Nevada Libertarian Head:‘I Have Conceded Defeat: We Are Infested With Idiots’

Despite the strong presence of libertarians in the United States, the official Libertarian Party doesn’t have particularly strong membership, and earlier this month the former chairman of the Libertarian Party of Nevada shared his thoughts about the viability of the party and the kind of “knuckleheads” he’s had to put up with, encouraging more people to get involved in state party politics so the Nevada Libertarians don’t get dragged down by “idiots.”

Joseph Silvestri said at the outset in a blog post that he is “looking forward to not being Chairman anymore,” and admitted,“I have conceded defeat.” He blogged just days ahead of the Libertarian Party of Nevada’s 2013 state convention to get people to show up, because as far as he’s concerned, most of the party members just don’t care and the rest “are mostly useless.”

In a way he's right. So many of those who claim to be libertarians fall back on the old "lesser of two evils" tactic when they fill out their ballots. There is no such thing as the lesser of two evils.

Libertarians are just right wing fanatics in wolves clothing.

You mean by continuing all of the crappy policies from the previous administration? Yeah, that's working out just fine isn't it?

'Official Libertarian Party' is kind of an oxymoron, since most libertarians don't believe in official politics to begin with. As a person with strong libertarian leanings, my motto is : I wouldn't belong to any organization that would have me as a member.
