Granted, and I do agree, however, I'd much rather we all stop this partisan hackery and just work together.

It's stuff like this that is the reason George Washington didn't want to be a part of this "party system". It only serves to divide rather than unite.

If this is libertarianism, you can keep it. Because I rather disagree with the assertion that women having the vote has helped to send our nation into a downward spiral:

Who is a moderate like me suppose to vote for?
The Democrats are the moderate party these days. Maybe you didn't notice that most Americans have been voting for them. They represent mainstream America. If they didn't, they wouldn't be winning elections. It's really simple if you look at it that way.

Out here in CO, the birthplace of the Libertarian Party, they are opposed to public schools. Not my "type".

I've been reading about the Modern Whig Party and it sounds kind of interesting. I'm going to learn more about it.
