Playing with it?

The Democrats, it seems, aren't the only ones who take their base for granted.

Having been irritated beyond tolerance by the feckless and seemingly aimless behavior of Republicans, I have decided to change my voting registration - but to what?

The Democratic Party is the party of Socialists, Neo-Pagans and Libertines. They are not an option.

The party whose platform and beliefs are in closest concert with mine is the Libertarian Party. Known throughout the rest of the world as the Liberal Party, they believe that government is a threat to liberty and must necessarily be kept to an absolute minimum.

So, then, this should be a 'no-brainer', right?

Sadly, Libertarians, as a party, are a semi-comical group of mental masturbators who sit around circle-jerking without creating much in the way of a communicable - let alone workable - plan for governing. As it stands now, the Libertarian Party is run by people who are far more comfortable with theory than reality. Like the leaders of the short-lived Confederate States of America, they are so determined to stand on principle that they won't make compromises necessary to effectively fight.
It’s not much of an option.

I guess I'll just have to register as a Libertarian - then hold my nose and keep voting Republican.

"In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem. From time to time we've been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. Well, if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? All of us together, in and out of government, must bear the burden. The solutions we seek must be equitable, with no one group singled out to pay a higher price.
