I've voted for the LP

I've voted for the LP candidate in the last couple of presidential elections. In 2008, he didn't do so well. That's okay. The growing RP movement and wave of libertarianism meant that the LP candidate would do much better in 2012, right? Well, I voted for him, along with 1% of the country. 1%. That's just sad. The sad reality is that the LP doesn't stand a snowball's chance in hell of winning a major election. Sure, if both of the paid for candidates suck, then vote for the LP guy... but if somehow a decent GOP or Democrat sneaks through, then vote for that guy. At least he/she has a shot of winning something and making a difference.
