I am not a Libertarian, the only political party I ever belonged to was Ross Perot's Reform party and still claim it as my party. But I voted for Johnson and Brown in 2000 and 2004. Why don't those members of the Libertarian Party always seem to vote for someone else?
    I don't usually vote at all libertarian or otherwise and a few other libertarians are the same as me on that. Going out to just waste time voting for someone that will lose is not something people generally find pleasure in. As you said it, its only 6-8% of the population and when you figure in how much most people know about the libertarian candidate its a waste of time to even consider doing. Though, I still do it if I'm feeling like blowing the night away voting for hope that certain night, but usually I don't.

    Could you perhpas open a frickin' book or look at the election returns? California has 55 electoral votes, not 'ninety some'. No wonder you guys can never win an election.

    If you are looking for a non argument than you really can't do better than what he offered. Nationalists all seem to be the same though.

    I know. We conveniently don't take kindly to metaphysical abstractions held by someone on the internet who has it all sorted out, until they step into the real world.

    Especially since our voters are "ethnically challenged" as was recently farted by another republican.
    We may not live down 2010 in my lifetime, Pero.
    W. Virginia and N. Carolina don't look good for my team in the senate.
    Dems better start focusing on the local level and build up plenty of secret money like the pubes.
    2010 cost you the blue dog democrats, if I remember right 53 of the 63 losses in the House occured in the heartland. In other words they were normally red districts that had turned blue back in 2006. DNCC chairman Casey had a lot to due you your success in 2006 as he recruited a bunch of moderate to conservative, even some pro life Democratic candidates to run in the heartland and they won. But Obamacare and what was perceived as their representatives and senators basically telling the people who elected to shove it where the sun don't shine when the wishes of these constutients were clearly voiced to their senators and representatives, caused their own defeat. I blame Pelosi and Reid forceing these elected officals using strong arm tactics to go against the wishes of the people they represented.

    West Virginia has had a long history of voting Republican in presidential elections and Democratic in senate elections and governor. North Carolina is a few years behind Virginia as it moves more toward the Democrats.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Don't look towards Navy as some sort of standard.

    Given the changing demographics, I'd guess 6-8 years.

    I'd vote for Jeffrey Dahmer over Obama.

    You honestly think I don't know the state can force whatever it wants on the people? I was however unaware that it by itself justified anything. Good to know nationalists are ahead of the game on that.
