly tied to your party that you sacrificed the ability for independent thought or is that just a little "zing" you throw in?

    with Clinton its strictly a political support. I dont so muh care about the lyin under oath as i do about what he was giving testimony for in the first place.

    I have never voted a straight party ticket in my life as I vote for the man and always will. I have voted for Democrats and Republicans but never a third party spoiler.

    And, it was very clever. I just don't want to get into calling any other party some juvenile name.

    I always think independently. What little "zing" are you referring to?

    Tell me the little line about the worlds smallest political quiz and thr 1 question on open borders wasnt supposed to be a little dig at 'real' libertarians. And for the record...have YOU taken it? Just how much a libertarian are you and how much of you refuses to admit it?

    Yet you don't vote for the best man, only the man who will win as you admitted pages ago. The lesser or two evils, but still evill. That's the ironic thing
