I agree the cake baking thing is kind of a minor issue - in principle is a pretty important issue but he doesn't want to make things worse, he is just going with the status quo of businesses serving people without discriminating based on race, religion, sexual orientation, etc.. I agree with GJ it is currently a "black hole" issue that would likely lose the election for a candidate.

The two big issues are his stances on the TPP and also that Hillary is innocent or whatever.. oh, and I don't think he is very good on immigration considering that it is currently a highly subsidized government program.

But he is very libertarian on about 90% of the issues. I will still probably vote for him. I would rather have a libertarian who is a little bit of a globalist than an authoritarian leaning nationalist.. although I think we may be better off with Trump than Hillary, I'm not 100% certain on that, but there is good reason to think he would be.

Nationalism may be preferable to socialism, nationalism is a reaction to all of the forced and subsidized multi-culturalism that is having a lot of negative impacts on western society. But nationalism is not optimal, it's not a solution, more like self defense.

I like these 2 sites... nice how they show the flaws of each candidate and lead into a better choice.... Johnson might not be a perfect Libertarian, and might not be better than Dr Paul, but he is the best shot we got at changes we want. Finally.

And if enough people out there hate both Hitlary and Trumphoon (and there are a BUNCH who hate BOTH) we might actually stand a chance of winning. (Yes, got to poll a little higher and got to get into the debates. No debates, no chance.) But we can't be internally divided over cake baking and stupid stuff like that.

Need to share these sites....

You're patently wrong about that. And it's a reckless assessment in scope.

While I agree with you that the issues you've provided for comparison are critical, they are not beyond the critical scope of the former. Not today. Not tomorrow. Not any day.

So it is much better to say "He is not good enough. So we will continue to bitch and moan and let Hitlary or Trumphoon get elected because Gary is just not pure enough." SMFH

Here in lies the idiocy of most libertarians. It has got to be 100% pure, or we will pout.

Here is a better idea, let's get a quasi-libertarian elected this time, so next time, a more pure libertarian has a fucking chance after America has warmed up to the idea a little....

I'm not talking about elections. I'm talking about the fundamental principle of American philosophy. Specifically, the foundation of its moral code. To minimize the terms of controversy to "bake my cake" and proceed to push that issue aside is to ignore the relevance of the primary fundamental principle of Individual Liberty itself.

The issues that the op placed into comparison with it in order to minimize it are essentially nothing more than products of ignorance to it.

It is unfortunately a process to convert most Americans to what we recognize. And while Johnson is not perfect, he is a good stepping stone. It is either that, or still continuing to complain. I liked McAfee better, but Johnson is a good bridge and has a better chance to make a change in our direction. So I agree with the OP. who cares about baking a cake. It is one issue that some of us see as a flaw, but if he can win the hearts of millions to advance the overall goal, I am willing to run with it.

Yeah, like I said, I'm not reserving focus on the election cycle. And my interest in the thread was specific to what was minimized. I think the best course, in scope, is to go back to nuts and bolts and get on the same page there. The election can't and won't drive practical terms of controversy now. The only fruit it's providing is divide and conquer. Look around.

So, then, principle and philosophy. That's where I'm at. And likely where I'll focus most of my energy if I salvage the patience to remain around here.

But to minimize the particular issue that was brought into question is a big deal. That's the big one. Again, it's the primary fundamental principle. That's a no no of the highest law.

'American philosophy'.... gtfo. A philosophy is either true or it is not. And for the fundamental moral principle of your philosophy being God, every single one of your 'quotes that support the principle' was a quote from a fallible individual. Quit puffin your chest, boy.

I agree, and disagree. I think the election cycle can give a lot of exposure and bring in a lot of new eyeballs. So both are important. And I am willing to bypass some principle to win eyeballs to bring more people over, and then sharpen principle. Because the principle first approach has been tried since 1971, and here we sit...

Except it doesn't matter what you think if you can't support your claim with anything other than your ego. And our egos tend to get us into trouble. That's the problem. We have entirely too many cowboys around here. People who dont think things through all the way before popping their mouths off. It's very wise to think things through. It's practical to consider the position one places themselves in prior to placing themselves there. Reason being is that the red face that one saves may be their own.

What is this thread about? Seems to me it's about an election where the two evils we're expected to choose between are just about the two most evil bastards who have ever run for the office, and about a couple of sites and videos which point that out.

