    How would a libertarian rise up in a 2 party system?

    this makes me think back to a comment attributed to one of our contries founders. I don't know which one or, even if it is true. Our Constitution was written for a moral people. I do not support all the Libertarian parties social positions.

    I scored; Libertarian Conservative. Real conservatism borders on Libetarian ideals. Guess I should have voted for Ron Paul.

    Anyway, the fastest growing party in America today is the Independant Party. Until the Republicans free themselves of the social issues they want to get mired in, they are doomed to defeat at the ballot box!

    How long before the Libertarian party is actually a viable option that is not throwing a vote away. Same goes with the green party. Not much different than throwing a vote away for McCain as a conservative

    I would love to see the Libertarians stand up and stop claiming they are Republicans.

    I'm sure you would. That would be great for the liberals. Unfortunately, those of us who fall in the libertarian/conservative grey area are people without a party but are definitely against liberalism, so we don't have much of a choice. This may be difficult to believe, but many of us "on the right" are not bible-thumping hicks. Many of us believe in individual liberty, individual responsibility and strong national defense as key values. So we can chose between the Democrats who openly tell us that they don't believe in our values or the Republicans who lie to us and tell us that they do believe in our values. Either way, we're screwed.
