This is an open letter to the Libertarians here on GT. I know I will draw fire and I know the other parties will respond unkindly, however I hope I reach the heart and minds of my fellow Libertarians. I am not posting this to debate, I am more interested in planting a seed of thought. I would never call myself a republican, there was a time I might, but not now. A conservative? Closer but too constrictive. For close to 30 years I have classified myself proudly as a Constitutional Libertarian. Now, after this new generation of people who call themselves Libertarians, who care less about the country but more about their principals and morals, I am thinking maybe they have tainted the term Libertarian to the point I don't want to be associated with them. You see, back in the late 70's and early 80's, we Libertarians knew we were a small party and needed to make an impact in the party closest to our beliefs. That's why Ron Paul is in the Republican party. He tried to change from within, knowing an outside third party stood no chance, YET. Now these younger Libertarians think it's all or nothing, and have the attitude that they don't care if Obama gets voted back in, their pride and morals are clear because they voted for Gary Johnson (another Republican until a few months ago). The process took over 200 years to get this f'ed up. It a'int gonna change in a few elections. I've been part of a movement for almost 30 years that is starting to finally take hold. The country is learning and the proof is all you new Libertarians. But to expect change by a dissenting vote to stand your ground is foolish. To allow things to go farther left to prove a point is pointless. The point is, You don't jump out of a hole that's been dug, you climb. Letting Obama have another 4 years because you held your principals doesn't help our country. If Mitt is elected and things don't change to the positive, at least it wasn't a change to more extreme socialism. It will take steps, not leaps.
