But I mean what do you think happens when weed becomes legal? A corporation is going to put them out of business and make weed an evil business thing just like anything else.

Do you guys honestly think that impeaching Trump would be a good idea? Do you really want Mike Pence as your President? How do we get people to stop participating in the left/right paradigm and vote independent [or maybe even Libertarian]?

The Constitutional party would be worthwhile if they weren't founded on religion [Christianity].

I find it hard to believe that a mass civil war is going to break out. There may be small armed domestic conflicts in irregular patches across the country but ultimately most of the population is too unmotivated to plunge into all out war 1860 style.

Culture war participants aren't willing to seek out middle ground because they see it as a kowtow to the opposite side.

I'd like to think that if the actual president gets impeached that his vice pres who nobody ever gave half a **** about would have the power of a bath toy cause who ****ing cares?

nah it is. i know libertarians have an illusion that actual libertarians are what their party is about but guess who the base for your party is. it's rednecks, evangelicals, and fox news fans. nothing about what you care about is on the agenda. only what they care about.

A civil war certainly would be exciting.

I mean the party has crossover definitely but that's obviously because of some shared values. Most conservatives view libertarians as pot-smoking fence sitters so idk where this asspull about them being Fox News fans came from.

No, you're thinking of the Tea Party.

Libertarians are generally fiscally conservative and socially liberal.
