    I say republican party and not republicans because I've noticed that many republicans don't know enough about other voters to know who the real enemy is when it comes to being elected to POTUS.

    Libertarians are the voters who are killing the Republican parties chances of taking the white house. Before anyone says bullshit they are taking from the Democrats as well... Think on this... How many Republicans define themselves as libertarian... how many Democrats?

    The point is that the Republican party, rightly so, are scared of losing those votes from libertarians. They are also afraid of them actually having any say in the platform of the republican party because those libertarian beliefs pull the teeth of the corporate machine that is running politics through politicians.

    Gary Johnson's plan to boost the economy... Abolish the Corporate Tax, replace it with a Consumption Tax. How in gods name does any true republican not support that? Why aren't corporations absolutely throwing money at this guy trying to get him in the Whitehouse? Obviously they make more money keeping status quo.

    And this is where the asshole in me comes out... See... Attacking Obama isn't going to get Mitt into the big chair... The people stopping that from happening is independents and libertarians. They are the enemy of that goal. And even they aren't your enemy, you're just either too fuck'n stupid/ignorant/or sheep to the republican/corporation cause to figure that out.

    I agree to an extent, I dont like third parties....that's why I like the tea party picking off polticians, it's actually happening....from within....
    Now I like alot of Johnson's economic policies, but there is a lot of work to explain to counter the socialism taught in schools to get a majority of people to back it.....or a major paradigm swing......
    The reason people dont want to get rid of corporate/income taxes is they are huge methods of control.....liberals talk about getting rid of loopholes, but they never do it...because they want to control people with the tax code.
    They like the graduated tax code, because it pits people against each other and that's how socialists work and win, hence they looooove identity politics....what is a black issue? does it not effect everyone????????

    Most Republicans are conservatives and while conservatives claim to believe in small government they really don't. They are just as happy to take advantage of big government when it suits their purposes. What I have seen in recent years, particularly during the Bush administration, is that so called conservatives are really just social conservatives, not economic conservatives or believers in personal freedom and liberty.

    Libertarians actually walk the talk when it comes to personal freedom, liberty, and limited government, and that's the reason you've seen us pull away from supporting the GOP as a group over the past decade. The Republican Party does not truly believe in these things and that is evident in the way you've seen them treat folks like Ron Paul and his supporters who actually do.

    It's a valid argument considering Teachers Unions have a history of primarily backing Democrats. 95% of all donations were given to Democrats in 2008.

    16 trillion dollars worth of big government should have them concerned. However speaking the truth on our fiscal condition wont get him elected either.

    Repubs need to fight as dirty as democrats.

    Yeah, that's what I said about the tea party picking off these more liberal republicans.....I love it, I've never seen so many liberal incumbants and party favorites lose as in the last couple of years.
