Now, in your own words, you prove you're nothing but a hypocritical moron. If you were a real libertarian, you would have voted for Gary Johnson
No. One has to use basic common sense. The Libertarian party has how many seats in the House and how many in the Senate? How many Governors? Until it shows itself to be... to vote their candidate is but a wasted vote.

You do not start out at the top.

The one official party, the Democratic Republicans, does not permit real competition. No matter which of their two candidates wins we get "more of the same". In spite of the propaganda from Fox and MSNBC... not a dime's worth of difference".

What polarization? Let us go down the list.

Bush's out of control national debt = Obama's out of control national debt

Bush's government bailouts of fatcats = Obama's government bailouts of fatcats

Bush's high unemployment rates = Obama's high unemployment rates

Bush's reckless foreign policy = Obama's reckless foreign policy

In spite of the mindless drivel on cable news Obama is but a Bush clone. His only really new idea was borrowing Romneycare from Massachusetts. Outside of that... Bush's fourth term.

What we have is not polarization... it is conformity... same center left policies from both parties.

Reagan would win easily. The teabaggers are quite naive. All they wanted from Romney was for him to lie to them in the primaries. Like McCain and Bush before him they knew he lacked their nativist know-nothing yahoo worldview. His record as governor of Massachusetts was hardly...

Reagan was good at pretending he was not running up the nation's credit cards and borrowing from only the worst sort of despots overseas to keep up on interest payments... just like Obama.

Using your logic, how does the Libertarian Party show it's relevence, if voting for one of their candidates is a waste of time? So you flipped a coin when you voted, right?

How to buiuld a party?

You start by electing folks to congress. Once you show yourself to be a national party then your presidential candidates can be taken seriously. A party is built from the bottom up.

Someone probably not on the ballot in all 50 states...

You said voting for a third party is waste of time. Now you say to elect them to congress. I'll ask you again, how do you do that if even you won't vote that way? And there won't be a viable third party ever. The people with all the purse strings are not going to go that route. They don't want to start at the bottom.

Not very bright are you? You do not vote in the presidential election for a party which does not have enough support to elect folks to congress. It is a waste of time.

If there were a handful of Libertarian governors and senators their presidential candidates would have to be taken seriously.

You're not anywhere near 'bright'. Do you read your own posts? Since you think Mittens and Obama and the Repubs and Dems are the same, and voting for the Libertarian candidate is a waste of time, you must not have voted. Big bucks political supporters are in no way switching to support Libertarians or any other minority party. You're out of luck, a third party will never get enough financing to be credible. The only way it would is if we had publicly funded elections. And there isn't a politician from either party that will touch that with a ten foot pole.

So, you are saying that if people are not as smart as you, they should all be slaves. And you get to make the test as to who is smart enough not to be a slave. Just think how much power you can have. Those people aren't smart enough to want food anyway. When they starve to death, it's only because they didn't remember to eat.

There are differences between democrats and republicans, but on the major issues they are way to similar to make substantial changes from the others. For example, bush started wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The democrats did very little to stop those wars. Even after Obama took office, it was many years before he claimed Iraq was ended, even now we still have troops there, in harm's way. The war in Afghanistan continues and the democrats have done almost nothing to stop it.

Now consider Obama care, being almost identical to Romney care, each giving billions to insurance companies while not really lowering the cost of the insurance allowing for the continuation of transferring the wealth from the middle class to the insurance company CEOs.

Now consider the Pat Act. It is very difficult to even pretend any citizen has any freedom in the USA with the government claiming the right to imprison anyone, at any time, no evidence need be given. The GOP congress passed this monstrosity, bush signed it while the democrats did nothing to prevent it. Obama extended it, further enshrining our loss of freedom in the NDAA.

While the GOP hurts our economy more, the democrats do little to stop them. We know what needs to be done to get people back to work, and Obama has had 4 years and hasn't done those things.

As to electing a third party candidate, you are correct. They are not viable at this time. Instant runoff elections would help, but as you correctly state, neither party would touch that.

No body mentioned slave but you.

It has become acceptable in society for unwed childbirth. Actually it is celebrated in the Democrat party. More freebies.

Do you think getting an education is important to children if their family lives are messed up?

I was not talking about unwed childbirth. I was talking about wage slaves.

Unwed childbirth is as celebrated in the democratic party as much as abortion is celebrated in the republican.

Education is always important. You for example, would get quite an education by simply listening to someone with a different point of view. Perhaps you could find out that liberals are not looking for freebies, on the contrary, they want to stop the freebies going to the rich. If the rich want a few extra boats, let them work for it, instead of just taking money from those who do.

Maybe in a free society if people worked hard and had the ambition and didn't want to listen to some community organizer feeling their pain for the wrong decisions they made and promising them things they don't have because he is going to steal it from someone that worked for it. Life would be better.

WASHINGTON – The outcome of the Nov. 6 presidential election shocked almost everyone, with very few analysts expecting Barack Obama to win so decisively and to take so many of the “battleground” states that seemed to be pulling toward Romney.
But then the reports of voting irregularities started leaking out, then gushing out – like the 59 different Philadelphia voting divisions in which Mitt Romney received zero votes compared to Obama’s 19,605. And the Cleveland precinct in which Obama beat Romney 542 to 0.(In fact, Romney received zero votes in nine Cleveland precincts.) And that’s just the beginning.

Funny...I heard about the 59 voting districts in Philly without a single Romney vote...and I don't watch FOX.
Nearly 48 million people voted Republican. FOX isn't that popular!
What's troubling to me is that the only response you can come up with regarding voter fraud is to slam a news network. So, fraud is okay with you as long as the guy you voted for came out ahead?

The Republican party fired that firm. What did the Democrats do about their voter fraud? Pretend like they knew nothing. Democrats are responsible for the biggest voter fraud in history. Remember ACORN?
