You obviously have no clue as to what Libertarians value. How can they secretly want control when they continually ask for smaller government? They
want to legalize drugs (again another control scheme implemented by the current dominant parties). Bring troops home (can't control the world if no
one is deployed). Repeal the Patriot Act and NDAA (Obvious tools used to circumvent the Constitution). They value state's rights (stripping control
from the federal government).
Also Ron Paul was a Republican, not a Libertarian. Gary Johnson was the Libertarian candidate. Ron Paul just happened to side with many Libertarian
ideals so it made him popular with the Libertarian party. We are also growing, Gary Johnson took in 1% of the vote, the most any Libertarian candidate
has gotten yet. While not at the needed 5% for federal funding, it is notable that more and more people are becoming disillusioned with the two
corrupt parties that currently run the country.
Please leave the Libertarian party out of the usual mud slinging and slander that the Republican and Democrat parties like to engage in. We don't
even get enough support to appear on tv to even attempt to do any of that.
