I support Johnson more than many on this site, but it is all based on what is important to me. I was drawn to Ron Paul for his stand on foreign policy, war, peace, individual liberty, and national debt.
Hillary is the opposite of the RP position on foreign policy. Although Trump has decent ideas about NATO, I get the impression he is ready to launch a $5 trillion dollar war on ISIS, destabilize the Middle East further and create a worse mess. (All to the chants of USA! USA!)
Another important issue for me is the Bill of Rights. The two party system has been destroying it for decades now. I don't see Clinton reversing the trend. Trump's public disdain for the 1rst amendment makes me very afraid. His support for the 2nd amendment looks so phony.
I have a real issue with the debt doubling every eight years. Clinton does not address it; she has some big spending plans. Trump wants to build up the military and renegotiate the terms of our debt. Building up an already oversized military is wasteful and renegotiating the debt sounds scary. And the wall is not going to be cheap. Looks like the biggest broken window project in history.
It is hard to find candidates that aligns with everyone's values. I found this quiz useful: http://www.isidewith.com/
