Libertarian blog comes out against "Top Two" voting

A Libertarian Party blog post came out against a "Top-Two" primary ballot initiative in Florida.
The plan would move the top two vote-getters in what is effectively an open primary to the general election.  No matter what party the top two candidates belong to, they will advance to the general election and would be the only two candidates on the General Election ballot.
The blog post says the practice, "severely damages the chances for alternative parties and independents to participate in the general election, except where seats are uncontested."
Currently, California and Washington have "Top Two" elections.
