No. They are not the party of business. Nor do they potray themselves as such. They are the party of the market and want businesses to have to hold their own instead of getting bailed out, subsidized, and protected in the name of being "business friendly."And when it comes to money complaints, isn't the Libertarian Party portraying itself as the party of business?
Because Libertarian candidates aren't usually establishment politicians with connections and the will to sell themselves to the highest bidder? Because Libertarian policies, for the most part, disfavor big business? There's a thousand and one reasons to explain that other than "they suck." i consider their lack of corporate funding to be the most attractive part of the party, not a downfall.Why can it get no business contributions then?
Besides, it's not any less anecdotal than your claim that women don't like the Libertarian Party because we're weak and dependent.

If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
Libertarian candidates, or any other third party, for that matter, are extremely important. They are our ONLY means of communicating our disgust with the two parties.
Only by voting libertarian will your party, be they republican or democrat, see the need for internal change.
