"Purity" vs principles

Richard Combs has a must read post for all libertarians, particularly for those in the Libertarian Party. The purists, and I probably used to be one, are doing long term harm to the LP by insisting on a platform that lays out the utopian viewpoint. It's been said by more than a few people that "utopia is not an option", but the party has yet to figure out how to express that without giving the appearance of selling out. There is a Reform the LP caucus, of which I'm a member. We'll see if they can move the LP in the right direction.
