RE: Michael Badnarik: "Voting for the lesser of two evils is the coward's way out"
You guys are jumping the gun a bit -- my point is that without some sort of track record here, the possibility of electing a libertarian president is just about zero. The way to increase that number is to create a legitimate political power base on which to build. You know, elect a few local officials, eventually get a person or two in Congress, then add to that and make a run at the Senate or a gubernatorial race. Baby steps, baby steps. The chance of electing a libertarian president right now is about the same as that of electing a woman or a minority president 50 years ago. These folks have made exactly the type of progress I'm describing here, and look where they are now -- right in the mainstream where they belong.
