And start thinking about how you're going to reclaim your rightful place in the conservative coalition.
Step one, find a party that's actually conservative to make a coalition with. If not possible (as neither major party is conservative or believes in classical liberalism), work locally to convince others the wisdom of voting for a third party. It's nice to see, I suppose, the Libertarian party offer a Presidential candidate but when the establishment media (including Fox) doesn't report on it, it's sort of a moot point. Step two, vote in the elections that are of importance to you (local elections), leave the other ones blank. Who cares who wins the national elections right now? Neither one of the parties will limit government.

Wrong. We should keep the Marxists/socialists/liberals out of office. If we want smaller government, our first job is to elect people who will appoint constitutionalists to the bench. We must remove the liberal activist judges who make it possible for the liberals to advance their evil unconstitutional causes. Libertarian leaning voters should vote to keep or expand the current majority in congress to block the liberals. The president is doing a superb job with his judicial nominations and despite the obstructionist attempts by the liberal minority, we are getting most of them through the senate. It would be a horrible mistake to put these obstructionists in total control.
Yep. Libertarians need to build from the ground up. When they start eating up 5-20% of the seats in state legislatures, people will start paying attention!
