It would be smarter to make every party a minor party. Any and all parties can be co-opted or taken over quite easily, as we have seen with the GOP/DNC. I rather much have voters vote on policies, the record of each candidate, and their principle. I don't see much principle in party politics. All they care about is getting into a position of power. This may not be true for the Libertarian party as of yet, but give any party power, and sooner or later it will be corrupted. Voters should be free thinkers, and really, there should be no parties. Imagine that. A group of candidates for president who cannot hide behind their party, but have to voice their own positions?
I agree with much of the Libertarian Philosophy, including the fact that it is wrong to see people in groups. That's what parties are, groups. I don't want any "group" politics.
