why i have no faith in the Libertarian Party to do anything except fuck up libertarianism for the rest of us

"I think the important thing now is to make sure Obama is not elected,and that means in my mind, I would love for a libertarian like Gary Johnson the two term governor of New Mexico would actually get elected President, but I think we all know that’s not going to happen so therefore it’s got to be Romney there is no choice."
 Who said it?

Ron Paul? Rand Paul? Andrew Napolitano? Neal Boortz?

(Amazing how quickly one can run through the list of quasi-famous sort-of libertarians.)

Anyway, the answer is Wayne Root, who was the LP's VP nominee in 2008 and is currently a member of the Libertarian National Committee.

The mind reels.

I dallied with the LP in my youth. A lot of brilliant but socially inept people. That's why the best bet for libertarians is to try to gain influence and, ultimately, take over one of the existing parties.

Now the trick is figuring out which one gives you a better chance at traction.

that is what the socialists did with the democrat party.

I know a few socialists who would find that hysterical.
