why the Libertarian Party Fails
Many in America’s freedom movement still hope that the Libertarian Party will one day become a power on the political scene to challenge the Democrat-Republican monolith. But in 42 years it hasn’t happened, and it probably won’t happen.
There are some very distinct reasons why the LP and all other alternative / independent parties fail. This essay will examine them.Let’s take, for example, the top independent parties out there: the Libertarian Party and the Constitution Party. Even though
each of them haveappeared at times to be a start toward genuine political reform, they repeatedly fail because they have structured themselves upon the mistake of instant idealism, which leads to their marginalization.
Rand Paul has suddenly become aware of facts that do not exist. “Immigrants are drawn to the magnet of free market capitalism here in the United States,” he wrote in an op-ed last week.However, over half of Hispanics are literally telling us that they reject “capitalism,” and the two largest immigrant groups Hispanics and Asians are voting overwhelmingly for the more anti-capitalist of the two major parties…..
Barabbas was the prisoner who was released by Pontius Pilate instead of Jesus. Pilate, who was the Roman governor presiding over the Judea, offered to release one Jewish prisoner in honor of Passover.
Presented with the choice, the crowds that had gathered chose Barabbas for release. And the crowds chose Jesus to be the one who would be put to death.
Barabbas is mentioned in all four Gospels during their descriptions of the trial of Jesus. In Luke 23:19, Barabbas is listed as being in prison for murder and for having started an insurrection in Jerusalem against the Roman government.

Thank you for your time and attention
First, please let me be very clear, what I have written here for your consideration is not about the Republican Party, Democrat Party, Independent Party, Libertarian Party, Tea Party or any other Party. It is about an idea conceived over two centuries ago, a country, a people, a document, our current president and his intensions for America.
The media’s caricature of libertarians is a pendulum that swings from one extreme to another. One minute we’re grasping plutocrats, championing the privileged, and the next minute we’re losers living in our parents’ basements.