Can we allow this thread to be about that? Or are we really going to compare things like Benghazi, and things like attacking the First Amendment by not only threatening to sue journalists for slander but threatening to target people on the basis of their religion, to whether a professional baker can refuse this or that or whether Johnson is willing to rule out any possibility of stopping a genocide somewhere?

And if so, why do we have to do it in this thread?

So, we have too many cowboys who are unwilling to think things through before popping off? Like as in, unwilling to think about where the proper thread for the thing they want to pop off about might be? Like that kind of cowboy, pardner?

Are the people who might actually choose the lesser evil if the choice is Satan, Be'ezelbub, or some guy who drank a juice box in the grocery store then hid the empty behind a cantaloupe allowed to have an activist thread around here any more? That's not a rhetorical question. You certainly may answer.

The issue was raised in the thread with regard to the bake my cake debate. The op responded to the insertion by claiming it to be a non-issue. It is patently false to profess it to be a non-issue. The issue is one that contradicts the primary fundamental principle of Individual Liberty itelf. And that is what I took issue with. So, I responded appropriately, correctly, and respectfully.

Unfortunately, P3ter_Griffin decided to pick a battle that I promise he is absolutely not prepared to finish. That was a choice on his part.

Does that answer your question?

To the latter point, I agree with you. So, then, if P3ter_Griffin would enjoy making his claim in the specific thread with which he took issue, I'll certainly accommodate him.

Individuals will be less likely to do grassroots efforts when the grassroots efforts they do do and talk about get trashed, whether we agree or not with the efficacy of the specific grassroots efforts they have undertaken, ones they may undertake in the future we may agree with. It is subjective, but imo in the grassroots if you disagree so much with the efficacy of a project someone has undertaken, and are not offering constructive criticism to their project, then don't say anything. Plenty of room for debates in other sections of RPF.

eta: I am leaving this thread. My apologies to the OP. I already sent him a +rep before all this, because his websites are nice... much better than I can do.

Well. Respectfully, I didn't forward any disagreement with his project. In fact, I didn't even mention it. As I said, it was just that one thing that popped out there that caught my interest.

Beyond that, I'm fairly confident that speciallyblend won't be putting the brakes on any projects over little squabbles like this. It happens. Is what it is.

He didn't say it was a non-issue. He said it doesn't hold a candle to a great many other issues facing this nation and the world today. And I agree with him.

You said your piece. You consider a baker open to the public being forced to served anyone who comes in his business with money to be as big an issue as Benghazi, state secrets on home servers, the elimination of the First Amendment through people targeted for their religion and reporters getting sued by the politicians they're supposed to cover, influence buying and selling, endless inflation and endless wars.

Well, you know, in a Republic you have to balance a businessman's right to refuse service to anyone against a minority's right to be reprehensible, so long as they don't harm anyone in the process. So, it's more of a gray area than you and William Tell make it seem. Not that I disagree with either of you on the subject. I don't. I just see a gray area in it you don't.

It isn't the particle of Johnson's personality that convinces me he's as evil as Clinton and Trump. I haven't found that yet. I think Johnson's good enough that they'd shoot him if he won, and make do with Weld.

Any way you slice it, this two party duopoly is a far greater threat to our liberty than Johnson's desire to make bakers bake, IMO. And if Johnson can kiss enough progressive and sane GOP ass to break it...

Okay. Start a thread on this. Seriously. Move it out of here and I'll discuss my thoughts on it with you.

I don't really want to derail the op too much either. But this is an important topic in terms of being on the same page with the principles that define, as you mention, our Republic. Specifically this gray area you mention.

To be clear, though, I don't really care about Johnson. I'm talking about the other stuff.

Include Gary Johnson in national Presidential polls

https://www.change.org/p/cnn-include-gary-johnson-in-national-presidential-polls

The Commission on Presidential Debates determines whether or not a candidate can be included in the debates based on their performance in five selected national polls. In order to be included in the debates, a candidate must be polling at 15% nationwide. We, the undersigned, believe that Governor Gary Johnson, the Libertarian nominee for President has a chance to reach that threshold. A recent Fox News poll found Gov. Johnson to have 12% support nationwide and his mainstream media exposure in recent weeks has been unprecedented for a Libertarian Presidential candidate, which means that his support has likely grown.

