The problem with the Libertarians is they only field candidates for the presidency and a few senate races. There is no grass roots or base for them. It's kind of like they are satisfied with having only 2 or 3% of the electorate to identify with them.
They're not active at the local level, at the county or town and city level. Only at the national level. Then too, only about half or less that identify with the Libertarian Party will actually vote for their candidates. Preferring to vote for the lesser of two evils from the two major parties. Unless the Libertarians drop down to the grass roots level, the local level and field candidates there, they'll be just a third name on the ballot with no real meaning and with no chance at all. Especially at the national level.
I never understood that.
It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
