Just to Forewarn You...

I'm on the fence right now.

I'm not sure if I want to stay with the Republican Party or become a member of the Big L's...the Libertarian Party, and just support those candidates who appeal to me (who will most likely, admittedly, be Republicans for the time being).

I just feel like the idea of an indefinitely large, socialist federal government has become the Democratic Party's pure mantra...and that the leadership of the Republican Party has capitulated in it's attempts to fight this.

Sure, there are plenty of very solid small-government, lower-taxes types (Rep. Thad McCotter of Michigan is a very good example), but I've always believed as Reagan believed that libertarian principles are at the heart of conservative principles.

Someone want to provide me with a little perspective? I'm going to be going over the party stances between the two in detail over the next few days, and mulling over who stands for what I stand for.
