Just found this site... Loving it so far...I have been looking for somewhere to discus this... I am a Libertarian leaning Republican. I hesitate to call myself Libertarian because of the Libertarian Parys past, some of the people associated with it, conservative the image it has. My thought is this. I would think that a Libertarian Party that was organized and strong would have HUGE appeal. When I look at the electorate, I see a lot of people that liked what Romney said about how exceptional America is, about conservative fiscal policies etc...but they could not get over pro-choice issues, or issues around gay marriage etc. I also see that on the Liberal side, the Social issues they win on in general in America (everything from gay marriage to the move across the country to legalize marijuana etc.) I would think that a party that split that middle on social issues, and was fiscally conservative would have some huge draw. My question is...is the Libertarian party "real enough" to achieve some kind of critical mass, and challenge or change the face of politics? Or would that just split the fiscal conservative (Republican) vote? Is there any hope at all of a Socially moderate fiscally conservative Republican candidate...or even better...movement?
