I've never understood the position of some libertarians who would rather vote for their own candidate, who has no chance at all, and allow the party farthest away from their philosophy to take power. I'm sure that's a lot of what has happened here in Washington.

Tipping point for a legislative coup d'etat? I'd say you in the State of WA(h!) have seen the tipping point.

When do the forces of legitimate government take the field against the usurpers?
