What, more than anything, do you feel is keeping the Libertarian Party from breaking into politics on the national level?

Money. The current campaign-funding structure basically precludes ANY third party from being able to compete with the "big guns". I find it embittering and frustrating that our "democracy" is more focused on lobbyists and corporate kickbacks than what is actually good for our country or true to our founding ideals.

Are you a member of the Libertarian Party?

Yes.

Introduction

I am a project manager for a large IT company, and recently relocated to the area. While I have always been "libertarian leaning", I became a supporter of Gary Johnson and a member of the Libertarian party after the last Presidential election.
