I'm with you on this as a fellow ATS that believe we need libertarian ideals now more than ever because of rampant gov't corruption. No need to give a
corrupted entity more power and money. We need to Set corruption as issue #1, shrink govt , fix, and re implement and in that order.
The best I see coming from this election for a third party such as the libertarian party is Bernie Sanders. Even though he is the opposite of
shrinking gov't ,I think he would end up with a lame duck congress .
The good I see that Bernie could do for future third parties is continue his focus on issue number 1 which is corruption and conflict of interest in
A third party will never get a chance in the corrupted system we have today. We cant fix the corrupted system we have today until someone makes that
corruption issue 1 and brings it to the forefront.
Besides Bernie I don't see any of the other candidates focusing on corruption like him they are primarly focused on the symptoms of corruption such as
the mess with healthcare,economy,SS,medicaid,World Chaos , etc. .
Even though he will have a lame duck presidency I would expect him to continue with his vocal damnation of corruption in dc. Just bringing that to the
forefront in the MSM as the president is a very very very small step in the right direction , but a step in the right direction nonetheless
Hence as a Libertarian I would consider him
Cruz,Rubio,Hillary,Bush will just keep the same corrupted system going with no difference at all and definetely not bringing focus to issue number 1
which is corruption in DC.
Trump is just all over the place to take .01% sincere and has not focused on the real issue of corruption at the core but rather China and
