Credibility. That is the key word in American politics and sometimes the Libertarian Party loses it when they prop up candidates like Vermin Supreme.
About 95% of Libertarians know it is a joke to have a candidate like Vermin Supreme running under the party banner and then there are the 5%. The problem is that most of those 5% go to state and national conventions and then take some holier than thou argument that the Libertarian Party should be embracing ideas and candidates like Supreme.
Just look at his ideas and platform:
Free ponies for all Americans! (you always wanted a pony, right?)
Mandatory tooth brush laws. “Strong teeth for a strong America”-Vermin Supreme
Supreme is the only candidate pledging to fund time travel research. Vermin has promised that as President, he will time travel and kill the infant-Hitler with his own bare hands. (you don’t want the Holocaust to happen, DO YOU?!?). I know I’m against Hitler’s legacy as it currently stands, support Supreme 2016 to abolish Hitler from history!https://www.facebook.com/pg/VerminSupreme/about/?ref=page_internal
If you think I am crazy wait until this article posts and watch the comments of support that will come from Libertarians.
Credibility is huge and yes, the other major parties have their loons as well, but I have never seen any of them wear a boot on their head and pledge free ponies for all of America.
The Libertarian Party is on the precipice of breaking a stigma that has been around for over 150 years, but they always stand in the way of themselves and we are then stuck with the tyrannical rule of the two major parties.
Time to abandon the wackos of the party and look to the future!
