    Question for Libertarians......Democrats or Republicans?

    I am a Libertarian but I am curious, which party do you think is worse between Democrats and Republicans? I know it's easy to say you hate both, blah blah blah but right now, in July, 2020, if you had to pick one or the other in November, which one would you support and why or why not?

    Right now. Easily Democrats.

    The "woke" leftist lunatics are driving moderates and "blue dog" democrats away towards Trump and the GOP. The GOP still tries to pretend that they're the party of conservatism, pro-liberty values, and upholding the constitution. The Dems don't even care.

    I’d say the Democrats are much worse regarding forcing their social agendas on me, trying to ostracize me when my personal beliefs do not all fit their platform, calling me racist because I don’t feel guilty for being born white, etc.

    So I believe that the Democratic Party is a bigger threat to my view of the American culture.

    Still cannot convince me to pull a straight ticket R though. I’ll be writing in Asteroid (NEO) 2018 VP1 for President. It is scheduled to orbit really close to Earth on Election Day.

    First off, I can't stand democrats/socialists/communists.

    But, if you want to be perfectly honest about it...

    It was Bush Senior who promised a "New World Order".

    It was Bush W who crammed Patriot Act and TSA (blue uniforms who don't even know/care what the Bill of Rights are - on MY tax dime) down our throats.

    Trump, the Real Estate magnate that he is, convinced republicans that the FED taking Private Property from rightful owners is for the "common good".

    Trump, the NY Lib that he is, vowed to never sign another bill again after he signed the largest Omnibus in the history of this nation.

    Trump, the NY Lib that he is, after signing that Omnibus, signed an "Emergency" spending bill that funded U.N. initiatives and African refugees.

    Trump, the NY Lib that he is signed the North American Union [USMCA] and now it is ratified and just went into effect July 1, 2020.

    Trump, the business man that he is, fully understands Fascism and how he can wash his hands of it, so awarded Moderna, an unknown private company over Half a Billion Tax Dollars, started up Operation Warp Speed and nominated Bill Gate's stooges Anthony Fauci and Moncef Slaoui (who both have direct ties to Bill Gates) to head this "crisis" disaster.

    And this list goes on and on and on.

    So, while I can't stand redistribution/welfare/high taxes, it is more than smack in the face obvious that every time a republican is president, the republicans let their guards down, and as a result I am LESS free and MORE in debt than when a democrat is on office. Democrats can't get away with ripping this country to shreds like republicans do.

    Perhaps if a democrat "wins" the presidency, the republicans will fight against what they are giving Trump and other republicans passes for.

    Lastly, TPTB see to it that their chosen one wins, whether D or R it does not matter to them, therefore I will not be participating in this circus election.

    If you don't count social issues, there's not a dime's worth of difference.

    And if you do, there might be a dime's worth.

    Major differences between parties used to be strong fed/strong states, central bank/no central bank, big international presence/small international presence.

    Both R & D are strong federal govt, pro central bank, and support big presence abroad.

    Depends on what you like and what is important to you if you like killing babies , no guns , communism , dirty immigrants and tax increases the Dems have a ticket for you some of which resembles current Libertarian Party leadership . If you like big govt , socialism and spending but get to keep some of yer guns then the establishment GOP has a ticket for you . I'll be voting Oyarde .

    Democrats are slightly worse. I would still have a hard time voting for Republicans though.

    There's very little difference between them. That said, if I *had* to choose, I'd choose the Dems. Why? Because there's still a small minority within the GOP who actually care about small government, but this faction has no chance of influencing the party until and unless the populist personality cult which is Trumpism is defeated. Any libertarians who look back fondly at c. 2008-2015, when we were actually making progress within the GOP, should appreciate my point. I might add, Trump also makes the Dems worse than they otherwise would be. If the GOP were less radical as to the culture war, so would the Dems be.

    The Democrats are so hungry for power they're willing to attempt a political and military coup to remove a sitting president from office whom they don't like. They are unwilling to assist in a peaceful transition of power.

    I'm no Republican, but given what they are willing to do to get power, how could you ever give them a vote of yours again for any office what-so-ever?

    always Democrats, literally the most racist party and they have a foothold on the black vote, ironic
