    Been waiting for this Liberal in Libertarian clothes to chime in with his "wisdom", been keeping pretty quiet but I knew the selfish 3rd party voter/promoter just couldn't keep quiet, yes I said selfish, because it is, when you vote to make yourself feel like you did the right thing, instead of for the good of the country as a whole.

    Sure, if that's how you want to see it. I didn't do enough to keep O from being reelected. Neither did you or anyone else. We all failed.

    Pointing fingers helps what? Other than assuring that the Republican Party doesn't grow, I guess.

    Pointing fingers is the first step in solving ANY problem. Find the source/sources of the problem before you can find the solution to the problem. Management 101!

    The premise of this thread is that conservatives and libertarians need to form a coalition of sorts, right?

    How does this help? How does blaming one part of the coalition make us stronger? How does this help us win in the future.
    Speak what you really think in anger, and you're driving a wedge between the groups. You're not helping anything.

    You're pissed. Fine, whatever. Quit cutting off your nose. Or if you refuse to at least quit insulting people you admittedly need, don't be shocked when they refuse to help you ever in the future.

    Actually, apathy is our biggest problem.

    There are 207,000,000+ registered voters.
    Plus 60,ooo,ooo possible, but not registered voters.
    Maybe 120 million voted. 147 mill plus did not vote.
    0bama won by 3 million.

    Apathy is our biggest problem.

    Attacking people is the worst management action possible. Correct actions. Correct attitudes. Fire attitudes or actions. Don't ever make it personal.

    Really, are you serious?? You are a third Party advocate and you Honesty think you are not the Man with the Biggest Wedge. God help us all with logic like yours.

    Show me where I insulted people in this thread???

    I can show you where you insulted me...

    I worked hard for Chip Cravaack and the rest of the Rep. in my district, it didn't work out to well as we all know, but I'll be damned if I am going to sit hear and be insulted by you telling me that I voted Obama, Moderator or NOT.

    Third Party, my a$$.

    Big difference between "attacking people" and pointing fingers at the problem. Management 101.

    Republican leaders aren't supporting conservative politics. They certainly talk conservative principles, but once in office, they govern much like big government liberals. Even now with Obama in office, Republicans act like the loyal opposition and talk conservative. But talking the talk isn't the same as walking the walk.

    When it comes to politicians, don't listen to what they say, look at what they do.

    If Republicans had won the Presidency, how much would have changed? Would the USA PATRIOT Act get repealed? Would the NDAA get repealed? Would Obamacare get repealed? Would the debt and deficits be dealt with? They protest bailouts, reckless spending and expansion of government, but once in office, they end up supporting the same things. Maybe slightly smaller versions, but it's still the same concept.

    We can sit here and blame libertarians for Obama winning, but the real reason he won is because there are more takers than makers in this country and the Republican Party is just more of the same IMO.

    I'm sorry everyone is so upset, but I now don't believe that any amount of 'get out the vote' strategies would have helped, I say again, with THAT many takers we've become a minority.
    That segment of the populace is growing, it was inevitable.
    And of course, there's the left wing media.
    If ya'll wanna lay blame, that's where it lies, IMHO.

    Apathy is second, only to ignorance.
    We have a generally ignorant populace.
    This election is the starkest confirmation yet.
    Our utterly corrupt press is a chief cause of this.

    Don't forget what this thread was originally about, The "Third Party" movement, or in other words the " Me Party", and "The to Hell with the Country Party".
