"We must take small positive steps toward libertarianism." --Rhonda Jackson, actress

It means almost nothing that the Libertarian Party is the third largest political party in America. It's like saying Mormonism is the third largest branch of Christianity in America behind Protestantism and Catholicism, or saying Christianity is the third largest religion in India behind Hinduism and Islam. You need a magnifying glass to notice it. It's insignificance is its main attribute.

On the other hand, libertarian Republicans are making great strides. The stunning Republican winners in Virginia and New Jersey recently were not libertarians, but their campaigns downplayed social conservative issues and ran on issues of freedom and fiscal responsibility ... winning libertarian issues.

Libertarians can do more than take small steps, they can run with long strides ... by running as Republicans.

Is America now a fascist state?

a socialist governmental system led by a dominant party which seeks to control industry and commerce, and uses legislation and governmental decree to force Utopian programs on people.

one's natural state of being; a governmental system reflecting one's natural state, including voluntary funding and voluntary willingness to join and cooperate with some rules, but with no restrictions forced on people.

If you are just waking up to your innate libertarian side and want to investigate deeper the underlying nonsense of Obama's religion of government worship, give yourself the pleasure of reading Ayn Rand's epic and masterful novel, Atlas Shrugged

"God's laws will keep your minds at peace, because peace IS His Will, and His laws are established to uphold it. His are the laws of freedom, but yours are the laws of bondage. Since freedom and bondage are irreconcilable, their laws CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD TOGETHER. The laws of God work only for your good, and there ARE no other laws beside His. Everything else is merely lawLESS, and therefore chaotic." -Jesus Christ in A Course in Miracles

For the last election year studied (1998) some of the highest percentage of votes for Libertarian Party candidates were for candidates who had been studying free of charge the lessons of: Course in Political Miracles

“I did not understand what made me free, nor what my freedom is, nor where to look to find it. Father, I have searched in vain until I heard Your Voice directing me. Now I would guide myself no more. For I have neither made nor understood the way to find my freedom. But I trust in You. You Who endowed me with my freedom as Your holy Son will not be lost to me. Your Voice directs me." (Prayer from A Course in Miracles)

    I understand your POV, but my basic philosophy at the moment is that I want to win come 2010 and 2012. How can we insure that that will happen with an independent candidate?
