Regardless of whether they will ever win an election or not!

I did not click the make votes public so no one will know how you voted here.
Your secret is safe....unless you wish to 'out' yourself as Democrat, Republican Etc with your comments of course.

Also, I've limited it to the five that had the mathmatical potential to put candidates before the voters in recent elections otherwise the list would be 50+ choices long.

Libertarian, no contest. However, since they are not exactly electable (yet) I fight for the Republicans (even though they have moved too far to the left for my tastes).

Libertarian Party Preamble:
As Libertarians, we seek a world of liberty; a world in which all individuals are sovereign over their own lives and no one is forced to sacrifice his or her values for the benefit of others. We believe that respect for individual rights is the essential precondition for a free and prosperous world, that force and fraud must be banished from human relationships, and that only through freedom can peace and prosperity be realized.

Consequently, we defend each person's right to engage in any activity that is peaceful and honest, and welcome the diversity that freedom brings. The world we seek to build is one where individuals are free to follow their own dreams in their own ways, without interference from government or any authoritarian power.

This is interesting the libertarians are getting 43% of the vote on CD even though I could use just my fingers to count their national support.

Constitution Party.

They stand for true conservative principles, unlike the pack of clowns we have running around the Republican Party (dubya, Palin, Jindal, Limbaugh, Coulter.... goes on)
