... of this attitude:
OK, Libertarians you proved your point, you're the kingmakers here. Now suck it up and prevent disaster.Someone explain to me why anyone (let alone libertarians) should vote for a candidate that doesn't hold a plurality of your values?
One of my senators is Saxby Chambliss (thankfully retiring), who, as a Republican would seem to be the default candidate for the frustrated libertarian in GA. But he doesn't ascribe to even a bare minimum of libertarian-ish policies ... why should I vote for him.
And why should conservatives be the ones who continually have to hold their noses come election time? Why can't conservatives start voting for the libertarians, especially when the libertarian candidate is much more likely to form a government that appeals to conservatives than Republicans?
The bi-factional single party we have now is hopelessly broken; voting for squishy Republicans who claim to appeal to the squishy middle is simply a recipe for prolonging the death of America.
