    I am a life long Democrat considering switching to the Libertarian Party. Neither party seems to want to respect the rights of individuals to pursue their dreams. The Democrats interfere with economic rights and the Republicans want to reinstitute the mass incarceration policies which have failed so badly and prosecute people for things which are no one else's business. We need to step back and rethink a lot of things. We need to go back to the Bill of Rights and the dream of the Founding Fathers that we would create something truly different here which would allow people to pursue their dreams free of government meddling.

    I know what you mean. IMO Libertarianism has some good ideas and in theory it would be great. However, with our current population and issues, I feel it just isn't viable. Also, they don't have strong uniting leadership, so it's a very fragmented movement. All of the Libertarians I know have a different interpretation and they are all full of it in some way.

    In a nutshell- Libertarian ideas=OK, Libertarian Party= not so much.

    This is cute considering the Democrats hate everyone to the point they are literally ripping each other apart. That's why I'm not as worried that those freaks will actually succeed in bringing back their socialist killing fields. They can't stand together. They Hate white men, white women, Asian men, and more people everyday. They hate speech, they hate comedians who make jokes they don't like. They are children throwing temper tantrums and they will throw each other under the bus at a moments notice. They are filth contaminating society.

    I mean half those idiots think Bernie could have won. Remember why he never got the chance to run against Trump? Oh yea the Democrats rigged the election against him.

    I'm just quoting this because seeing how Republicans are attacked for hating just makes me annoyed and I thought Id add to it.

    Altogether too much finger pointing on both sides of the political and ideological divide and not nearly enough honest self reflection.

    Who is the defacto modern day founder then? (Especially since this time they steered markedly down a different path from FDR and even JFK and maintained that path) And there are numerous sources that suggest he said this. It's an immensely damaging statement to the DNC brand thus there are those that try and spread doubt about its validity.

    I did stand up comedy in front of a group of libertarians who were in DC for some meeting. I said "I agree with you 100% that marijuana should be legalized. But I disagree with the idea that traffic lights and stop signs should be abolished..............especially if marijuana is legalized." I got a huge laugh. We have to keep certain government regulation - traffic laws, federal deposit insurance, food and drug laws (but they could be made more reasonable), child labor laws, etc. But there is a ton of crap we could get rid of and we absolutely have to roll back the out-of-control criminal "justice" system and ridiculous zoning restrictions on property rights.

    Sounds like me after Bush Cheney lied us into a quagmire in the Middle East after 911 fractured the American psyche

    You will be disappointed

    The Dems don't fight and are essentially a corrupt group of hypocrites who sold out under Clinton and haven't looked back

    You're reasons for leaving the GOP are valid, however.
