It's not worth dying over. It's just an election.

Both major parties are oligarchic -- just different factions in the oligarchy or the ruling class. See Roderick Long's analysis of this here:


The two major parties today are extremely far from libertarian. We'd have to go back a century to find when one party was fairly close -- and that would've been the Democrats NOT the GOP. With the exception of its stance on slavery (a big exception, yes), the GOP has always been (and remains even now despite its rhetoric) a party of big, intrusive central government.
