Of course the big opportunity for the Libertarian Party in Idaho is to
become the second party (replacing the Democrats). Because many
(most) Mormons feel that to vote for a Democrat is a sin, the Libertarian
Party has a real opportunity. Unfortunately, to get Libertarians united
in an organized fashion is like herding feral cats. Until the Party learns
how to organize and how to appeal to voters (avoiding Bob Barr foot
shooting), Idaho will remain a one party (with three factions) state.
The head of the Libertarian Party in Montana (Mike Fellows) speaks
Portuguese (as a child he was raised on some Portuguese speaking islands
in the Atlantic).
