    For the record, I don't really care what you have to say.

    They are making progress, but not so much on foreign policy IMO. In any case one need not be "successful" to see what the left has become. Like I said you really should try to understand how the left looks to outsiders.

    If you were truly open minded you would seriously note my observation. But its no matter, the lefts hubris also hastens its demise.

    I'm saying your attribution of skills to libertarians is rather hilarious, considering they have yet to begin to understand how everyone else perceives them and their ideas.

    I see you studied Alinsky's Rules for Radicals quite well.

    I agree with them on most social and fiscal issues, and find them quite consistent. Not so much with the left-which is a series of disparate interests willing to lie/cheat/steal for what it wants.

    Every so often the left will let its true colors shine through, its why we should be thankful for RfR.

    Consistency isn't really desirable for political pluralities. However, even when one thinks of "consistency" being a good thing, that's not what keeps libertarians hopelessly out of touch with the American public. Conservatives and liberals both value completely different ends and means. Libertarians are also incapable of carrying on a decent conversation with them in order to build bridges.

    That's why, again, why we shouldn't be impressed that libertarians somehow cracked the liberal code.
