      I've known quite a few libertarians (I'm a computer programmer), and all of them have regarded the Democratic Party to be made up of thieves and fools.

        than people who vote Libertarian.  Real Libertarians (the ones who read Reason, go to Libertarian Party meetings, and so on) are obnoxious ideological twerps.  They often remind me of people who belonged to fringe leftist parties in the sixties (ankle high pants, white socks and bad haircuts--i.e., computer programmers).  Fortunately, there are not many of them.

        Yet, there are hundreds of thousands of Libertarian voters.  I'm going to propose that many of them are single-issue voters, with that issue being predominantly pro-pot legalization.
