It just occurred to me

Here in the great State of Texas, I can vote a straight Libertarian ticket if I so desire.  What I cannot do is vote in a Libertarian primary--only Republican or Democrat.

Which brings up the obvious question: How do the Libertarians select their general election candidates?  Compare pelts?  An Ayn Rand quote-off?  See who scores closer in Six Degrees of Separation from Tam?

Assuming this is a serious question, the answer is, they don't do it by spending tax dollars on an election.

has a story about the selection, light on substance, though. Basically, it starts at the local level selecting delegates for the state convention, where the candidates are selected.

Who's louder when they scream "R0n PAuL!!!!11!!! ARRRRGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!"

Actually, I think that's how it's done.

Cage match.

(I used to be a card-carrying member of the LP and I don't really know how they do it either.)