I agree the cake baking thing is kind of a minor issue - in principle is a pretty important issue but he doesn't want to make things worse, he is just going with the status quo of businesses serving people without discriminating based on race, religion, sexual orientation, etc.. I agree with GJ it is currently a "black hole" issue that would likely lose the election for a candidate.

The two big issues are his stances on the TPP and also that Hillary is innocent or whatever.. oh, and I don't think he is very good on immigration considering that it is currently a highly subsidized government program.

But he is very libertarian on about 90% of the issues. I will still probably vote for him. I would rather have a libertarian who is a little bit of a globalist than an authoritarian leaning nationalist.. although I think we may be better off with Trump than Hillary, I'm not 100% certain on that, but there is good reason to think he would be.

Nationalism may be preferable to socialism, nationalism is a reaction to all of the forced and subsidized multi-culturalism that is having a lot of negative impacts on western society. But nationalism is not optimal, it's not a solution, more like self defense.

In other words, you think the full force of government should be brought to bear on business owners who have closely held religious principles. You think government should have some war, control some guns, and make the TPP. Those don't sound to me like 90% libertarian. It sounds 100% social liberal and 100% big government.

This is a point I have tried to make here for years. A libertarian is committed to limited government and personal responsibility. He cannot bring the full force of government on anything that is not in its specific enumerated powers.

No, I don't think any of those things.. in principle you are right.. but there are a lot of other issues that he is libertarian on like taxes and spending, free market economics, drug policy and foreign policy.

Like I said, he doesn't want to make the cake baker situation worse, he is for the status quo, but he could improve things greatly in these other areas. We will at least live to fight another day, and then we can go free the cake bakers.

The TPP he is ok with if it frees up trade, but he is skeptical of these trade deals. I would be ok with it too if it freed up trade, but I am a lot more skeptical about these trade deals than he is, I know they would throw in bad stuff at the end that nobody had time to read before trying to pass it - but it is less likely they would throw those things in if Gary Johnson had to sign it.

We don't have to imagine it. The press was brutal, with the NY Post stating (http://nypost.com/2016/05/29/meet-this-years-crop-of-crazy-libertarian-party-hopefuls/), "Computer-security pioneer John McAfee notoriously went on the lam in 2012 to escape police questioning after the murder of a neighbor in Belize. The heavily armed sometime alleged drug dealer [...]"; Slate saying "McAfee—who fled his own Central American residential compound while under suspicion by the Belizean government for the murder of his neighbor; who openly admits that said compound featured a harem of teenage Belizean sex workers"; and the National Review stating (http://www.nationalreview.com/article/436011/libertarians-convention-florida-crazy-fun-unserious), "McAfee is introduced by “Starchild,” an “erotic service provider” from California who is currently wearing a leopard-print leotard and carrying a matching umbrella. The Libertarian party is a reminder that no one truly grows out of Dungeons and Dragons." Few in the media took McAfee seriously. Johnson, on the other hand, is scoring major media interviews and appearances.

John McAfee should be in prison. His company MGT is one of the more blatant stock frauds I have ever seen. He is basically a small scale Madoff trying to feverish turn this "company" into something legit. It is all smoke and mirrors. There is more than enough evidence right now for the SEC to take him down. Government incompetence is best thing going for McAfee right now. I could write 10 pages on all of the lies, misrepresentations, and shady people surrounding him and this company.

Sure, when the choice is Asshole A or Liar B only. But voting for a pretty good, but not perfect C actually will help take a step closer to an ideal candidate in the future as if C gets elected or gets enough exposure to wake up more people to our ideas. It is a step in the right direction, instead of demanding a higher level of purity and still going no where.

If he gets 15% or more in the polls, he will get in the debates. He is not blowing it interviews currently. He is not "slick" and "polished" but is quirky and real... and might come across a little funky, and might not saying the right things all the time... but he is not "blowing it." Have you seen Hitlary and Trumphoon? And seen what comes out of their pie holes? He can be unpolished against that and still have a good shot.

Have you signed the petition to get him into the polls, to therefore get him into the debates, or is saying NotA is your vote more comforting as he isn't "pure enough"? https://www.change.org/p/cnn-include-gary-johnson-in-national-presidential-polls The petition signers have doubled in the last 20 hours. It is picking up steam.

