Libertarian Limerick

Tom Knapp has a great article up over at Free Market News touching on the coming dust-up at the LP Convention over platform reform, rewriting, infighting and the battle that’s dividing libertarians and concludes with his own one-sentence platform that works well in a soundbite:

The [insert name here] Party supports reducing the size, scope and power of government at all levels and on all issues, and opposes increasing the size, scope and power of government at any level, for any purpose.

Don’t know why he used the “insert name here” part, since only Libertarians could get away with saying this, but Tom asked for a limerick, so I’ll oblige:

There once was a third party of liberty,
Where infighting over “reform” was a duty.
They refused to engage in real politics,
But when they lost they claimed it “fixed.”
Will Libertarians ever find unity?
