Here's what I don't understand about the people who favor third party or independent politics and say that working in the GOP is futile because of the corruption - you're going to have to fight that corruption either way! A liberty candidate, whether running for the LP or the GOP or Indy or anything else is still going to face the MSM, the deep pockets of the establishment, the dirty tricks of the major parties. You don't escape that by leaving the GOP. All you do, it seems to me, by leaving the GOP is give up the possibility of better media coverage, easier ballot access, and the various other perks that come along with being a candidate in one of the major parties - in exchange for what? It seems like it's some kind of moral (or, as you say, idealistic) argument: "the GOP is evil, so we shouldn't associate with them...." Well, yea, but I say hold your nose and dive in if that's what offers the best chances of bringing about the political changes we so desperately need.
