    I find it sad that the party of freedom should get such critical treatment. Wonder why freedom seems to be the enemy of both the Dems and the GOP? Hmmmm wouldn’t be that both parties want to rob the American people of their freedoms would it? Maybe they simply have different lists of freedoms they think the US people would be better without.
    Ron Paul is a freedom fighter. I have to wonder if this renewed attack on ‘libertarians’ is a thinly disguised attack on Ron Paul because both parties know he stands for the values and freedoms that the mast majority of Americans want. Could it be that the Dems in particular fear he might get the GOP nomination or introduce topics into the debate that the American people want?
    The vast majority of Americans want out of Iraq.
    The vast majority of Americans want our Mexico boarder sealed.
    The vast majority of Americans want a balanced federal budget.
    Why is it that neither party can implement the will of the people?

    As a Libertarian, should we pay road taxes by the mile and charge everybody by installing toll booths every few miles on the Interstate?
    As a Libertarian, should we have a BTU tax, on natural gas, gasoline, propane, electricity, wood?

    Talk about intrusive Government:
    Should Virginia be requiring people to wear safety belts?
    Should teenagers be barred from shuttling more than one non-related person in their cars?
    Should teenagers be barred from talking on their cell phones while driving?
    Should Pot be legal in the United States, it kills less people than alcohol piosoning?

    Would a Libertarian majority in Congress be calling for impeachment of Gonzales, Cheney or anyone inthis administration? Why or why not?
    What would a majority Libertarian Congress (without veto over ride power) Now send to the President over the Iraq funding that the Dems now face?
    How do Libertarians differ on this if they were in the Dems position?

    Libertarian’s or for that matter all third partys usually show up during an election cycle.
    They don’t seem to build on a caucus. Building ties with the two major political partys that will ensure some sort of alliance and open communication that they will in fact require if they ever do gain seats and or power.
    Why would I vote for a libertarian or any third party when it is obvious that in doing so is one, tossing my vote away, just making an unheard statement, taking a vote away from one of the major partys that will favor the more of two evils by losing my vote?
    Wouldn’t the enacting of the nation wide popular vote from the electorial college advantage third party’s ability to draw voting electability?
    Where do libertarians stand on issues of Labor, health care, FCC fairness, enviroment, etc, in short?
    To be hoonest I see (and know of some personally) more unhappy Republicans in the independent and libertarian partys. Why?
