"I think it might be important to point out that this country is a one-party country. Half of that party is called Republican and half is called Democrat. It doesn’t make any difference. All the really good ideas belong to the Libertarians."

Brilliant observation and obvious to those who don't suffer from the left / right bias. Which is after all, just a dog and pony show any way...

    Libertarians are the only ones who really believe in small government and lower, much lower, taxes. I support and am a member of the Libertarian Party. We also want to end the horror known as The war on Drugs. Check out LEAP.cc on the web to see why this 'War" is destroying this country.

    Well, I don't know so much about the second half of his statement, but I do have to agree with the first half. I don't remember who coined the term "Republicrats" but I think that's just about right.

    Libertarian - You mean those folks who truly believe in adhering and upholding every nuance of the U.S. Constitution, i.e., this nation's Supreme Rule of Law? Well, ALRIGHT and AMEN!

    Generally, Libertarians are not 'party-men' but they are going to have to start banding together if we are to stop the one-party system.
