Why I'm not an upper-case Libertarian
Researching how the primaries work here I came across the site for Texas' Libertarian Party and read their platform. It nicely illustrates why I don't want the LP to win any elections even when I vote for them.

Excerpt:

I agree, self-defense is good, that's what the 2nd Amendment is for.

and retaliatory force to rectify a completed act of aggression by securing just compensation from the aggressor.

But legalizing plundering expeditions against anyone you think harmed you would put society on the fast track to feudalism.

Sigh. It's be nice to vote for someone instead just against.
