You need to take a look around...

...and see what planet you're on. Power respects only power. Those currently in power will not give it up unless they are forced to give it up. Unless you plan on launching a violent revolution, the only way to force them to give up power is to beat them in elections. Thus there is nothing "ironic" about libertarians (rightfully wary of power) trying to put their own into power. This is the only realistic means we have of saving ourselves from encroaching tyranny.
