I think the best thing we can do to send a message, be a Libertarian.Submitted by bigeasylu on Fri, 11/02/2012 - 18:11
I think the best we can do as registered Republicans, clothed in Libertarian garb, is to simply drop from the Republican Party, and be who we are, Libertarians. The "minority" that was such a disturbance these past 4 years can join the Libertarian Party, and instantly make it a viable party in 2016 and beyond. Enough of this 2 party monopoly. Could you imagine if every registered Republican, that shares our principals, could loudly tell the establishment, ENOUGH? We are a strong, intelligent, viable, and GROWING 20% of this country, and we have a voice. Like a money bomb, we could just switch on the same day, send a message to the GOP and change the face of politics, forever. I would love to see the look on the GOP chairman's face when in one day, the GOP tent became smaller by 35-40% and Libertarian tent grew those percentages the same day. How would they spin that?
Don't get me wrong, I'm in California, i'm a registered Republican, but only because I was going to vote for Ron Paul. And you best believe, I am going to write in RON PAUL on my ballot come Tuesday, only because my State allows it. I would hate to live in a state that doesn't allow a write in vote, I suppose it is because I would have a hard time voting for anyone else. I just think this would be the best way to tell the GOP and everyone else that we refuse to be treated the way we were. We may not be right, but we play by the rules, and we've earned a voice in the Elections going forward.
It was disgusting, and we deserve better. Everyone does.
I don't know, just a thought I guess...
