  •  Make the Dems "Anti-Libertarian" instead (0+ / 0-)

    You could make an argument that back in the 1970s and 80s there were some libertarian-leaning elements of the Democrat Party.  Jerry Brown was sort of libertarian, especially on marijuana legalization.  Cong. Tim Penny of MN leaned libertarian on some economic issues.  

    But the Democrat Party of 2007 is mainly Authoritarian, anything but Libertarian.  

    Joe Lieberman, who opposes Islamo-Fascism, and Bill Richardson, who is halfway decent on budget matters, are the closest two you all have to being libertarian-leaners.  

    Meanwhile the GOP is flooded with Libertarians like Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska, Gov. Butch Otter of Idaho, Cong. Ron Paul, Cong. Jeff Flake, Cong. Dana Rohrabacher, tons of State Legislators like Tom McClintock in CA.  

    Let's have a real two-party system.  I suggest the Dems go all the way.  Move more in the anti-Libertarian direction.  Propose more and bigger government.  Let the Republicans keep and hold us Libertarian voters. We're fine with that.
