Republicans Marginalizing Libertarians
|Libertarian Party Website|
A republican does not equal a Libertarian and a Libertarian does not equal a republican. Yet, we have republicans taking over every Libertarian initiative. And, the Libertarians are just laying down and taking it. You have complete con artists like Wayn Allyn Root, weaseling into the Libertarian party and dictating policy. The man should be in jail. He is a black eye on the most constitutional party, since John Hancock signed his name. You have Dick Army taking over the Tea Party, which was originated and conceived of by the Libertarian Party.
The Republican party is the most disorganized mess since fall of the Roman Empire, and yet somehow the Libertarian party is worse. What party, in the history of the country, fields absolutely no candidates for any local and state offices at a time when the country is reeling from both main parties giving the country the ole ‘what for’ without so much as a reach around? I mean the country is ripe for a 3rd party that espouses complete economic healing for the masses, and yet the Libertarian party is nearly silent and stymied. They let Fox friggin News take over the Tea Party for God’s sakes.
California is trying to pass a decriminalizing marijuana law, a victimless crime, and yet the Libertarian Party is completely silent. The Libertarian Party should be all over this, taken credit for getting this started, and galvanizing the country on this very issue. That is, if what’s on their website is actually true of what they believe:
1.5 Crime and Justice
Government exists to protect the rights of every individual including life, liberty and property. Criminal laws should be limited to violation of the rights of others through force or fraud, or deliberate actions that place others involuntarily at significant risk of harm. Individuals retain the right to voluntarily assume risk of harm to themselves. We support restitution of the victim to the fullest degree possible at the expense of the criminal or the negligent wrongdoer. We oppose reduction of constitutional safeguards of the rights of the criminally accused. The rights of due process, a speedy trial, legal counsel, trial by jury, and the legal presumption of innocence until proven guilty, must not be denied. We assert the common-law right of juries to judge not only the facts but also the justice of the law.
If an obscure hedge fund manager can go from zero name recognition to being the number 3 republican candidate for senate, by himself, – yes I’m talking about Peter Schiff – then how come an entire battalion of so called libertarians can’t field a Libertarian candidate?
|A Republican is Not a Libertarian|
Why is it no news organization ever ran a story on Libertarian candidates during this very heated campaign season. This was the most active off year campaign in the history of modern campaigns. Obama’s approval rating is dropping faster than a fat man’s weight on high intensity interval training, yet the Libertarian party is silent. Everyone hates Obamacare, and where are the Libertarians to put the Democrats nose to the grind?
Ron Paul and Rand Paul are great and all, but they are NOT running as Libertarian candidates. Stop putting your token into their slot. Get your own candidate and stand behind him.
It’s like this: A friend of mine works as a doorman to a fairly popular night club here in town. One night people kept coming to the door and looking in and leaving. Finally he turns to me, counter in hand, and says “had any of them stayed for more than 5 minutes we would have had 1,000 patrons in the club, more people than any of the big named clubs in town put together.”
This is exactly what the Libertarian party is doing. They are putting their tokens into the hats of Republicans, thinking they are the same as Libertarians, when if they just fielded their own candidates and stuck by them, they’d have a firm grasp on the political arena. There are so many people that are awakened to the shenanigans and the complete illegality of the house and senate, yet the Libertarians are silent.
Libertarians Don’t Know Jack About Politics
|You Expect Republican / Democrats to Just Let You In|
Harry Reid beat out Repulican candidate Sharon Angle for the U.S. Senate seat for Nevada. He was down by 4 points in every poll across the board. He called in favors and got nearly every casino to bus their non-english speaking employees to go vote for him. He called in favors to get the teachers union to have a 5 day furlow for “teacher’s conferences” lasting up till Wednesday, so they could vote for him. He called in favors to give teachers raises, when the local and state budgets are empty, so they could vote for him.
This is politics. Not completely legal, but you don’t go to jail unless you get caught.
Libertarians have zero inclination about what politics are. They are not connected to the global elite. They are not connected to big business. In fact all of those groups run counter to anything remotely smacking of constitutionality. The entire point of a Libertarian party is to get the government out of bed with business and big business in particular, and yet they have no clue how to go about it. You can’t say you want to be a fox while wearing a rabbit suit, heck, they don’t even come to the fox games toting a fox hunting gun, either / or would be fine.
I just don’t get it.
