Okay. Here's my plan for the Libertarian Party's future success: Create a 4th party who's platform is the grand prize from our two major parties. Take the moral/religious points of the Republicans, and combine them with the fiscal stands of the Democrats, and you have a winner: Surely the 'best' of both worlds, and a complete opposite of the LP. The contrast would be much easier to discern, and it would suffice to debate the ALP for all to understand the points. It would weaken the other two parties enough (I think) that people might break away from their flocks.
