Why Libertarians Should Vote, and why it doesn’t violate principle

In the following video I dicuss why I don’t think voting violates libertarian principles or causes, if anything not voting undermines them. If anything, libertarians should vote if just to be counted. Politicians and public opinion are heavily controlled by numbers, and only by displaying our numbers and influence can we build the inertia and momentum to change public opinion. For example, do you think it wouldn’t raise eyebrows if the libertarian party got between 5-10% vote, sure it’s not a win but it sends a clear message to the two party system that their is a substantial portion of the population they must make a play for.
