"It comes from decades of holding steadfast to PRINCIPLE, of speaking truth to power, and of doing the right things, not saying things that sound good."
That is a non sequitur. How can the Libertarian Party demonstrate that they "do the right things" when there are no Libertarians in the National Congress and maybe 1-2% of state and local governments? (and many of those run as "Independent"). [could also be a strawman, but you didn't provide a fictitious resultant action]
And futhermore, you added a begging the question fallacy. You say that the LP only "says" things that sound good as opposed to accomplishements. Well.....as much as I hate to bring it up.....what Ron Paul bills were passed? How many times did he get all the Republican members of congress to go along with him? Isn't that just "saying good things" and voting alone? Wasn't it his principles and philosophy of constitutional government that hooked us in the first place?
You are just ranting emotionally. I'll stick with thinking.
"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain
