Ran across an interesting forum ...

I found a thread on a forum from the year 2000. Looks like nobody has posted there in 12 years. I have no idea what the website is about, but the thread itself is "Why do libertarians do poorly in general elections?"

Again ... this is from the year 2000. This is a particularly interesting dicussion because many non-libertarians, even anti-libertarians, weigh in on the discussion but there is very little bashing. There are some very good insights on why libertarians (they are specifically talking about the Libertarian Party) do poorly in elections -- and this would, of course, include Ron Paul's 1988 run as the LP presidential candidate.

With the hindsight of 12 years later, it is interesting to reflect that we have the EXACT same problems today.

What's that old saying about repeating the same thing over and over ...