We have an unprecedented opportunity with the disdain for Hitlary and Trumphoon to expose the world to LP ideas, even if just quasi libertarian. Even if it is LINO (Libertarian In Name Only) it will get people more comfortable with the ideas and name... But it is better to just complain that he isn't good enough, right? Pour a glass of wine and complain about how bad things are... And then 2016 will be just like 1971 and we can remain hidden in our corner, bitching and moaning to the wall. SMFH

Include Gary Johnson in national Presidential polls

https://www.change.org/p/cnn-include-gary-johnson-in-national-presidential-polls

The Commission on Presidential Debates determines whether or not a candidate can be included in the debates based on their performance in five selected national polls. In order to be included in the debates, a candidate must be polling at 15% nationwide. We, the undersigned, believe that Governor Gary Johnson, the Libertarian nominee for President has a chance to reach that threshold. A recent Fox News poll found Gov. Johnson to have 12% support nationwide and his mainstream media exposure in recent weeks has been unprecedented for a Libertarian Presidential candidate, which means that his support has likely grown. Paired with the fact that polls have consistently shown Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton to be among the most polarizing candidates in history, we believe that there is a real opportunity this year for a third-party candidate to make a difference. With the Libertarian Party being the only third party likely to appear on the ballot in all fifty states and the political experience of both Gov.

I'll stay out of your thread but I want to respond to this. Gary Jonhnson holds a position that is contrary to the primary fundamental principle of Individual Liberty. To promote Johnson in the name of Liberty is essentially bastardizing its fundamental principles.

Some people around here may endorse that kind of activism. I don't. And I'll actively oppose it whether it be here or any place else. And I couldn't care less what you or or anyone else thinks about it. You don't get the luxury of promoting someone in the name of Individual Liberty whose positions are contrary to it's primary fundamental principle just because you say you do. You don't. Not today. Not tomorrow. Not any day. The only way you'll continue to do so here without opposition is if people like me get banned for speaking in the name of the primary fundamental principle of Individual Liberty. So, I'm telling you this respectfully. My intention is not to further stimulate the antagonistic position that you've taken. I'm simply telling you that you won't get a free pass to pass off a candidate in the name of Individual Liberty whose position is contrary to its most fundamental principles.

So we can sit and bitch and moan for another decade or 2... Johnson is not perfect. Far from it. But it is the best step we have in the right direction to reach the masses. If we can wake the masses to voting for a Libertarian, we can move more towards our principles. But "not pure enough NOW, so I will pout and tell anyone who is promoting him that he is bad" is a grand plan... It will really help advance Liberty. LOL I would like Johnson to be better on some issues too. But I want Johnson to actually win and help make libertarianism a household name and then slowly get more pure libertarians in offices locally and nationally off the coattails.

So, then, we should remain content to promote "Libertarianism" as a household name, except absent the primary fundamental principle of Individual Liberty itself - and we should promote the philosophy as a means of activism? And if we don't promote the philosophy, then, we're, as the op mentioned, not real activists? Because that's Johnsons' position. Have you thought his positions through all the way? Because some of them are patently contrary to the fundamental foundation of Individual Liberty. That's a big deal. Mainly, because as you mention, some friends want to encourage Libertarianism as a household name through him. Which means his philosophy. I'm sorry but he just ain't the one. He is patently not the one.

Now. Two things, though. 1 - I'm not a defeatist. I'm a realist. I try to take the time to consider exactly what the other guy is actually stimulating and 2 - sitting in the corner pouting is likely the very last thing I'll ever do. It's dangerous to your cause to assume that I would. I'm likely not the only one either. I was very clear to say that I oppose this specific brand of coercion. That means that I actively oppose it.

Ah well. I'm going to go weed my flower beds.

Just don't forget relevant priorities is all I'm saying. I get that people are upset because we've lost elections in the past. I do. I understand that people want to contribute. They want to feel like they're part of something. They want to feel significant. But I see no logical reason or benefit in trading the primary foundation for the principles of Individual Liberty for a label in an election that you're going to lose anyway. To say it's based on principle is bunk. If it is, then, it's premised upon the wrong principles given that the candidate's philosophy that you're endorsing in the name of Liberty (as a houshold name, no less) is patently contrary to the very foundation that establishes Individual Liberty.

