This is why the Libertarian party will never be anything. Spout some leftist dogma "White Fragility" nonsense. Immediately backtrack because 90% of your would-be supporters don't subscribe to Wokism horse-shit.

So Trump is going to be the lesser of 3 evils now? We really are living in the twilight zone.

I have been actively anti-racist my entire adult life Jo. BLM is not about race, it's about big government..... certainly not something the Libertarian Party should be #supporting. smh

Pretty sure that’s not why.

I think it’s cuz their number 1 and 1A agenda items are defunding/abolishing social security (which the left and the old right[so...most of the right] hate) and public education. Those are 2 programs that are essential to American life that they directly challenge.

Social Security will be gone one way or the other by the time I retire. Public Education as a whole is a corrupt nightmare.

You are free to disagree. Clearly you are not in the category of "would-be supporter" I referred to.

When your socialist boycott doesn’t seem to be working.

I have never bought any Goya products but I will from now on. Not because I'm some huge Trump fanboy, but because the Goya CEO stood up to the twitter mob losers and did not back track. We eat a lot of Mexican dishes at our house and I hear the Goya products are really good. I just never knew that so I've always stuck standard stuff we usually buy.

My point is that the Republican Party is ideologically diverse. A major part of the party feels like you indicate on social issues... while another part would consider themselves libertarian leaning as they vote for Republican for economic reason first and some social reasons but understand liberal social points.

So why doesn’t the libertarian party pull these people? The main reason is probably a lack of passion by these type of voters, while they are as reliable of voters as it gets, they’re career oriented by nature and investing a ton of time into politics isn’t likely. Still tho, you’d wager that some activists would try to just see if the power of this sector (in numbers) could overpower the other sectors of the Republican Party and pull that way, wouldn’t you? Except that never happens because the full time activists that would be pulling things that way are way too focused on Social Security and Public education. They are trying to be system disrupters when the very group most likely to empower them through numbers specifically value NO disruptions and continuity. Therefore they’ll never matter.
