    Can we get a fiscally conservative and socially liberal party in here?

    Strong military
    Gay Marriage
    Legalize weed
    Small government
    Pro Abortion
    Secure borders
    ...

    Then there is a party for them already. The Democrat party. This party could be effective if it had about 6-7 Senators and 30-50 House members.

    Then they need to do much, much better at reaching out and getting their message out there. They are perceived as far right wing nut jobs.

    This. However, I am 100% against partial-birth abortion.

    The Libertarian movement in and of itself is compelling. However, most of the libertarians that I've met personally are just conservatives that happen to prescribe Libertarian ideals to the two or three things that are important to them.

    For instance, how can you be liberatarian and against abortion? Makes no ****ing sense to me.

    It's ironic this is coming from Herman Cain. Because I'd say the first and foremost thing the republican party needs to do is to rid itself of the clowns that try to pass themselves off as serious players. Such as Donald Trump and Herman Cain.

    The only real option: Social Democracy.

    Northern European countries are oft the happiest places in the world to live, even though it's colder than Trout's heart.

    Yeah, I know.. "Go home Roach, you're a socialist!" Give it a chance though. There's something to it. https://www.commondreams.org/further/2009/05/11-4

    This has basically been Ron Paul's platform for 30 years. The only thing he's changed his mind on in that span, is abortion. The libertarian model was created by Ron Paul's ideals anyway.
    People whine and complain about getting this type of candidate a shot, but when it comes down to policing the world.... you all end up saying forget it.

    This is my exact stance. I should have added the partial birth part, my bad.

    In the case of partial birth abortions the one they just killed. I wont get into when a fetus is a person but once you partially deliver a child then kill it that is beyond to far. I see that as no different than murder.
