    And membership gains, btw, is how you measure that a party is growing. Not sure if you understand that a party gets larger as more people join it.

    As for the structure, it's a work in progress. Membership increases are a part of it. Mailing lists are established. Campaigns are being run for congressional slots. On a state level, there is growing support, as well. I don't really feel like going for the list, but I get enough notifications of practices to feel confident that things are improving on a better pace than I would expect.

    Truth is, though, I still love this blind hate of the party. It just means we have had enough of an impact to upset ya Thanks for giving us credit.
    Give you credit for what exactly? You accomplish and do nothing because you have no power to do anything. Politics is about power and the libertarian party has none. They are merely a pimple on the ass of the body politic.

    Not really. and I find the liberal moderators to be more reasonable. The infractions I have disputed almost always have come from conservative moderators, not the liberal ones

    The one thing I know is absolute fact is that the percentage of people who claim they are libertarians is way way way out of proportion to the American populace. For some reason, right wing libertarians have decided that internet message boards are the battleground for the hearts and minds of the next generation.
    We also have more socialists, communists, anarchists, and fascists than you see in the general populations. And the answer is simple. If you follow one of the non-mainstream political ideologies, you have an interest in politics. You're far more likely to seek out a board like this than a typical apolitical member of the population.

    Socially I'm very liberal. Marriage abortion all that stuff.

    other than that I'm a pragmatist.

    All of the exclusively religious, socialists, communists, anarchists, or fascists sites are echo chambers that ban members for having non-collective opinions. Which is why I like it here.
