Libertarians don’t exist

But here’s the thing: those are all just facets of the same person.

I have yet to meet a single “libertarian” who votes anything other than straight-party Republican. Not once. They even do this neat trick where they claim “but I do vote for libertarians”, and point to a Republican who self-identifies Libertarian; but recursively that person always votes Republican.

This election cycle we at least got a few Republicans voting Libertarian as a protest, and a few who will loudly and proudly proclaim their support for ol’ stoned-what’s-his-name as proof of their bona fides, but for the most part … Libertarians don’t exist.
