    The major problem is the narrow appeal. Where the Repubs can win in rural areas, they get trounced in the more populated areas. Nationally, the only demographic they win is white men over 55 years of age. Hard to win the White House with such a narrow appeal.

    The future is with those willing to be Fiscally responsible and socially tolerant. That's the way the younger generations sees it. Unlike the Repubs or Teas, Libertarians are inclusive to all demographics. Among our ranks are people rejected by the Repubs/Teas such as women, Asians, black, gays, younger white. The Dems have the Hispanic and black vote wrapped up. I just don't see a future for the Repubs/Teas.

    If you truly believe the Repubs/Conservatives have rejected ANYONE, you have more "loop" then even I imagined……..have bow tie dude repeat that twenty times before beddy-bye time each night and you'll have him believing it also. Now……if you'd like to say Repubs/Conservatives (rank & file) have rejected liberal/progressive ideals……..then I'd agree.

    Maybe "reject" wasn't a good word choice. "Very narrow and limited appeal" is a better choice of words.

But you have to admire Franco's enthusiasm... the big fear we all have is that the Libertarians actually get more than 3% of the vote in our National elections....that splits the votes away from Republican's....and the Democrats may win on that.....Ross Perot another third party candidate did this once before...I am sure that the Democrats will do all they can to help this happen....
    I admire his determination to change us all. But I also shake my head and wonder. He will figure it out in a few years of banging his head against a wall! Good luck Franco.

    No head bangin here! I've made my cash and lived my life. I've done just about everything I've wanted in 63 years. I'm just trying to give back to my country.

    Just remember, the only thing certain in life is death and change.
