He's saying that you stupid, arrogant, retarded FUCKS in the Libertarian Party are a bunch of fools and that you will not succeed at changing a lightbulb.

Or I am saying that.

Either way...

We've overcome the ballot access laws (which DID sap a lot of our resources).  We are the only third party with a consistent and enduring ability to run candidates in all fifty states.
Oh yea?
I didn't see a LP candidate on the ballot in NH in 2004.

The RLC infiltrators were too busy trying to re-elect Benson.

NHLP lameos  :x  They didn't even have mountain of paperwork and over 100k signatures to gather to get ballot access.   No, I don't care that the guy resigned.  There was no reason not to have a backup.  :x  :x  :x    I think the embarrassment of the whole situation and the new FSP LP members will make it unlikely that NH will drop the ball again. 

OK and NC are the only two states I know of where the state political machine has made ballot access near impossible.  And they call it a democratic republic my ass.  :x

You cannot win by "voting" for your favorite politician, no matter their affiliation.  It's all controlled.


Bless your hearts for trying, though.  You Libertarians are so passionate...I wish you could put some of that energy to good use.

This is a stupid question, but just because the republicans/ democrats in NH have libertarian ideas, it would still annoy me to have to vote for a republican/democrat because doesnt this just increase the number of seats republicrats has in (congress?) and makes the party as a whole look more popular than it is - where the general party stance as a whole is big govt(I'm not familiar with US politics).  Is there not an LP candidate onthe ballot in NH and if there was, would they actually get elected? Or do you still get the same stupid "who are you voting for? Republican or Democrat?" ideas. 
I guess its still early days, but surely an aim of the FSP in the future is to get an LP member elected instead of pushing the republicrat regimes.

Daffy Duck what an excellent choice.  But what about Alfred E. Newman?
