    Do you think the Libertarian and Conservative movements will split the Republican vote next...

    election cycle? Do you think the two schools disagree?

    That is an interesting question - like your others - I would say yes, since the recent vote was such a fiasco.  There is not enough leadership that is bold enough to unite the various streams of thought, nor bold enough to quit trying to appeal to the perceived masses.

    I think a focus on strong principles, in a dynamic leader, with 1/2 a billion Obama-style, might do the trick...  wink

    It is very possible that they could split the vote.  However, it is also very possible that the Libertarian movement could sway many democrats and split their vote as well.   It totally depends upon three things -- (1) financial resources of the Libertarian party, (2) whether the American people actually listen, (3) how strong the candidate is from the Libertarian party.
    As a former democrat, I found the Libertarian party to have a much more appealing platform than either of our "mainstream" two parties.   Our government was designed to run effectively in a two party system.  The last election has seven (or more) parties involved.   It will be interesting to see the dynamics of the coming elections and the trends it creates.  Could we lose our current mainstream two parties?  I  think that is a very viable situation.
    Regardless, it would be really nice if the government got back to the business of running our government.....

    Possible, but doubtful.  Even when there is a high profile third party candidate they hardly ever win.  The best way for a third party to win is to work within the parameters of the established parties, like the tea party has done this election cycle.