Just know, though, that if you don't think things through, then, you may well end up selling yourself the very rope that you'll surely hang by. Be careful. Don't be misled by people who are content only to count their names. It is best to leave your mark. But it has to be the right mark. And a mark left for the right reasons. And one left on the more relevant and worthy field of battle.

Ah well. I'm going to go weed my flower beds.

Just don't forget relevant priorities is all I'm saying. I get that people are upset because we've lost elections in the past. I do. I understand that eople want to contribute. They want to feel like they're part of something. They want to feel significant. But I see no logical reason or benefit in trading the primary foundation for the principles of Individual Liberty for a label in an election that you're going to lose anyway. To say it's based on principle is bunk. If it is, then, it's premised upon the wrong principles given that the candidate's philosophy that you're endorsing in the name of Liberty (as a houshold name, no less) is patently contrary to the very foundation that establishes Individual Liberty.

Just know, though, that if you don't think things through, then, you may well end up selling yourself the very rope that you'll surely hang by. Be careful. Don't be misled by people who are content only to count their names. It is best to leave your mark. But it has to be the right mark. And a mark left for the right reasons.

You folks have a good day.

It is a stepping stone in the right direction. Is it the shore of Liberty? Nope. But a stepping stone we should use to get to the shore of Liberty. Using your attitude, we will be pushing up daisies in your flower bed before we see any more Liberty in our Lifetime. And he does have a chance with all the Bern victims, Hillary haters and Trump adverse. I want to seize this first time ever opportunity to make some headway, instead of pacing on the short of despair waiting for the right ship or right stepping stone to appear. Good day as well.

Include Gary Johnson in national Presidential polls

https://www.change.org/p/cnn-include-gary-johnson-in-national-presidential-polls

The Commission on Presidential Debates determines whether or not a candidate can be included in the debates based on their performance in five selected national polls. In order to be included in the debates, a candidate must be polling at 15% nationwide. We, the undersigned, believe that Governor Gary Johnson, the Libertarian nominee for President has a chance to reach that threshold. A recent Fox News poll found Gov. Johnson to have 12% support nationwide and his mainstream media exposure in recent weeks has been unprecedented for a Libertarian Presidential candidate, which means that his support has likely grown. Paired with the fact that polls have consistently shown Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton to be among the most polarizing candidates in history, we believe that there is a real opportunity this year for a third-party candidate to make a difference. With the Libertarian Party being the only third party likely to appear on the ballot in all fifty states and the political experience of both Gov. Johnson and his running mate, Governor William Weld, we believe that they are the most likely to capitalize on this opportunity. We urge you to include Governor Johnson in your national polling and help give the American voter another option this November.

This petition will be delivered to:

CNN
Rasmussen Reports
ABC
CBS
Washington Post
NBC
Wall Street Journal
Douglas Schwartz, PhD - Quinnipiac University Poll
Bridget Jameson - Pew Research Center
USA Today

If Gary wins just one state, the world turns upside down.

Every stripe of libertarian should see advantage in breaking the two party duopoly, in destroying forever the "don't waste your vote" narrative.

We can go back to tearing each other to pieces after November 8, okay, but for now let's try winning, for once, shall we?

Libertarian Gary Johnson looks to boost credibility, with a little help from Drew Carey

http://www.trbimg.com/img-5795521c/turbine/la-1469403684-snap-photo/750/750x422

The email invitation for a Gary Johnson fundraiser hosted by comic Drew Carey called for a “Libertarian comfortable” dress code, which could have been cause for concern. After all, just two months ago, at the Libertarian Party convention, a portly man stripped down to his skivvies and danced onstage for two minutes, with C-SPAN cameras capturing every move.

But on Saturday night, in Carey’s Mediterranean-style villa, “Libertarian comfortable” meant mostly blazers, jeans and cocktail dresses. There were chi-chi appetizers and American flag-themed name badges and a sprinkling of famous faces.

It was an utterly normal political fundraiser, which may be exactly what Johnson needs to help power his utterly abnormal bid to win the White House as a third-party candidate.

The fundraiser marked a milestone of sorts for Johnson, who is striving to propel his candidacy, and his party, from the margins to the mainstream. When he last ran for president, in 2012, he certainly wasn’t standing in a well-known television personality’s backyard, eating vanilla ice cream and snapping photos with admirers.

“Nothing could compare,” he said. “Nothing.”

