Alas, LP, we hardly knew ye (part 2)

Classically Liberal: Libertarian Party 1972 – 2008: Rest in Peace.

It is with a heavy heart that I report the death of the Libertarian Party. It was only 36 years old — far too young to die. And while there is some dispute over whether the death was self-inflicted or murder, the death itself was tragic and sad.

Once billed as “The Party of Principle” those principles were sold down the river. On Sunday, May 25, 2008 the principles were abandoned, and the party was last seen gasping for air
before expiring.

In a campaign that has seen Americans agonizing over the “lesser” evil, the LP said to hell with it and went for the greater evil.

Soma, anyone?
