Propaganda?

From this LP article:
As the GOP actively sheds its conservative base, hitting stagnation in support, the Libertarian Party continues to grow each day as "dislodged voters" are turning to the LP as the only viable party that will stand by principle for the benefit of the American people....'More and more citizens are looking to us, the Libertarian Party, to break the two-party system and lead this nation to peace and prosperity,' stated Shane Cory, chief of staff for the Libertarian Party.
Okay, Michael Chertoff during the Conventoin Center fiasco. Sure, the LP is growing...by a couple people a month. Nothing against the LP--indeed, I hope their membership skyrockets. But I think the picture they're trying to paint here is a little rosier than the way things really are.

I agree, in fact, I have come to feel that the LP has stagnated into a limp-wristed party of non-revolutionary ideals. The LP is nothing if not revolutionary. The platform of the LP is, by any stretch of the imagination, revolutionary to anyone who has grown accustom to the status quo of the current political mendacity that plagues this nation. It will, in my estimation, take much more than a political party to dislodge this growing police state behemoth. The fact is that the players of power are too entrenched into the system to allow a group like the LP to expel them from their perches through political means. The system will only allow meager advances to the LP in elections, but it will always prevent any claim to real governing power to those who espouse the positions of the LP.
The foes that we face are far greater than the Republican or Democratic parties, which are just two sides of the same counterfeit coin. Those that pull the strings of this country's political parties will not relinquish power willingly.