Libertarians sense enormous opportunity in this year of enormously unpopular major party candidates. But Johnson, a former GOP governor of New Mexico, remains far behind in name recognition and fundraising; it is far from clear if he’ll get the 15% in polls which would qualify him for the presidential debates in the fall.

http://www.trbimg.com/img-57883279/turbine/la-na-trailguide-updates-drew-carey-to-host-fundraiser-for-1468542375/400/400x225 (http://www.latimes.com/nation/politics/trailguide/la-na-trailguide-updates-drew-carey-to-host-fundraiser-for-1468542375-htmlstory.html)

Johnson’s second shot at the presidency has focused on building legitimacy with the broader electorate: tapping former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld as his running mate, tirelessly working the media circuit, and now, rubbing elbows with celebrities.

“You have to create this notion that you might actually win,” Johnson said. “For a sophisticated few at the moment, there is that recognition. I think that's going to get bigger as you go forward.”

The event’s cohost interjected: "Can we have a Hollywood moment? One of Drew's “Price is Right” models loves you and wants to say a quick hello."

There were several Hollywood moments. Krist Novoselic, the former bassist of Nirvana, made a detour to Los Angeles just for the event, flying into town on his private Piper Saratoga. The “Price is Right” model, Gwendolyn Osborne-Smith, brought her husband, former NBA player and commentator Kenny Smith, who explained he was open to hearing more about Libertarians thanks to his friendship with Carey, the game show’s host.

In all, about 145 people attended the shindig, which planners said would bring in about $100,000 for the campaign. Two founders of separate pro-Johnson super PACs also hobnobbed with the crowd, which including at least one Libertarian-leaning mega-donor, the tomato magnate Chris Rufer.

The courting of deep-pocketed donors may be crucial to Johnson’s chances. His campaign brought in less than $700,000 in June, according to filings with the Federal Election Commission.

Throughout the evening — as refreshments progressed from appetizer-sized chicken and waffles to a buffet of flank steak and roasted heirloom carrots to “homemade pudding shots” at the dessert bar — guests offered different takes on what kind of success the Johnson-Weld ticket could achieve this year.

“I think they can get elected,” said Novoselic. “Miracles happen. I was in a band in 1990. People didn't think that we were ever going to be No. 1 on the Billboard. And then mores change, things go viral.”

Carey, who described himself as politically unenthused until he discovered Libertarianism through Reason magazine, acknowledged that a Johnson victory may be a long shot. But, he said, even swinging the balance in once state might be enough to send a message.

“Then the very best scenario is that people quit treating this country as a two-party country,” he said “and they always include the Libertarian point of view in every single discussion.”

http://www.trbimg.com/img-576c2580/turbine/la-na-trailguide-1466648037/400/400x225 (http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-trailguide-1466648037-htmlstory.html)

At a question-and-answer session, Johnson laid out that perspective: fiscally conservative, socially liberal, noninterventionist in foreign affairs.

Asked about Islamic State, he took a decidedly nonalarmist tone, asserting that the terrorist group had largely been contained geographically, although he acknowledged that the problem of the group inspiring “lone-wolf” attackers posed a thornier challenge. He vowed to slash taxes and pined for abolishing the IRS “if he could wave a magic wand.”

About the Supreme Court, he was unusually deferential to his vice-presidential pick, saying the judiciary would be Weld’s area of expertise.
Entirely absent were the quirkier queries that dominated the party’s convention, held in Florida, where diehard Libertarians debated the need for driver’s licenses or civil rights legislation.

“This is not like Orlando,” said Kerry Welsh, the event’s co-organizer, who expressed frustration with the party’s “out of the mainstream, wacko types.”
Idiosyncratic reputation aside, Welsh said Libertarianism is more in line with American political sensibilities now than when he first joined the party as a 19-year-old in 1978.

“My whole life, I've been used to people telling me, ‘Boy, Kerry, you have some really crazy views,’” Welsh said, citing his support for legalizing marijuana and same-sex marriage.

“Now my friends say, ‘Kerry, you are really making a lot more sense than you used to make,’” he added. “And I haven't changed a view on one thing in 35 years. So that's a lot of fun.”

I will never vote for Gary Johnson. Never.

If people are going to write in votes, they should write them in for someone who is actually running, and who will be on some ballots. That would be Darrell Castle. Ron Paul endorsed the ticket he was on as VP in 2008.
