Well, it's not that black and white Richard. Many in the tea party and libertarian leaning. I was in Virginia last month and met with some tea partiers that were all Ron Paul supporters and such. The tea party is a grassroots movement that has many different beliefs. They all tend to agree on less spending, lower taxes, free markets and constitutional government. 

If libertarians who leaned more democrat joined the Democratic Party, it would therefore become more libertarian. If libertarians who lean more republican, joined up with the Republican Party, the Republican Party would be more libertarian. Doing it through a third party actually does less for libertarianism as a whole. I don't like the two-party system at all either, but it's not going anywhere, and we can influence them to be more libertarian if more libertarians get involved.

The Tea Party are a bunch of hypocrites who've been taken over by conservatives who don't value liberty and are nothing more than pissed off conservatives with socially conservative values they think can be imposed on others. Libertarians get plenty of respect, we are under a UNIVERSAL media blackout by the media because THE government FEARS US. That's a type of respect; they know most people would vote Libertarian if the truth came out about Libertarian values and those of the Big 2 parties and the truth on the issues and thanks to the internet we are waking people up, albeit slowly.

How else can you eliminate the problems in county, state and federal elections?  The libertarians do not get the respect they should, so should they try to affiliate with a party to gain support like the tea party.
