The 2020 election cycle is proving to be one of the best in American history. A third party is in a position to be the most important factor in determining the political future of this country. The Libertarian Party is on the cusp of making itself a dynamic political alternative but they keep sticking themselves in the foot and it starts with the current leadership.
This weekend Vermin Supreme was given the spotlight at the New Hampshire convention. He was the winner of the presidential preference poll of delegates and state party members. Then tonight national party chair Nick Sarwark took to Facebook to give some holier than thou argument about the bylaws of the party and its inclusiveness.
The fact that the national party would even give Supreme a platform to speak on shows the ignorance they have towards actually being considered a force in national politics. It has nothing to do with principles but rather their inability to be taken seriously. There are many Libertarians out there but stay far away from the party because if charades like the one in New Hampshire.
The party leadership is responsible for this and it is their job to attract people to join and not scare them away with the crazy.
The only chance of success for the Libertarian Party is new leadership across the board from chairman down. They are the most powerful Libertarians in the country currently. They hold the highest governing offices as Libertarians and need to focus on bigger things.
