Yes you are right about that, I was looking at it solely from the Libertarian perspective but yea they do seem to throw that "tea party" label around pretty loosely.  Maybe it has to do more with being Oklahoman than being tea party. {#Wink}

It's not a question of pandering, but of asking the question, if our movement mostly attracts financially secure white males, maybe our beliefs and princicples aren't all that universally appealing? Or perhaps are presented in a manner which includes implicit messages that exclude various other groups?

I appreciate your concern for our ability to market our ideas, really I do. I'm touched.

We argue endlessly about the most effective way to present our ideas, but the ideas themselves aren't on the table. If they aren't accepted then we haven't necessarily failed. The ideas are more important than power; perhaps they can inspire some wiser future.

But no party really 'hates America'. They may dislike the methods others use to craft their vision of it, but I don't buy that anyone 'wants to destroy the country'.  Even the most diehard in the libertarian camp want some government (some one has to mind the borders while we nap). 

As you point out, they are all pandering to a target audience. The two established parties have such a lock on the system that even people who are widely recognized as outsiders feel like it is more effective to try and co-opt a party from inside than to try and strike out on their own. 

I think a large part of this problem is a fear of the other. So most people feel comfortable with a party they are unhappy with because they are afraid of the other party getting control. But what confuses me is that we have repeatedly shown that we can have changes of control and still effectively be a very powerful (and diverse) nation. We have our issues, but so does everyone else. Obama did not bring about the end times, Bush 2 didn't destroy all our credibility, Clinton didn't cause us to devolve into a nation of hedonists, Bush 1 didn't let the CIA loose inside the borders... It's not the end if the other side wins. It won't be the end if a 3rd party makes it either - just ask the Whigs... 

Back to the topic:  The libertarians are going to evolve. So are the dems and republicans. The real question is how do they pick up enough market share (steal enough attention from the target audience inside the other parties) to gain relevance. Yes - they do need to gain relevance eventually (probably soon). 1% showings are not going to sustain a movement.

Influence doesn't necessarily mean winning elections. It can mean causing someone else to lose one.

A few percentage points can be all the difference it takes. The unprincipled power-hungry demagogs nearest to your position will want to co-opt that few per cent and may throw your movement a few platform bones to get it. This, for instance, is the 1896 Socialist Labor Party Platform. There are 21 planks ("demands") in it, they got about half of them enacted into law. But they never won any national elections. They held a few positions as mayors and such, but their influence as spoilers was enough to get the Progressive movement (first in the Republican party, led by Teddy Roosevelt, then among the Democrats) to adopt their positions.

In the 2012 Montana senate election a Libertarian took 6.5% of the vote, and neither incumbent party candidate won a majority. That 6.5% was more than the margin of victory. That stung the losing side (Republican) badly enough that they first tried to lash out against third parties, and when that failed they have since taken a more-conciliatory tone. They may have to lose a few more close elections before the lesson sinks in, but they are in the business of winning elections. If they won't take an opportunity their competitors will.

Look at how Obama co-opted the Green movement. He was able to prevent a significant leftish third party challenge in both his elections; ask Al Gore if that matters.

What are your goals? Do you want your ideas to win, or your candidates? I'll take the ideas any time.

Your apparent discomfort with the idea that libertarians should seek to have a broad cross section of the populace represented in their ranks is puzzling. After all, if the L party (or the l party) is the party of ideas, these ideas would presumably have appeal that was independent of sexual orientation, skin color, etc. So you would expect the demographics of libertarianism to generally reflect the demographics of the US if the movement truly does welcome all who embrace its ideals.

Don't confuse what you thought about any particular libertarian with...well, anything, really.

There is no theory to the idea of a Big Tent, that's a concept of political tactics, not philosophy. It means accepting minor differences from doctrine in order to swell the ranks. Minor being the key word, and for the incumbent parties a somewhat meaningless one.

I get tired of this rather juvenile "why do you hate America" twist to these arguments, but since I seem to have failed to get this point across I'll try again, more directly.

I can't control who is attracted to libertarian ideas, and I can't change them to attract any particular demographic. They aren't crafted to appeal to any particular race or gender, they are crafted to appeal to people who want more liberty. If a diverse crowd shows up, fine—but that's not the point. If it becomes the point then we've lost focus on what we care about.

As I pointed out earlier, other movements have pandered (sadly rather effectively) to target audiences. I don't want to change the ideas to match the minds in the audience, I want to change the minds in the audience to match the ideas. This takes time. The idea of liberty has been described in large part by its enemies, and we need to overcome that impression before we can make our own. We're playing catch-up.

But when we finally do get people's attention what are we going to tell them? "Vote for us, we'll favor your demographic" when really we want an end to demographic favoritism altogether? If we pander then our opposition to pandering means nothing.
