The Libertarian Party: Pros and Cons
The LP has become deaf and mute to the cause of liberty.
The LP continues to frame the issues and serve as a bookend for the other parties, that keeps them from getting away with claiming only they represent liberty. They are the refuge for voters who can't abide the two main parties. However, since they don't offer to sell influence, they don't get the money the others do, and there are limits to what anyone can do without money. It is corruption that draws financial support. The LP is not for sale, and therefore, since almost everyone wants corruption, money doesn't come to them.

Is the Libertarian Party trying a coup on liberty by selling itself to the Rebublican Party? I'm sure many liberty oriented folk are aware of this issue. I'd love to see some discussion on this topic. If you're not familiar, here's a good example: http://www.reason.com/news/printer/126633.html
