Failure of public schools to instill an understanding and appreciation of how and why the Unites States came to be. The product of these schools for the past several generations have subsequently formed our society, which by and large does not care. This makes it easy for those who would "fundamentally change" our nation to do so with little opposition. Coupled with the complicity of a corrupt, morally bankrupt media, it is a long uphill fight to gain a platform for a long enough time to make a valid point. I fear that the only scenario in which the Libertarian Party will be acknowledged is AFTER the current leaders have brought our country to the ruinous point where these three generations of lost souls are hurting enough to seek alternatives that are currently foreign to them. Hopefully, when that happens, there will be enough faith and ambition left among the wise to start over. THEN, to the shame of general populace, the Libertarian Party will have the chance they deserve.
Not yet. What do I need to do?
