I would rather that Browne and the LP get some major backing from some of these
alleged silicon valley libertarians, before I invest my vote in a candidate that
is too high a risk for me. If the LP got $40 million tomorrow to spend on the
campaign, then I'd be all for it, because they could finally start to compete in
the media. Asking me to vote LP is like asking street people to invest in Rotary
Rocket. Elections are won by money, face the facts. Until the LP gets some
significant backing it is a non-starter.
