and further providing a reason to cancel your membership.

if CATO tells the NYT's that we can be pandered to, then they still don't get it.

“They’re a swing vote right now,” said David Boaz, executive vice president of the Cato Institute, a libertarian research organization in Washington. “People with broadly libertarian views typically vote two-thirds to three-quarters Republican. But in 2004 and 2006, libertarian votes were moving away from the Republican Party. So they seem like they’re up for grabs.”

It seems to be that CATO is talking about libertarianism as a whole. And in a way, we are a swing vote. Even people on here have told us to vote, at the very least: Democratic, Constitutionalist, Libertarian, and Republican.

And being pandered to is probably much more of a good thing than a bad thing. It could mean we are being recognized as building a significant Ron Paul voting bloc. It means we can play a bigger role in setting policy. It means we are not insignificant.

I'm a swing voter. I might vote Libertarian or I might vote Constitution.

As the Washington State G.O.P. found out when they tried to fool our people into thinking we didn't have a quorum without them, we're something more than your average group of swing voters. Mainly, we've come out swinging!
