Before things get heated, I'd like to point out that they're normal hardworking people like the rest of us. You see them flipping burgers, waiting in welfare lines, and posting on internet messageboards.

There's no need to attack their character because you disagree with their political beliefs.

I'm a social libertarian, though not economic. As far as foreign policy, I find libertarianism enticing, but often unrealistic when considering US relations with other nations.

Really? Gary Johnson was the first actual Libertarian they've nominated in 20 years or so..

Yes he was. Although he was ironically still less Libertarian than Ron Paul. The last 3 elections have put me off on electoral politics. I'm not sure how much it matters what president we get. I guess I have voted for some city councel members that I knew were libertarians but that's about all I do any more.

If I had to pick a party to affiliate with it's libertarian, no doubt.

However I am in favor of abolishing the party system.

Pretty good to me except they don't have a strong stance on certain ideas, which is very strange.

You're using words where the don't belong. Like 'Right Wing' and 'Communist'.

Maybe when Libertarians are in charge and everything goes to shit that argument might have more credence. For now we don't have a libertarian society to judge. We do however have pretty good evidence on the failure of Communist states and the reasons for it.
