According to this story, the Libertarian Party is hoping to wield some influence in the coming election due to the "purple" nature of the country.
I've said for a long time, I'd like to see 215 Republicans, 215 Democrats and 5 Libertarians (or other independents) in Congress. This would give the "real" power to those 5 LP members and would prevent the extrememist loons from either party from running rough-shod over the Constitution.
Interesting to note in the story, they quote a Libertarian monthly named "Reason."
What a good name for a magazine ... or even a talk show. :)
